Meet the Artist

Art League of Leland’s January meeting features batik artist Mary Zlotnick.

Art League of Leland (ALL) invites artists and art enthusiasts to its Thursday, January 7, 2021, virtual meeting with artist Mary Zlotnick as its featured guest speaker.

Zlotnick will discuss batik, an Indonesian art form that dates back 2,000 years. She combines batik techniques to create her unique style of batik paintings. After working as a clay artist and teaching classes on the wheel, she tried batik, which uses fabric and melted wax applied with brushes. After the wax is applied, the cloth is immersed into dye; only the unwaxed areas and cracks in the wax accept dye. More recently, Zlotnick began creating silk paintings also using a resist technique.

Painter James Horton will be in the Member Spotlight and will share his award-winning artwork in a short presentation. Painting in a variety of media including oil, acrylic, gouache, graphite and ink, Horton enjoys capturing physical scenes in his artwork whether he is painting en plein air or in his studio.

Art League of Leland (ALL) has a mission to encourage, guide, support, inform and provide learning opportunities for area artists and advocates of the arts. ALL welcomes artists and art lovers not only from Leland but also from neighboring communities.
