Dacia Gallery: Is pleased to announce Byzantium to the Renaissance: Egg Tempera and Gold Gilding Workshop in New York City. This workshop is intended as an introduction and revival of the centuries old tempera painting and gold gilding techniques for modern painters. To inspire and create stunning modern paintings with the knowledge, materials and techniques of the Byzantine and Renaissance masters. Students will learn to paint in egg tempera and water gild 24K gold leaf with centuries old Byzantine techniques and secrets of the renaissance master painters, from Duccio and Giotto to Simone Martini and Fra Angelico. Specific images have been selected to paint for this project that each student will be able to learn the most techniques from. Including painting the face, garments, decorative gilded backgrounds and applying 24K gold leaf. The workshop is planned that each student will be able to complete a finished painting. Additionally, Dacia Gallery will host a group exhibition of your artwork created during the program, including a reception and artist talk to the public. Your time is meant to be productive, illuminating and memorable.

Invitation to Artists: The Byzantium to the Renaissance Workshop is open to all visual artists, from the beginner, who is seeking to develop basic skills, to the advanced artist who may be interested in insights into the instructor’s approach and practices. National and international artists are invited to attend, including anyone interested in learning more about Medieval and Byzantine art. This is an unique painting technique that was primarily used during the renaissance and previous centuries. It has a wide array of applications to contemporary artists, by learning these ancient techniques to create some visually stunning paintings that are not seen today. If you are interested in participating register today.

Making Your Own Tempera Paint: During the workshop students will learn to make their own egg tempera paints from scratch. By learning the properties and chemistry of pigments, grinding and mixing pigments, applying the egg yolk with distilled water and white wine as a binder, you will make your own paint just like the old masters. No modern store bought paints will equal the vibrancy, beauty and quality of the paints you will learn to make yourself.

Water Gilding 24K Gold Leaf: During the workshop students will learn how to achieve a mirror finish shine to their gold leafed paintings. The process is called Water Gilding, it requires a marble gessoed background on a wood panel on which you apply red clay bole mixed with rabbit skin glue. The clay bole dries, is sanded and polished with an agate stone burnisher. Then solution of distilled water and denatured alcohol is applied on top and the 24K Gold Leaf is placed on the wet areas, it will immediately stick to the bole. Once dried the gold leaf is burnished to a mirror like, perfect finish. Water Gilding is a unique process used by the masters that gives a beautiful finish to backgrounds or to decorative elements in paintings. You will be amazed at the possibilities of the work you can create once you learn how to properly water gild with gold.

Eligibility:

NYC ARTISTS:

Art in Res is now accepting alpha artists for its 2019 Alpha.

Get art out of your studio and into the homes of potential buyers.

We are an invite only platform featuring a curated roster of NYC based artists.  Read below and apply

1. Upload your art.

Give your art exposure to new vetted collectors. Art in Res is a network of art enthusiasts.

2. Arrange a rental.

Collectors will send a rental request, and you get to choose the details, accept or reject.

3. Hand off / Studio visit.

Invite your new collector to see your space and get to know each other, or a simple hand-off.

4. Collectors can buy.

If the collector buys your work, you keep 100%. Since we get asked all the time: yes, we're serious.

Get paid for your art.

On Art in Res, collectors can request to borrow original works of art from NYC-based artists. If the collector doesn't buy your work, you get paid a rental fee. If the collector buys your work, you keep 100%. Since we get asked all the time: yes, we're serious.

Get $15 for each piece you rent, per month.

The platform for studio visits.

Art in Res want you to meet collectors who are passionate about your work. We think the studio visit is the perfect opportunity to do that. We are a platform for building offline collector-artist relationships, not just another impersonal online art marketplace.

Studio visits are a great way for collectors to learn about your work, your process, and see your work in the live, too. And by the way, if a collector happens to buy anything directly from you during a studio visit (either a work you listed on Art in Res or one you haven't), we think that's awesome. You don't have to tell us if that happens, but we'd love to hear about it!

Complete control for artists.

We are serious about artist autonomy. Want to sell your artwork under a pseudonym, or just use your initials? You can do that. Need a particular piece for an upcoming show? There's no obligation to accept a rental request.

Want to deliver your works? You set your own delivery fee, and keep 100% of that, too. Don't want to deliver your works? No problem.
