Artist to hold book signing

By Staff | Jul 13, 2017

LAHAINA – Village Gallery in Lahaina will host a book signing and painting demo with artist Darice Machel McGuire on July 14, during the Lahaina Second Friday Town Party, from 6 to 9 p.m. McGuire is co-author of the book “The Art Of Painting In Acrylic” published by Walter Foster Publishing.

The book features a range of techniques and valuable instruction for working with this classic medium. This comprehensive guide offers a fresh, modern approach to painting in acrylic and is ideal for beginning and intermediate artists seeking to develop or polish their acrylic painting skills, beginning with detailed information for using acrylic tools and materials. Topics include Color Theory, Basic Drawing, Painting Techniques, Still Lifes & Flowers, Landscapes, Seascapes, Portraits, and Animals/Pet Portraits.

McGuire said, “I am very excited to have the opportunity to present this book in my home town and continue to put my teachings into practice with local and visiting students.”

McGuire will do a demonstration of one of the techniques she shares in the book and will have all four of her paintings featured in the book on display and for sale.

Village Gallery is located at 120 Dickenson St. in Lahaina. For more information, contact Amanda at 661-4402.
