Tuesday in General Art Advice – In literature, a “foil” is a character who draws attention to the main character by being different. . . opposite, even. On Tuesday Susan Holland will explain how that concept can apply to artists, too.

Wednesday in Featured Artists – Drawing on her Russian heritage, Yelena Dyumin creates classically inspired paintings that still manage to look right at home in a contemporary setting. See her work this Wednesday, and as always, feel free to submit your own artwork to be featured as well.
