About the Artist/Workshops:

Mary Anna Goetz was born in Oklahoma City where she began her art studies as a pupil of her well-known artist parents, Richard and Edith Goetz. After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Oklahoma City University, Goetz furthered her studies at the Malden Bridge School of Art; Cape School of Art in Provincetown, MA; and The New York Academy of Art. For four decades Goetz has painted her environs (Oklahoma, New York City, Cape Cod and Woodstock) with a heavily impastoed technique in an impressionist/tonalist style.  Goetz’s work is held in numerous corporate and private collections including: Union Pacific, the Union League Club, NYC, White and Case and the Professional Golf Association (PGA).  Her paintings have been exhibited in solo exhibitions at galleries throughout the country including Grand Central Art Galleries, New York, Newman Galleries, Philadelphia, the James Cox Gallery at Woodstock, and Howell Gallery, Oklahoma City.  Goetz maintains an active teaching schedule and has served on the faculty of the Woodstock School of Art.

Creekside Painting in the Catskills, Plein Air Workshop. Students will have the opportunity to capture the serene beauty of the Esopus Creek, as it winds along the Emerson Resort & Spa. The workshop will begin with a morning demonstration by instructor Mary Anna Goetz. This session will guide the class through Goetz’s process…beginning with a grisaille, or value painting, followed by application of color.  Students will then begin creating their own compositions, based on Goetz’s plein air approach. Emphasis will be placed on establishing a strong composition and concentration on color and light.
