Massillon-based painter and teacher Frank Dale is a modern practitioner and master, in his own right, of a very old oil painting method, known as the Flemish technique, originally perfected by Renaissance masters, such as Jan Van Eyck, and flourishing well into the 17th century. The method is based upon accumulated, thinly-applied paint glazes of varying transparencies to achieve lustrous colors and startling naturalism. In 1991, after painstakingly researching and formulating a workable system of reproducing the technique, Dale began teaching it to his private students with stunning results.
Along with several works by Dale, the exhibit will feature paintings by 22 of his accomplished students. They are: Cynthia Capestrain, Megan Farabee, Kathy Israel, Nick Jessup, Jack Keeliher, Deborah Kohler, Mary Lange, Pam LaRocco, Kit Lupsor, Jen Madaffer, Nicole Miller, Myrna Myllius, Erin Mulligan, Tricia Oyster, Jyodi Patel, Jake Rinkes, Debra Thompson, Dan Wilkey, Christine Williams, Lisa Woods, Kris Wyler and Kirsten Zirngibl. Most of the displayed pieces are for sale.
