ACO presents Erwin Timmers

The ACO presents Erwin Timmers

hosted by Friend of the ACO, Michael Janis

Saturday, June 24, 10:30-11:30

From my good buds at ACO:

I am thrilled to announce that Erwin Timmers, an eco-artist known for his work in glass and steel, will be presenting this Saturday, June 24th, for the Art Clinic Online. Erwin is not only a dear friend of mine but also an incredibly talented artist, and I am sure that you will enjoy his work and the inspiring stories behind it. In fact, you might even recognize some of his installations around the DMV area in public spaces.

At ACO, we have been hosting some remarkable artist discussions. I highly recommend checking out the interview we conducted last year with Michael Janis, co-director of the Washington Glass School, who will be introducing Erwin this Saturday. Michael and Erwin frequently collaborate on various projects. You can find their discussions and more on the ACO page.

Also, mark your calendar for July 8th as Glen Echo's own, Christine Lashley will be presenting on her work as well as give us a glimpse of what it is like being a plein air artist competing for prize money. She will be fresh off her trip at the Telluride Plein Air Arts Festival so we will get to hear all about her experience.

Although we have fewer summer classes at the Art Clinic this year due to some much-needed vacation time for Mariana and myself, we do have exciting summer workshops available. These workshops cover a range of topics, from Color Theory to Figure Drawing and Painting, and they promise to be both enjoyable and immersive. Designed to be short yet intensive, they allow you to pursue your artistic exploration while accommodating your summer vacations.
