Sid’s Studio: Night Landscapes
One of the themes featured in our current exhibit, Picturing the American West, is “Twilight into Night.” Sunset, twilight, and night have long been used metaphorically in works of art and were settings often employed by western artists to communicate their nostalgia for the passing of the Old West. In the last decade of Frederic Remington’s life, the artist increasingly set his western narratives under the dark of night in a series of paintings known as his nocturnes, or night paintings. Join us for our next Sid’s Studio adult workshop as local artist Erika Duque explores Remington’s nocturnes and guides participants through painting their own night-based acrylic landscape painting.
Erika Duque is a landscape and nature-based painter who lives and works in Fort Worth, TX. She is originally from Flushing, Queens, NY. Duque received her BFA at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her MFA in painting at Texas Christian University. She has been featured in over thirty solo and group shows combined, throughout Dallas Fort Worth. In 2017, Duque was nominated by Ro2 Gallery for Rising Star Fundraiser at the Oak Cliff Society of Fine Arts. Duque is currently represented by Fort Works Art Gallery in Fort Worth, TX.
