Artist of the Month

CAROL KESSLER

We invite you to visit Gallery 510 Art & Framing in November to see Carol Kessler’s “Sticks, No Brushes”, on display all month.

“My November show features two-dimensional work created since the pandemic, beginning early on at home with oil pastels in a small format, a relatively new medium for me, along with oil paint sticks in a large format. Pastels is the third ‘stick’ that will be represented, a medium I’ve worked with for many years.”

During this stay-at-home time of the pandemic, Carol has learned more about the use of oil pastels by studying online and through experimentation. She has studied the pastel landscape techniques of Karen Margulis, changing her approach when creating with pastels and oil paint sticks, too.

Stacking Frames

Pastel artists all know that their work must be under glass and the glass must not touch the art. If you choose not to use mats on your pastel then a separation needs to be created in another way. One way is to stack frames. Choose a narrow frame to go next to the artwork to separate the art from the glass then stack another frame on top to hold the glass in place. It’s a beautiful way to frame a pastel painting.In addition to using an actual frame to separate the painting from the glass, an attractive fillet can be used, too. This alleviates the need for a deeper outer frame. A fillet is a slim piece of wood usually used to enhance a frame or placed between the art and the mat. Stacking frames can be used for other works, too. A narrow frame with beading or in gold or another color can be used inside a deeper frame to enhance it. Create your own look to suit your style.
