SCOTCH PLAINS-FANWOOD, NJ - Cynthia Weiss is a painter and book artist. She does work on paper and is a printmaker. Her work is mostly about landscape and the spirit within. Paintings and prints include both grand vistas and simple trees. Cynthia’s love of nature comes from being born and raised on a dairy farm in Southern New Hampshire. Landscape is part of her inner being. “My work evolves from living, drawing, sketching, photographing and painting in the landscape. These works are both landscapes and abstractions of landscapes which represent my personal vision.”

Cynthia’s demonstration on Feb. 9 will be about working with matte acrylic gouache. She will also speak about her experience working as a book artist. Her art and books will be on display and she will have a hands-on workshop segment where everyone can participate. The meeting will start at 1 p.m.

In January of 2014 the Scotch Plains Fanwood Arts Association moved to a new location and time. They meet the second Sunday of each month from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Scotch Hills Country Club, 820 Jerusalem Road, Scotch Plains.

The Scotch Plains Fanwood Arts Association is a group of fine artists, crafters, photographers and sculptors forming a social group to express and enjoy their talents. All are welcome who want to use their creative skills to share, appreciate and grow with others. A main goal of the Scotch Plains Fanwood Arts Association is the integration of the arts into daily life. We strive to achieve this through informative demonstrations, discussions and group trips.
