Studio to Plein Air - Seeing Expressive Color

Are you interested in learning how to paint outside in nature? June 22, 9AM to 3PM, Susan Nicholas-Gephart will be teaching "Studio to Plein Air" at Rhoneymeade.

Discover how to see beyond the obvious within the landscape, and use expressive color to capture the essence of mood and atmosphere in sky, water, and more. Whether you work in pastel, oil, or both mediums, you will learn to see the depth of color and create a unique and personally expressive painting.
Skilled in both pastel and oil, Susan is a seasoned plein air and studio painter that will lead you to your personal color expression in the medium of your choice. The morning will begin with a short demo and a “Hands-on” focusing on methods that will aid in color expression.


The use of underpainting and color mixing will be explored in both pastel and oil. “Thumbnail Sketches” and their importance in supporting strong compositions and values within color, will help you “Target Focus” on what inspires you in the landscape. There will be personal time at your easel following the morning demo, with support and attention given at each artist’s easel. I welcome the beginner and create an atmosphere in which they can flourish and "Fear No Art"!

Arbor Day at Rhoneymeade

Arbor Day at Rhoneymeade

ENJOY A BEAUTIFUL EVENING AT OUR FARM AND GARDEN

Activities begin at 6pm when we plant three new heritage apple varieties in the orchard, followed by a special screening of THE PERMACULTURE ORCHARD movie at 7pm. Cider and snacks provided.

“The Permaculture Orchard : Beyond Organic is a feature-length educational film that will teach you how to set up your own permaculture orchard at any scale. We recognize the limitations of the organic model as a substitute to conventional fruit growing, and want to propose a more holistic, regenerative approach based on permaculture principles. Based on 20 years of applied theory and trial and error, biologist and educator Stefan Sobkowiak shares his experience transforming a conventional apple orchard into an abundance of biodiversity that virtually takes care of itself. The concepts, techniques and tips presented in this film will help you with your own project, whether it is just a few fruit trees in your urban backyard, or a full-scale multi-acre commercial orchard.

Trained as a biologist and landscape architect, Sobkowiak has taught fruit production, landscape plants and design, and natural history of vertebrates at Montreal’s McGill University. He’s been teaching permaculture since 1995.”

Bird Walk with Joe Gyekis and James Lesher

Surrounded by a mosaic of hedgerows, successional woodlands and forest, Rhoneymeade farm is 150 acres, certified organic (primarily hay), with a six-acre arboretum at its center. We will do about 2 hours of gentle hiking. Be prepared for a bit of mud if it is wet, but nothing extreme. We will look for a mix of returning breeders and migrants such as American Pipit, Blue-headed Vireo, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Brown Thrasher, Palm and Yellow-rumped Warblers, Eastern Meadowlark, etc. We will postpone to April 28 if rain is very heavy, but continue as scheduled with light rain.

Rhoneymeade Arboretum and Sculpture Garden is 9 miles east of State College, midway between Linden Hall and Centre Hall. Follow route 45 E out of Boalsburg for 4.5 miles past the junction with 322, then turn left on Rimmey Rd. After about 0.3 mile of climbing up the hill, the road forces a sharp left. Small signs direct you to parking.

Birdworks Photography Exhibit: From the Heart of Mexico (Desde el Corazón de México)

Stacie Bird is a photographer who has lived and worked in Centre County since the early 1980s. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Penn State in Film in 1985. Her background in film making guides her photography and visual storytelling. 

She writes:
"The mountain town of San Miguel de Allende in the state of Guanajuato is an oasis, rich in culture, religion, and politics, in the heart of Mexico. From the brutal beauty of the landscape to the warmth of the people, traditions and food, this vibrant city has held a large part of my heart (mi corazón) for the past 10 years.

"These pieces speak to my love of the vibrant colors that are daily life in Mexico. From the simple adobe walls to the ornate colonial churches, the bold and saturated colors of the architecture are, at once surprising, always inspiring and ever-changing.

"The simple beauty of everyday objects compel me to observe, record and share."

John Smith, in consultation with Joe Gyekis, has created a site that integrates Google Maps, eBird, and other ornithological data. These experienced naturalists will demonstrate how the site works and show you how to use its maps and search functions on your own. If you're interested in birds and birding, come out to Rhoneymeade for this fascinating presentation -- and do a little birding on the grounds, too!
