The Mas­ter Teacher Art Ex­hi­bi­tion will hold an open­ing re­cep­tion on Satur­day from 4-6p.m.

NEW BER­LIN » Golden Artist Col­ors has part­nered with DCMO, Madi­son-Oneida and Herkimer County BOCES to host its sec­ond Mas­ter Teacher Art Ex­hi­bi­tion.

The open­ing re­cep­tion, to be held Satur­day, Feb. 17 from 4-6 p.m. in The Loft Gallery at Golden Artist Col­ors, will fea­ture art­work by 17 lo­cal art teach­ers who par­tic­i­pated in the re­cent Mas­ter Teacher Pro­gram. The event, held at 188 Bell Road, is free and open to the public.

In the fall of 2017, Golden Artist Col­ors part­nered with DCMO, Madi­son-Oneida and Herkimer County BOCES to of­fer two pro­fes­sional paint­ing in­struc­tion cour­ses for art teach­ers in the lo­cal com­mu­nity. The eightweek pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment pro­gram be­gan in Au­gust and con­cluded late Oc­to­ber. It was fo­cused on help­ing par­tic­i­pants ex­plore a range of paint­ing me­dia and tech­niques to re­in­force or es­tab­lish their own voice.

The Mas­ter Teacher Pro­gram was fa­cil­i­tated by lo­cal artist Chelsea Gib­son, who re­ceived a bach­e­lor of fine arts from the Rhode Is­land School of De­sign in Paint­ing, and a mas­ter of fine arts in paint­ing from Bos­ton Univer­sity.

Mark Golden, CEO and founder of Golden Artist Col­ors said, “Our Mas­ter Teacher Pro­gram has been a great suc­cess, so we’re thrilled to cel­e­brate with an art open­ing for th­ese in­cred­i­ble lo­cal art teach­ers. None of this would have been pos­si­ble with­out the guid­ance and sup­port of our lo­cal BOCES or­ga­ni­za­tions, so we’re in­cred­i­bly grate­ful for all they’ve done for this pro­gram as well!”
