You are invited to a presentation by Texas artist Michael Holter. Mr. Holter that takes place February 6th, from 6:45 – 9:00 pm at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center in Denton, TX. Mr. Holter works in both watercolor and oil.
Michael says, “I think of my work as impressionistic. I like to represent people or places and allow the painting to evolve from the structure of what is recognizable. The challenge is to balance the care needed to make the representation interesting? and perhaps believable, with the freedom, looseness and painterly quality that makes painting so unique and expressive.” “I have been influenced by artists such as Charles Reid, Richard Schmid, Burt Silverman, Frank Webb, John Singer Sargent, Ted Nuttall and many others. Even though I have an art degree, most of what I put into practice is self-taught through studying the work of these distinguished artists and much painting.”
Michael Holter’s art has received numerous awards and recognition and can be found in private and corporate collections in the US and several foreign countries. Although Michael has been painting most of his life, his work experience spans a wide range of creative endeavors, from art teacher, creative director and businessman in fine art and commercial art. Michael has also owned and operated two galleries and holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Art Education and an MA in Visual Communication.
He is a signature member of The National Watercolor Society, The Transparent Watercolor Society of America, The Outdoor Painter Society, the Southwestern Watercolor Society, The Society of Watercolor Artists, American Watercolor Society, the Portrait Society of America and the American Impressionist Society.
