Please join UUCP on Wednesday, June 12th at 7:00 PM for our “Artists On Their Art” series. We are pleased to have four very accomplished guests for our series: Deborah Singer Pires, Judith Bellini, Micki Shilan and Irene Kremen.

There will be time after for questions, discussion and some refreshments. We look forward to seeing you!

Deborah Singer Pires – Deborah Singer Pires has been painting watercolors for 15 years as a hobby while a professor of English at a community college. She has experimented with several styles of watercolor but all have been representational or impressionistic. She has won several awards for her paintings.

Judith Bellini – Judith Bellini, Teaneck artist has studied with New York abstract expressionist artists Gerry Samuels and Bruce Dorfman at the Art Center of Northern New Jersey and the Art Students League in New York City. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Education from the University of Hawaii and a Master of Fine Arts degree from Hunter College. She has exhibited in 18 group shows and has had ten solo shows in New Jersey galleries. In 2004 and 2005, she was awarded first prize in the Bergen County Senior competition for professional oil painting and in 2017, her landscapes were added to the permanent collection of Hackensack University Medical Center.

Micki Shilan – Micki returned to her love of drawing and painting 10 years ago, when she found out that she could take lessons at the Senior Center in Teaneck. Micki first started with pencil drawing and then continued with charcoal. Then she tried watercolor. Next was pastel chalk. It wasn’t until she found pastel pencils that Micki was able to draw and color and felt that she found her love. Micki has entered art contests and 3 years ago one of her paintings won first place for Bergen County Seniors and was sent to the State Senior Contest in Trenton. She did not win but someone bought her drawing. A second drawing was also bought by someone from the UUCP.

Irene Kremen – The topic of Irene’s art is “East vs. West”; comparing Chinese brush painting and English watercolor painting. Materials and techniques used in each will be described and presented and paintings of both styles will be exhibited.
