Rising Tides-Live Painting Demo-BoJu Art

Live fluid acrylic paint pouring demonstration and Q&A with internationally known fluid artist Shaylen Amanda Broughton. Watch the artist develop a new piece of work live in the gallery. Broughton is a BOJUart gallery artist and has her work on display at the gallery.

Through Abstract expression, Broughton's work explores the depths of human awareness; Particularly, she works to convey the relationship between emotional memory [in which we find significance], and the physical world [in which we find presence]. Her fluid process allows her to let go of expectations and connect with intuition in order to express purely from the heart.

She carries the energy of life into her work by adding a small amount of water gathered from a natural water source: river, ocean, stream, pond or lake. Additionally, she moves the paint with air (an air gun or her breath) and fire (a torch) to add texture.

The gallery and artist will take every precaution during the demo to avoid paint spatter on observer, but please dress appropriately.

Shaylen Amanda Broughton
Broughton was born and raised in Richmond, Virginia which is also where she currently works and resides. She obtained her Bachelor of Fine Art from The Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in 2011. Her artistic ambition, however, began long before college and is also her current livelihood; pulsating in the plethora of artwork on canvas. Formally taught by her Grandmother Grace, who was a professional portrait artist, Broughton went on to excel in the arts throughout grade school and beyond. A post-college career in Hospitality Design taught her business sense, enhanced her work ethic, and reiterated personal values which nudged her in another direction.

In March 2014, Broughton began her career as a visual artist. She has exhibited in several group and solo shows in the US, as well as in the UK and Australia. In addition to exhibiting her work, Broughton works with several non-profits in Richmond VA, leading community art projects such as large-scale interior murals and after-school art programs.

BOJUart donates a portion of each piece sold to this artist’s cause the Chesapeake Bay Foundation to "Save the Bay™," a regional rallying cry for pollution reduction throughout the Chesapeake's six-state, 64,000-square-mile watershed, which is home to more than 18 million people and 3,000 species of plants and animals.

Rising Tides-Walker Gallery

  • Walker Fine Arts Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

“This series “Rising Tides” is an expression of the rising divine feminine (Mother Earth)  energy within us all. We live in a time where the world is full of disconnect and fear. We can heal our collective pain and the damage we have done to our planet if we connect with love and trust our intuition. These paintings were made as I connected fully with the energy of love. Each painting named after a Goddess to represent different aspects of feminine energy.  My hope in sharing them is that they will evoke a sense of peace, tranquility, and joy to the viewers ultimately inspiring others to connect with the divine energy of love. .”

The Rising Tides series is now on view at Walker Gallery at Patrick Henry Community College in Martinsville VA. The Artist’s Talk will be held February 14th at 1:00pm
