NEW CLASSES BY GWENDOLYN STINE
Gwendolyn is an award winning artist at the national level, with Peter Trippi, editor of Fine Arts Connoisseur magazine, choosing her drawing "Peace of Strength" as Best of Show at the 2013 Laumeister Fine Art Competition. Her work has also been selected for inclusion in exhibitions at the Salmangundi Club in NYC as well as here in Arizona at the Herberger Theater Center, SkyHarbor Airport & Tohono Chul in Tucson.
Since her youth, growing up in Bethlehem PA, Gwendolyn has always been fascinated with the concept of "point to point relationships … infinite possibilities" on all it's varying levels. In the early '90's, synchronicity brought her to study with Myron Barnstone at his much lauded Barnstone Studios. It was here she received her classical training in drawing & the use of Dynamic Symmetry. Aha! The penny dropped, for this study of disegno brought Art, Science & Theology all together, forming a circle of understanding; for now, it was easy to see the thread running through the whole. This gave solidity and explanation to her belief that 'Nothing is Arbitrary' and provided greater insight into the idea of just what Creation might be. It is the awareness & seeking of coincidence & connections that form the basis of her life's work, no matter if it is time spent with one of her special needs clients, in her garden, shooting photos or sitting down to draw - "All is in relation."
