Santini is center’s artist of the month

Michael Santini is the October artist-in-residence at the Cedarburg Cultural Center.

Santini describes his artwork as an allegorical portrayal of the constant spiritual and worldly struggle of good versus evil, with subtle and profound symbolism and inspired by the Bible.

His works include aspects of contemplation, choice and accountability, or political and religious strife as consistent themes.

Santini received his bachelor of arts degree from Salem College in West Virginia in 1968. His artwork has been exhibited for nearly 50 years in cities across the country, including Tucson, Ariz., Sante Fe, N.M., Staten Island, New York City, Chicago, Boston and Milwaukee, with his first international show taking place in Paris in 1975. 

He has won numerous awards, accepted many significant commissions and is widely published. 

He will demonstrate his art forms at the center from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Oct. 5 through 9, 12 through 14, 19 through 21 and 26 through 28.

He will also host a workshop, “Sky, Borders and Elements,” on Saturday, Oct. 22, when he will walk students through his process, providing individual instruction on techniques and color theory as they create an 11-by-14-inch painting.

Students will paint a veil, then draw in the border and elements for the composition, such as bells, keys, an oil can, apple, pear, egg and bird before painting the sky and clouds, then shift focus to the border and elements.
