At 7:30pm, there will be an artist demonstration by nationally recognized, Award winner Ted Matz. Ted, a contemporary realist, paints in a relatively representational style, while his paintings also express delight in the patterns of light, color, and shapes found in the everyday world. He will present a watercolor demonstration and discuss planning and building a stronger composition, making more impressive color choices, as well as how to make your watercolor pigment more powerful, vibrant and concentrated.

Matz shared, “I am in constant awe of all the wonderful forms, structures, colors and patterns that nature produces. All of these amazing natural elements have always inspired me to create as an artist. My hope is that my artwork will draw attention to the beauty most people overlook and take for granted in their daily lives.” 


His artwork has received numerous awards in regional art competitions and he has shown his work in group and one-man shows in New York City, the Midwest and New England. Ted is dedicated to developing a better understanding of the arts through adult art education programs. He currently teaches at the Lighthouse Center for the Arts, Tequesta, Florida, and conducts summer workshops at SnowFarm, Williamsburg, Massachusetts. His teaching experience also includes art centers in Michigan and Vermont. Ted teaches watercolor and creativity classes, as well as, “Drawing for the Absolutely Terrified”, an introductory course for the understanding of the basic principles of art and artistic expression through drawing.
