The Dedham Art Association is holding an art demonstration on Tuesday

DEDHAM, MA – The Dedham Art Association will host a demonstration by artist Paula Metcalf Lazar on the use of wax and oil paint at its meeting on Tuesday, March 8.

The event will be held at 7 p.m. at Endicott Estate as well as virtually on Zoom. There is no fee for members and $5 for guests.

Originally from Pennsylvania, Lazar has devoted much of his life to the pursuit of art. She studied at Smith College and the University of Kansas and participated in Mass Art and numerous workshops across the country. She also worked as a social worker for Belmont Public Schools.

“I love exploring the elegance and form of everyday objects and I’m particularly drawn to the natural world,” she said. “My aim is to reveal the hidden beauty of the commonplace while focusing on the dimensions of color and light in oil and watercolor.

“More recently I have explored oil, cold wax and pigment sticks on paper and board,” she continued. “This led to a new focus on landscapes and abstractions.”

Lazar currently teaches at Eliot School in Jamaica Plain. It is owned by the Jamaica Plain Art Association and Roslindale Open Studios. His work has been featured in several venues, including the Copley Society of Art and the Bromfield Gallery.

Guests are invited to participate by sending an RSVP email through this link. Lazar’s work can be seen at its website.
