Yellow House Artists is a group of oil pastel artists who promote both their art and the medium. These artists have been painting together at the Fine Line Creative Arts Center in St. Charles or the DuPage Art League in Wheaton with artists and teachers George Shipperley, Carol Zack and George Bruce.
The group originated with 17 oil pastel artists who had a gallery in a yellow house during the 2007 St. Charles Fine Art Show. The group has since grown to include 49 members who are interested in creating and showing their work, as well as informing the public about the qualities of this little-known medium.
Members of Yellow House Artists use unique techniques developed by their instructors, taking advantage of the special qualities of the medium.
More information about the group and the medium can be found on the website, www.yellowhouseartists.com.
