2012 November Featured Juried Artist Member of the Month
Sally Blitzer; Watercolorist
Sally's friends and fans call her artwork "Whimsical" because of her playful approach to her subject matter. . "The most rewarding thing to me is when I see people look at my work and smile." She says. "I think my life's philosophy is to make everyone happy and spread the joy that can be found all around us."
Sally Blitzer has been a lover of art ever since she can remember. She began as an oil painter and eventually switched to painting in watercolors. Sally studied in New York at The New School and also in Providence at the Contemporary Art School in College Hill as well as studying privately under the instruction of Carole Berren AWS for over 9 years. She is a member of the Wickford Art Association as well as South County Association where she shows her work. She has also exhibited at the Providence Art Club and numerous other venues.
Sally's sense of humor shines through in all of her work. Her philosophy on art is that "People need to look at it and feel the message the artist is trying to convey through the strokes and the shadows and light-the color and composition. Art is essential for any community and the artist that wants to express themselves through their art needs to love what they do first and when they do, they will convey their message through their work."
Sally believes art brings people together as they create and view it together. "Many fine friendships that last a lifetime have come through art related connections. Some people create art and never show it, but the need to create something beautiful or interesting and thought provoking is part of who they are and it brings them great satisfaction." And for those who do chose to put themselves out there and exhibit or attempt to exhibit their work she recommends that they be true to their heart and soul. "Find your passion! You win some you lose some, it happens to all those who take the risk and put their work on exhibit. When you get in a juried show or win an award it is great affirmation but when rejection occurs you have to remember it is simply a part of the process, don't take it to heart, it is only one person's opinion."
