PAINTER STUART SHILS TO SPEAK AT JOHNS HOPKINS
The Homewood Art Workshops kicks off its 35th anniversary celebration with a slide talk by renowned landscape painter Stuart Shils on Nov. 2, 2009.
Shils’ talk, "27 Years Outside," will begin at 5:30 p.m. in Room 101 of the F. Ross Jones Building, Mattin Center, on the Homewood campus at 3400 N.Charles St. in Baltimore. A reception will follow Shils’ presentation.
A Philadelphia native, Shils has been a devoted plein air landscapist since 1982. His richly atmospheric paintings of his hometown, as well as Ireland, Israel and Italy, have been exhibited in New York, Boston, San Francisco and Tel Aviv. Shils’ 13 summers spent painting on the coast of County Mayo, Ireland were the subject of the 2004 PBS documentary, Ballycastle.
