Shape: In tango there is the gancho, boleo, secada, barrida, colgada, ocho, parada and volcada, to name a few. Color: The costumes in dance are works of art in their own right: Colorful, flowing, beautiful. Balance: One of the critical skills of a good dancer is their ability to turn on one foot and perform other moves without relying upon their partner for support. Rhythm: Well, if you can’t keep rhythm with the music, dancing may not be for you! Space: Correct spacing is critical. Too close to your partner or another couple and you bump into each other. Too far from your partner and you lose connection. Variety: Nobody wants to see or even dance the same moves all night. Followers and audiences enjoy being surprised. Form: Posture is critical. Lunges must have only one leg bent or the dancer looks like they are squatting. Toes should point to elongate the legs. Unity and Harmony: The couple needs to move together as one unit. Contrast: Varity of speed, intensity, and height improve the dance quality. Area of interest: Both partners need to look at and have their upper bodies “flashlight” toward each other, not only for appearances, but to keep a connection with one another in order to dance in unity.

    President’s Message

    Line: As you will see, tango in particular has beautiful lines.

    Shape: In tango there is the gancho, boleo, secada, barrida, colgada, ocho,

    parada and volcada, to name a few.

    Color: The costumes in dance are works of art in their own right: Colorful,

    flowing, beautiful.

    Balance: One of the critical skills of a good dancer is their ability to turn on

    one foot and perform other moves without relying upon their partner for

    support.

    Rhythm: Well, if you can’t keep rhythm with the music, dancing may not be

    for you!

    Space: Correct spacing is critical. Too close to your partner or another

    couple and you bump into each other. Too far from your partner and you

    lose connection.

    Variety: Nobody wants to see or even dance the same moves all night.

    Followers and audiences enjoy being surprised.

    Form: Posture is critical. Lunges must have only one leg bent or the dancer

    looks like they are squatting. Toes should point to elongate the legs.

    Unity and Harmony: The couple needs to move together as one unit.

    Contrast: Varity of speed, intensity, and height improve the dance quality.

    Area of interest: Both partners need to look at and have their upper bodies

    “flashlight” toward each other, not only for appearances, but to keep a

    connection with one another in order to dance in unity.

    UWS Paint Spot September/October 2018

    I have always wanted to marry my

    two loves together: Dance and Art.

    For our September meeting I invited

    my Argentine Tango friends to come

    and perform for UWS. This is a photo

    op, or if you are a fast sketcher, a

    drawing and or painting opportunity.

    I feel that performing arts and visual

    arts have all the same elements. So

    putting the two together is very

    exciting. Here is such a list of art

    elements and how I see them as they

    pertain to Argentine tango.

    As Anne of Green Gables might say,

    both art and dance are very

    “romantical”. I hope this experiment

    goes well and that both dancers and

    artists have a great experience!

    October Member Meeting

    UWS partnered with Red Butte Gardens

    this summer for a marvelous meld of

    botanical inspiration. 85 entries from 57

    artists, some entering a show for their first

    time, transformed the foyer with color and

    style. Since Red Butte Gardens is a

    popular attraction in Salt Lake City,

    visitation to the UWS show was high,

    raising awareness of UWS, watercolor as

    a medium and resulting in 36 sales

    overall. Thanks to all who helped make it

    happen and all who participated in this

    exciting event!

    Based in Central

    California, Frank Eber is

    a plein air

    artist continuing in the

    tradition of the 20th

    century California Barbizon

    movement. His body of

    work inspires an emotional

    response to Nature,

    resulting in timeless,

    enduring artwork.

    A closer look reveals subtlety in color, poetic impressions, and serene

    beauty. “I am very conscious of my edges and never say ‘too much’. I think

    it is important to leave some mystery, some room for imagination. When

    you look at the finished piece, it is remarkable what you think you see that

    is not really there! For me, that is one of the most beautiful things about

    painting in watercolor!” Conveying atmosphere is Frank’s specialty. In fact,

    it is the basis of all his work and teaching. Frank currently focuses on

    watercolor and oils.

    Definitely a painter’s painter, Frank Eber works in a direct,

    loose style influenced by the Old World masters. Typical in his art

    are color mixes and light that evoke nostalgia while remaining

    absolutely in the present. Frank’s watercolor workshops reach

    beyond technique, encouraging individual expression and

    observing the elusive balance of forces that create beauty in

    painting. The techniques you will learn in Frank’s workshops

    transcend the watercolor medium, as they, acrylics, tempera,

    pastels.

    Frank Eber Workshop

    Grand by Frank Eber

    ARTIST’S STATEMENT:

    "Painting should go deeper than copying nature as it is. It should be a personal response and a characterization of

    what is before us and in harmony with it. I try to understand a scene, but not intellectually. I can paint it how it is, that’s

    easy. The interpretation of the thing that’s underneath–what gives it life–I’d like to find. The energy that makes it. In

    essence I am trying to paint what cannot be painted.”

    Please joins us for our Fall Workshop with a Nationally Known Artist. Franks Ebers personal style and eagerness to

    work with each student is certain to create a memorable workshop experience.

    Questions: Linda Flannery, workshop coordinator.

    News From the North – UWS Cache Valley Chapter (CVC)

    9

    What a wonderful experience to step out of our

    comfort zone to try something new; to push the

    envelope a little bit. Reaching into new mediums

    apart from watercolor has allowed me to continue

    working on the principles of color, value choice, and

    composition while also helping me see things in a

    new way. I’ve found it interesting that letting myself

    take turns away from watercolor has actually

    enhanced my experience as both a watercolorist

    and overall artist.

    Oh, all of these thoughts being shared by someone

    who does not have an art degree but is through

    Greetings from Cache Valley!

    This year I am looking forward to becoming

    more acquainted with each other as we push

    ourselves to try a little harder and be a little

    more present in the moment of our individual

    creative path. That’s what drew me to this

    association in the beginning and what keeps

    me here now—finding this bond with other

    people of such diverse backgrounds and

    training as we all try to grow wherever we

    are. It is an honor to be on this path with you

    all!

    Leisa Firth

    fabulous workshops and rubbing shoulders with other creative souls. It is a

    joyful journey to discover my voice despite not having the traditional training

    I feel like I missed out on. It’s never too late to learn new skills and find new

    passions

    Tracks by Leisa Firth

    If you feel like you are spending hours at a time in the same place, doing

    the same thing and in the very same way – open your mind to something

    new!
