Diana Coidan, a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America discovered pastels Diana Coidan, Pelican Patience, pastel, 34” x 25” years ago finding the medium to be expressive, offering rich color, variety, and immediacy to paint her award-winning pastels. Painting subject matter across the spectrum, Diana has won many awards throughout her career, at least eleven 1st and 2nd Place awards combined in juried exhibits both regionally and nationally. She recently won the Strathmore Award in NC State Pastel Exhibit at the Hickory Museum, NC State Fair Commissioner’s Choice Award in 2012 and First Place in 2014. She is juried into countless exhibits both regional and nationally. Diana Coidan resides in Raleigh. Cecilia Guitarte’s medium of choice is oil and over the years has built a reputation as one of the top realists in NC. Her clean graphic style with a keen eye for lighting nuances allows her to focus on everyday subjects and situations elevated to high art. Cecilia’s distinct detailed imagery stands apart and it’s no surprise she gets juried repeatedly into numerous shows including; Raleigh Fine Arts and the N.E.W Show and Contemporary South numerous times at VAE in Raleigh. She won 1st place in the 2012 Small Treasures exhibit at the Cary Gallery, has been juried into Durham Art Guild 3 consecutive years winning People’s Choice in 2014.

Conversations with Artists: with

Vicki Rees

How do you choose an original piece of art? Whether you are looking at a painting, photograph, or a piece of sculpture, try these tips.

Wrightsville Morning

Style is a matter of your personal taste. Are you a meat and potatoes person, or a world cuisine connoisseur? There are many styles to choose from, including realism, abstract, modern, surrealism, and contemporary. Don’t limit yourself: a piece of pop art can fit in to a split-level just as well as it does in a downtown condo.

Your preferred Subject might be determined by where you are placing the art. A landscape in the living room may be perfect while a peaceful still life feels right in your bedroom. Finally, Palette is the color scheme of the piece. Does it please you or do you simply hate the color yellow and would never consider a photograph of daffodils? A popular saying is that good art does not match your sofa. However, art that is right for you should make you happy every time you see it in your home. Don’t buy art because you want it to appreciate in value. Buy it because you value your appreciation of the artwork. Every month, Tipping Paint Artists share their thoughts and inspirations so that you can get to know us. We hope you enjoy these articles. Stop in and see us, we would love to meet you too!
