WCA EXHIBIT @ Trinidad Art Center, 426 Trinity St., Trinidad
Ocean Sky, Acrylic Painting by Rueben Mayes.
“Hello All My Friends: My name is Reuben Mayes. I live in McKinleyville. I am an artist and my style is named Abstract Expressionism. I feel excited and happy and proud and silly and crazy when I am painting.” -Reuben T. Mayes,
Artist Reuben uses acrylic on canvas because it dries faster than oils and acrylic is easy for him to apply with his high-energy brush strokes on any size canvas, representative of Abstract Expressionism, a painting style in which an artist applies paint rapidly and with force onto a small to huge canvas in an effort to show feelings and emotions, painting gestural, non-geometrically, sometimes applying paint with large brushes, sometimes dripping or even throwing it onto canvas.
Abstract Expressionism is characterized by a strong dependence on what appears to be accident and chance but which may be highly planned. Sometimes an Abstract Expressionist is concerned with adopting a peaceful and mystical approach to a purely abstract image. Usually there is no effort to represent subject matter. All of Reuben’s work is abstract and expressive with the spontaneity of Reuben’s approach to his work drawing from and releasing the creativity of his unconscious mind. The expressive method of his painting is considered as important as the painting itself. Reuben insists on painting in his work boots so he named his website “art in my work boots”. World-famous Abstract Expressionist Artist Jackson Pollack also insisted on wearing heavy leather boots when he painted commenting it made him feel grounded and connected to the earth.
Wheat Weaving by Kathy Reid
(Reids’ Weeds) 7pm Demonstration
Weed Weaving by Kathy Reid: Learn and practice wheat weaving skills!
“Welsh Border Fan” by Kathy Reid Kathy bases her work on traditional designs. She explains that wheat weaving or straw art as it is now called, dates back to the beginning of agriculture. The last sheaf of grain was tied or woven to provide a home for the spirit of the grain and kept safe in the home until spring. This art developed with the spread of farming.
