You Are Invited to enjoy this unusual presentation of a new and exciting techniques:
Inks and Watercolours on Yupo Paper, a unique new surface that creates amazing and colorful visual and textural effects .Join us for hors d'oeuvres and Artist Presentations Why "Dances"?...Yupo surface is impenetrable...inks and watercolours float on the top of the surface...hence it is a matter of taming the inks to lay down where the artist wants it. Therefore the inks "Dancee" on the surface. The artist Controls the Dance!!! All three artists are also dancers in their own right....here is some info on these Artists:

Angela MarinariWentz From Conshohocken, PA. She worked in many mediums including wood for years and while blowing glass in Philadelphia, she and her mentor started a small glass business. After life changed her course, she began working smaller and that meant jewelry. Angela worked in silver, copper and bronze for more than a decade in and near Taos, NM. Another surprise has changed her course again and she is now revisiting a medium she first loved in art school 40 years ago. Ink. Only now the inks are brilliantly hued. Angela works all originals on Yupo because she feels it best supports her process but images can be printed on a variety of modern bases including metal and glas
