Golden Artist Colors has partnered with Delaware-Chenango-Madison-Otsego (DCMO) BOCES, Madison-Oneida and Herkimer County BOCES to host its second Master Teacher Art Exhibition.

The opening reception, which will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 17, in The Loft Gallery at Golden Artist Colors will feature artwork by 17 local art teachers who participated in the recent Master Teacher Program. The event, held at 188 Bell Rd., in New Berlin, is free and open to the public.

Golden Artist Colors partnered with DCMO, Madison-Oneida and Herkimer County BOCES in fall 2017 to offer two professional painting instruction courses for art teachers in the local community. The eight-week professional development program began in August and concluded late October. It was focused on helping participants explore a range of painting media and techniques to reinforce or establish their own voice.

The Master Teacher Program took place at the GOLDEN facility and was facilitated by professional artist Chelsea Gibson. Gibson has lived in Upstate New York since 2012, and works as a full-time fine artist, showing nationally. Her BFA is from the Rhode Island School of Design in Painting, and her MFA in Painting is from Boston University. Gibson values the importance of home, family, process, practice, and good food.
