The show Hidden in Plain Sight will feature within the Wayland Library’s annual Wayland Reads program. As this year’s program highlights book selections that concern the Gardner Museum heist and other art-based crimes, Arts Wayland has “framed” its show title within this greater programmatic theme.

The Wayland Library has designated display areas throughout its main level in which the work will be hung. The show will run March 17th through March 23rd, with a public reception after-hours on Friday, March 17th from 7-9pm.

Instructor Testimonials

Celia is an extremely talented artist with an incredible understanding of color. She offers her students a variety of pictures for them to paint from or assists them with their own pictures. She guides students toward beautiful compositions by helping them use a piece of a picture, or freely add to a painting. She moves around to each student offering suggestions and demonstrating use of color and brush techniques. While supporting each student’s unique style, Celia offers constructive help in a kind caring way. Having studied with Celia, for several years, I have improved as a painter and completed many beautiful paintings with her guidance.

I enjoyed the workshop very much and hope to participate in another one. I found the demos very helpful and appreciated seeing how to achieve certain effects and then trying it myself. Thank you also for bringing snacks and having tea on hand.
I’m inspired to keep at it and have a collection of photos, including some of my late Australian shepherd, that I’ve always wanted to paint from.

I enjoyed Jack's workshop very much. He is a wonderful teacher.  I learned from so many of his examples from his palette to the types of brushes he used. What a wonderful experience for those that attend. - Jack Keledjian event participant - Marilyn S
