Understanding Oil Opens in the Magnuson Park Gallery!

Understanding Oil, Fong Baatz’s Student Exhibition is on view from February 10 - March 1, 2024, in the Magnuson Park Gallery. This exhibition features students of all ages from Fong Baatz’s class, who have learned the foundations of oil painting through studies done from direct observation, such as still lifes.

These works vary in style and composition but are connected through the artists’ love of art and their shared mentor. Key elements that may be found across several pieces are techniques that Fong emphasizes, such as patchwork, subtle shifts in value and hue, and warm underpaintings left peeking through in the final results.

This show is produced by Chantelle Ma, Magnuson Park Gallery Intern. An oil painter and student of Fong Baatz, Chantelle has curated Understanding Oil to feature works made entirely by student artists of Fong Baatz.

Accompanying the artworks are flower arrangements provided by the Ikenobo Lake Washington Chapter.

Featured artists: Amy Xuan, Angelina Kam, Ariel Kam, Avery Mckay, Cecelia Wu, Celine Ao, Chantelle Ma, Chloe Pang, Christy Hao, Ellie Mu, Ethan Li, Gianna Zhan, Isabel Li, Jinhong (Anne) Wu, Jinze Lang, Madison Liu, Marina Hao, Stephanie Li, Thivia Mogan, and Varenna Ronald.

Join us for a Gallery Reception on February 17 from 1-4 PM.

Understanding Oil is on view February 10 - March 1 with special hours on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 12-3 PM, or by appointment. Visit The Magnuson Park Gallery in Building 30 West at Magnuson Park (7448 63rd Ave NE, Seattle WA 98125).
