Clayton Buchanan will demonstrate how nature inspires his work using pastels as his medium, on Thursday, April 11, 2013 from 6:30 – 8:30 pm at High Street School (behind the Congregational Church in South Glastonbury.)

Clayton’s works capture an “intrinsic mood, a fleeting moment of recognition when light gives birth to the poetry of color.” His pastel paintings are composed with layer upon layer of brilliant colors and energized strokes to enhance his visual imagery. He strives to paint the real world focusing on and highlighting the spontaneity and natural fit of colors and shapes to interpret his vision.

Represented in private and corporate collections from Rhinebeck, NY to Boston, Montreal and London, Clayton Buchanan has been commissioned for portraits throughout the Northeast and South.  He has been the recipient of numerous awards including Best in Show, Kent Art Association Spring Juried Show, 2012; Honor Award, Connecticut Pastel Society Annual Member Show, 2012; Edmond Tarbell Award, Guild of Boston Artists Annual Member Show, 2012; and Best in Show, Connecticut Pastel Society Annual Member Show, 2011.

Mr. Buchanan worked in the graphic arts field for 30 years prior to turning his attention to paint and sell his work full time.  He is a member of the Pastel Society of America; The Guild of Boston Artists; Connecticut Pastel Society; Kent Art Association, Kent, CT; and Orange County Art Federation, NY.
