Turkish Paper Marbling Demonstration at Dedham Square Artist Guild

Turkish Paper Marbling Demo
Wednesday, September 16th 1pm to 6:30pm for a FREE demonstration by John C. Bielik.


Paper marbling is the art or process of staining paper with paint or ink. Turkish marbling uses
finely ground pigments in water as its paint. A strong association exists between books and
marbling, due to the long history they share. Many historical pattern examples survive today
because of the protection afforded between the covers of old books.

About the Artist - John C. Bielik is an itinerant artisan, instructor, and historic trades interpreter. Creative influences have been through experiences as a teacher, student, graphic designer, and artist. John combines these experiences with an interest in history and the historic trades of papermaking, bookbinding, and paper marbling. John's paper and products are featured in the shops at Colonial Williamsburg, as well as other retail venues. John is from Shelbyville, Missouri, He will be demonstrating in Dedham at the Guild and then the Big E.

** Please note this event will be held outside in front of the Guild, weather permitting. Please check our facebook page for updates.

Opening Reception, Matt Miller, Faces

Join us on Friday September 11 from 6pm to 8pm for an opening 
reception for Guild Artist of the Month, Matt Miller.

Matt Miller started drawing at an early age and was often seen with pencil, pen, or charcoal in hand. He took several drawing classes at this time, however as he grew and adulthood came upon him, a long hiatus in his art took place. Later, as an accomplished adult, he took up drawing and oil painting with renewed zeal, studying with several skilled local artists, taking classes at a number of local studios and the Rhode Island School of Design. He came across the artwork of David Leffel and became heavily influenced by his work, working with and attending numerous training sessions over the next few years with Mr. Leffel and his wife Sherrie McGraw in California and in Taos NM.

I have always been fascinated by people. I started drawing and painting 
people when I was about 12. And as much as I love still life painting, 
I always come back to painting people. In particular I am fascinated by 
people's faces, their expressions, the glint in their eyes, and the 
experiences expressed by the wear of weather and etched line. I am 
blessed to have worked with a master painter to help realize the skills 
necessary to share my vision with you. - Matt Miller
