Happenings

We are open!

Following the current guidelines, we are happy to welcome you back into the gallery. We used the lockdown to paint the whole gallery, come by and see for yourself how the paintings look on our new walls. 

Open Thursday through Saturday 11am – 4pm.

Wiegardt’s Plein Air Workshop

Ready to get out and paint? I sure am!

I am greatly enjoying our new online Mentoring Classes, but I am looking forward to paint outdoors again! My plein air workshop planned on the lovely Long Beach Peninsula, WA, which I call home, is scheduled to take place with recent travel restrictions lifted. I’m looking forward to paint in some of my favorite spots again: the boatyard of the Port of Ilwaco, the beaches at Beards Hollow and Cape Disappointment, and the historic church in Oysterville.

Come join me!

NEW Online Mentoring Classes

Eric is offering a virtual classroom experience via Zoom! 

Our live online classes are taught via Zoom. Students have the opportunity to interact with Eric and other participants, watch live demos and receive feedback and instruction. You will have access to a class chat forum where you can share work, comment and ask questions. Once you’ve enrolled, you’ll receive instructions about how to access the class.

We are planning on three separate classes in June:

1.  Wednesday afternoons at 4:30pm
2.  Saturday mornings at 9am
3.  Saturday late mornings at 10:30am
 

You can sign up HERE for the one that fits your schedule the best!

Here is what current participants of the Saturday Critique Group have to say:

“This Zoom format for workshops is working very well. There is a feeling of being one-on-one with Eric, even when he’s critiquing other paintings. Eric’s excellent teaching and vast knowledge is not at all hampered by the Zoom format.”  – John, WA

“This class gives me the much needed focus in my week to be accountable for at least one painting. I am happy when Saturday dawns and I get to see other people’s work and listen to the critique. For me it is the most helpful experience in my adventure as a painter. At this very difficult time, the opportunity to take this Zoom class has been a real rescue for me; to ‘be’ in a group, see friends I’ve painted with before, and enjoy Eric and Anne’s warm wonderful mentorship.”  – Barbara, Georgia

“Thanks, Eric. Your critique and the work of other artists are doing exactly what I’d hoped for – more learning and more growing on my end as an artist. I see and think differently. ”  – Stan, WA

Switzerland: Lauterbrunnen

Plein Air Workshop

September 13 – 27, 2020

Join Eric and his wife Ann in the majestic mountainscape of Switzerland!
We will stay in Lauterbrunnen, a quiet village surrounded by rocky cliffs and 72 gorgeous waterfalls! 

Situated in the heart of the Swiss Alps, we will enjoy the natural beauty around us: travelling to neighboring towns Gimmelwald and Murren by train and taking the cable car to the mountain tops for astounding views – perfect for plein air painting!
