The South Boston Artists Association monthly meeting will feature New England painter, Thomas Dunlay, on Saturday, May 11, at the Curley Center (L St. Bathhouse), on Day Boulevard, M Street entrance at 9:30 a.m.
Dunlay has been painting Boston and New England treasures for 30 years. First introduced as a child to painting by his father, Dunlay chose painting as his career, studying under Robert Douglas Hunter in Boston and Provincetown, then with R. H. Ives Gammell, Hunter’s primary teacher.? Dunlay credits his father’s interest in art and an early visit to the MFA as major influences in his choice of career. He also cites Frank Benson, Childe Hassam, and Edmund Tarbell as inspirations in his art.
On Saturday, weather permitting, Dunlay will demonstrate au plein painting, as he does a portrait of his daughter on the M Street Beach.
The meeting and presentation are free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
