Still Life by Joseph Gyurcsak

“Capturing The Essence of Your Subject” Workshop
March 18, 2018

We had a packed house for the  Still Life Workshop with Joseph Gyurcsak.  Some photos are included below of artists working on techniques taught in the workshop.  Joseph did demos on how to establish successful starts and finishes. There were also personal and group discussions along with critiques during the workshop.

Joseph also spoke at one of our Programs earlier this year.  You can read more about him on our blog post and see more of his work on his personal website.

Todd Burroughs is the founding director of Atelier Art Studio. He is best known for his realist drawings, oil paintings and passion for teaching. He has received numerous awards and honorifics for his paintings.

While attending Columbia College Todd was introduced to classical art making techniques and shifted his study from Abstract Expressionism to Classical Painting methods. He focused on oil painting techniques at the Atelier Alternative in Chicago. It was at this time that he began his life.

In recent years he has expanded his art work to include terraced photography. His paintings range from the monumental, eight feet by twenty feet to the minute, three inches by five inches and embrace a broad range of drawing and painting methodologies.


Monday Night Program:  Impressionism

Joseph Gyurcsak

Monday, March 19 2018 @ 7 pm

Joseph Gyurcsak will provide a lecture on impressionism. He will reveal the artists, subjects and methods that brought impressionism to the world.

He is the Resident Artist / Brand Manager for Blick / Utrecht Art Supplies. He is author of painting articles, instructor, juror and art materials expert. Joseph also travels extensively conducting lectures, painting demonstrations and workshops at major art institutions throughout the United States.

He paints a broad range of subject matter including interiors, still life, figure and landscape painting. He has a keen sense for capturing the essence of his subject matter with a bold and candid approach. He exhibits in galleries across the country his award winning paintings continue to pique the interest of collectors nationwide.

“My paintings express a sense of light, atmosphere and mood; they transcend the techniques that were employed to create them and breathe the very light and atmosphere they were painted in. I like to capture the fleeting moments of life; the sublime manifestations of light and color, their aesthetic influences on the subject.”
