Current Events with Ampersand Artists: Upcoming Workshops

The Encaustic Center in Richardson, TX, with Bonnie Leibowitz is holding a Mixed Media and Surfaces Workshop Friday May 29th - Sunday May 31st 2015, 10:00 to 4:00 each day.
This process oriented workshop will focus on a variety of techniques and materials which can integrate with one another allowing for a broader and more confident way of approaching your work whether you normally work in acrylic or oil.

Ellen Koment & Franciso Benitez will be teaching a three day encaustic workshop, May 22-24 in Santa Fe, New Mexico on Fusing Ancient and Contemporary.  As different as each of their approaches are, technically, and as different as their paintings are, they each turn to the real world as a resource and inspiration..be it from the figure or the landscape. Each appreciates the beauty and versatility of the medium.


Ann Ranlett, California Scratchbord artist, will be teaching several new workshops this spring.  Ann was recently featured as an artist on Artsy Shark, a company devoted to helping artists develop their own business.  Click on each link below for more details:

Ampersand Stockists in Germany

Ampersand has had some international dealers for quite some time in Germany, Austria and Australia, and now in the U.K.  

To give our German audience a closer look at the stores around their country, I've listed them all below.

You can also see the list of stores on our website or through our distributor in Europe at Art Select, where you can read more about Ampersand panels.  Many of these stockists ship both nationally and internationally, and all of them have websites where you can read more about our products in German.  Not all of these stores carry the full line of Ampersand panels, so check with a store beforehand to make sure they carry the boards you prefer before visiting in person.

We have 13 dealers in Germany including:

Ampersand hat schon seit einiger Zeit internationale Händler in Deutschland, Österreich und jetzt in Großbritannien.

Ich habe unsere Geschäfte in Deutschland aufgelistet, um unser deutsches Publikum die Möglichkeit zu bieten sie noch genauer anzusehen.

Boesner -Frankfurt
Sie können eine Liste unsere Geschäfte auf unsere Homepage anschauen. Sie können diese Liste auch von unserem Händler in Europa Art Select bekommen. Dort können Sie mehr über unsere Ampersand Tafeln lesen. Viele diese Händler versenden bundesweit und international, und jeder hat eine Webseite wo Sie mehr über unsere Produkte auf deutsch erfahren können. Nicht jedes Geschäft hat unsere ganze Linie Ampersand Tafeln auf  Lager. Deshalb sollten Sie vorher das Geschäft erfragen, ob sie die Tafeln, die Sie benötigen führen.

Wir haben 13 Händler in Deutschland:

·      Boesner mit 9 Standorte: Augsburg, Bad Reichenhall, Forstinning, Frankfurt, Karlsruhe, Leinfelden-Echterdingen, Mutterstadt, Nürnberg und Perl-Besch

Featured Artist: David Joyner

David Joyner
Manatee Motherhood, 18" x 24", acrylic on Hardbord
Self-taught, Florida artist David Joyner began his art journey through drawing and a profound belief from his mother that he could be an artist.  David grew up drawing, finding companionship in pencil and paper.  It wasn't until 2013, however, that he came to painting, entering Jerry's Artarama and purchasing the basics.

Catching on quickly, David realized he need professional grade supplies.  "As for the surface, I was sold on Ampersand from the very beginning. There was no canvas to stretch, so I am able to dedicate more of my time to painting. I love using the cradled panels so that I am able to wrap the paintings around the edges. This sets me apart from other artists. For someone who knew absolutely nothing about painting, Ampersand made learning much easier," he shares.  David uses both Hardbord and Aquabord and encourages new artists to experiment to find their preferred panel type.


The Three Musketeers, 12" x 24", acrylic on Hardbord
David currently runs a full time bread distributorship and paints when he has free time, among being a husband and a father of two.  You can find more of his work on:  davidjoynerartist.com
