SKB Workshop, 2022:
Denman at SKB Workshop

Andrew Deman (pictured at right with fellow artist Cathy Ferrell) will be a returning guest instructor at this year's Susan Kathleen Black (SKB) Foundation Workshop in Dubois, WY, where he will be giving demonstrations and artist critiques. After several years absence due to Covid-19, Andrew is excited to return to his favorite annual workshop event, which is as much family reunion as artist gathering. Denman has been affiliated with SKB since their very first workshop, now over twenty years ago, and can heartily endorse this event. Featured instructors this year are Aaron Blaise and Julie Jeppsen, with returning guest instructors including Guy Combes, Suzie Seery-Lester, Caleb Goggins, and MANY more. Currently the workshop is at well below capacity, which is a great opportunity for those who have applied in previous years only to find the workshop sold out almost immediately following the opening of registration. For those unable to attend, in person, there is also a virtual component this year.

The SKB Foundation, created for the advancement of art education, was initially established in 2001 as a memorial fund by James E. Parkman in honor of his wife, Susan Kathleen Black, who died unexpectedly just before Christmas 2000 after a lengthy illness. Susan Kathleen was a devoted artist and student who took every opportunity to learn from master artists and skilled experts to develop her own talent. In early 2003 the memorial fund was granted 501 (c )(3) status and became the Susan Kathleen Black Foundation, Inc. Its mission is to continue to fund art education for a broad range of art programs throughout the nation, while giving artists of all ages the opportunity to develop their skills and achieve their goals as artists. In addition to numerous ongoing school programs, the Foundation hosts an annual workshop for professional and aspiring artists at the Headwaters Conference Center each fall in Dubois, WY.

Scottsdale Artist School
Andrew Denman at Work in the Studio

Join Andrew Denman as he shares the secrets to his dramatically different approach to painting in an easy, step-by-step tutorial. Denman is known for his beautiful portrayals of wildlife in a unique style combining realism with stylization and abstraction. You will employ a series of thick, impasto underpaintings, cover over with many layers of gesso, then sand down to reveal astonishing textures, patterns, and colors, which can either stand on their own, function as an abstract foil to any subject, or provide brilliant underlayment for natural textures like fur, feathers, bark, rocks, and grass. The first three days will focus on a series of easy-to-follow exercises which will provide you all the tools necessary to practice or even master this technique to create a variety of effects in any genre or subject of painting, not just wildlife. The last two days, students will put what they have learned to practical use, creating a small finished painting of their own. If you want to try something entirely new, this is your workshop! Some specialized materials will be provided.

"Focus on Contemporary Wildlife Artists" at Astoria Fine Art: Jakcson Hole, Wyoming
Desert Cottontail by Andrew Denman

This July, Astoria Fine Art in Jackson Hole, WY, will host "Focus on Contemporary Wildlife Artists”, an exciting show featuring new paintings by Andrew Denman. Denman will focus on new work featuring mammals, including an enormous life-sized bear, as well as his ongoing "Totem" and "String Theory" Series.

Astoria is pleased to be back in business after a two month closure for quarentine, during which time owner Greg Fulton focused on a major gallery-wide renovation. Visitors to the show should expect a brighter, more modern space, but the same friendly, welcoming, and low-pressure environment they have come to expect from Astoria Fine Art.

Quarantine Quick-Studies: On Facebook
Quarantine Quick Study of Cardinal by Andrew Denman

Be a part of a new art phenomenon, the Quarantine Quick-Study. It started as a lark on Facebook, when Denman posted a colorful, gestural mixed media painting of a Vermilion Flycatcher on April 7th and offered it for just $250 postage paid to the first person to send him a private message. It sold in just eight minutes. Between April 7th and this writing (June 10th, 2020) Denman has sold over thirty of these little gems to collectors all over the US. Once a week, Denman posts one of these studies for sale on Facebook, and they seldom last more than a few hours, but the artist has created more than a dozen as commissions and offered even more to individual collectors by "first-right of refusal." If you have something in mind, don't be shy.

With so much stress and anxiety in the world, people need art more than ever, but with the financial uncertainty caused by lost jobs, furloughs, and quarantine shut-downs, many art-lovers are too nervous to make large purhcuses. The answer is simple: treat yourself to something small and affordable by Andrew Denman. Because they are much quicker and more spontanteous to produce than Denman's usual studio work, the artist can afford to offer them at prices within almost anyone's budget. These pieces are selling faster than Denman can create them, so the inventory at any given time will NOT be posted to this website. If you want to know what is available, or if you have a special request in mind, please contact Andrew directly through Facebook Messenger, Email, or by Phone (Please call only between 8am and 4pm MST). Treat yourself!

"Between the Lines: a Two-Person Exhibition at Astoria Fine Art: Jackson Hole, Wyoming
Virtual Catalogue by Andrew Denman

This August, Astoria Fine Art in Jackson Hole, WY, will host " Between the Lines”, an exciting show featuring new paintings by Andrew Denman and new sculptures by Don Rambadt. Denman will focus on his ongoing "Totem Series," whimsical and thought-provoking pieces featuring birds and animals arranged in precarious towers, and his new "String Theory Series," which focuses on birds interacting with abstract shapes, lines, and vibrant color fields. Don's new body of work, "Uncut," will explore a rawer, more spontaneous approach to his work. While these sculptures will still capture the stylized, open forms we have come to expect, the artist is challenging himself to compose the works using only cut-offs and “scraps” from his other projects, with a bare minimum of manipulation and editing.
