Behind the Canvas: Leif Nilsson

February 24

Experience a unique series of four programs with award-winning Maritime Gallery artists in the beautiful setting of the Maritime Gallery on the banks of the Mystic River. Hear their personal stories on how to create a work of art through lectures, slide presentations, and live demonstrations. Learn what inspires their creativity from sketch to finished masterwork. Discover what art collectors today look for in a painting – whether for personal enjoyment or investment.

On February 24, Leif Nilsson: In the Moment…

Leif will use photos and videos to guide us through the different stages of development in creating his paintings. He will explain the process of setting up and working on them in various locations from on his boat on the CT river to his garden in Chester. Enjoy anecdotal tales if his interesting encounters from those and other more exotic locales.
