Let’s study how to paint shiny surfaces…  silver, glass, chrome…  It’s always fun to see the surface of an object come to life on the page.  Jeannie will help you see and translate paint on paper into the illusion of shine.  A design and photo reference will be provided, but students may use their own photo, if desired.

California Farmland Exhibition

featured at

Tony Segale’s Double Dip Gallery

Throughout the month of June

Waking up at the same time as the sun rises its head from its night of rest, prepared to brighten the day of those in need of its light. Readying yourself for the day with a shower and cup of joe to keep your legs moving and your eyes open, you walk outside to work the land. The seeds you have sown have grown into little sprouts of what’s to come, the hay you have stacked glistens in the distance like a golden mirage. The sky begins to refine its self from a night of dark blue to a tinge of pinks and oranges while the clouds appear as giant cotton candy, until the sun is fully risen and the light and bright blue of the day have finally made their way to the forefront. How lucky you are! How amazing a farmland can be! The perfect backdrop that leaves you thinking how could something be so purely beautiful in a world of trouble and need. Appreciate our California Farmland for what it is, which is simple and unadulterated. An artist can not help ones self from wanting to master and recreate such an image to be viewed by those who may not know the wonderful scene we get to wake up to in our beautiful town, or just as a reminder on your wall that no matter what life throws at you, there is still beauty all around.

 

We know you miss them…

Brush Lettering with Tony Segale

Brush Lettering With Tony Segale

June 14-16, 2016

Three- day workshop (tues,wed,thurs) from 9:00am-4:00pm

at Tony Segale’s Double Dip Gallery

Located at 222 W. Pine Street, Lodi CA

$250.00 unless you bring a friend and then you both get 10% off!

Participants in this workshop will learn how to handle a brush for lettering, and develop the skills to render the three basic lettering styles – sans serif, roman and script. After practice and understanding of ‘swinging the brush’, we will use that skill in the painting of a watercolor.
Tony will demonstrate and then you can paint, with plenty of time for individual guidance. We will explore color, technique, value and design principals. At the end of our day we will review the finer points of our paintings, and leave the enemies at the gate.

If you have an interest in this workshop or know someone who would benefit from learning the stroke of the hand then please contact us at either tony@tonysegale.com or come into the gallery located at 222 W. Pine Street, Lodi CA.

Art & Community

 

20160508_144956-1-1[1]
com·mu·ni·ty, kəˈmyo͞onədē/, noun
  1. a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals.
    ————————————————-
       Lodi is know for many things, one of which is our strong sense of community. With about 60,000 people that can get almost anywhere in town on Lodi Avenue, it’s easy to be close with your neighbors. A visitor to the gallery from out of the area had mentioned, “you can’t find places like this anymore”, and that’s something Lodians can really take pride in.
     The definition of community mentions “a sharing of common goals”; some of Lodi’s most evident common goals can be seen all through out the town. Lodi is a beautiful city, and its because of the care of our community. The first thing one will notice upon entering our town is the abundance of greenery. Our fertile landscape is perfectly adorned with all kinds of shapes and colors that mother nature provides. The preservation of our oldest buildings is another characteristic of Lodi. A quick drive through downtown can give you a glimpse into the past.
     Double Dip Gallery’s newest exhibit, “Ten Years After, the Walldogs”, is about the weekend ten years ago where a group of passionate artists gathered in Lodi to paint historically themed murals. This movement was brought to our quaint little town by Double Dip Gallery’s owner and creator, Tony Segale. He knew this was exactly what Lodi needed and used it as an opportunity to illustrate Lodi’s history. These murals brought beauty to our downtown area and strengthened our sense of community.
     It’s good to take pride in an accomplishment. The city of Lodi has accomplished becoming a beautiful, welcoming tourist destination for visitors and a place to call home for its residents.
————————————————-
Double Dip Gallery is located at 222 W. Pine Street in downtown Lodi. We’re open from noon until 9 p.m., everyday. We invite you to come view our newest exhibit, “Ten Years After, the Walldogs”. If you’re already a resident of livable, lovable Lodi, you’ll find a new appreciation for the artwork you pass by everyday. If you’re a visitor to Lodi, we want to welcome you into our community and show you what makes Lodi so great. 

New Hours & New Exhibit (how exciting!)

Double Dip Gallery has the best customers, hands down. You demanded and we listened – we will be open noon to 9 p.m., 7 days a week until September! That means there’s a whole extra hour every day for you to come say hi, enjoy Tony Segale’s fine art, and try some of Gunther’s delicious ice cream, no excuses.:)

With the passing of April showers and the beginning of May flowers, we also get to introduce a new art exhibit in the gallery. The new exhibit, “Ten Years After, the Walldogs”, pays homage to the Walldogs, a group of highly skilled sign painters and mural artists from all over the globe. Tony will be showcasing the art he’s done in the form of murals and signs all over Lodi, from concept sketch to finished product. Be sure to stop by for May’s First Friday Art Hop on May 6 to see the new exhibit.

To learn more about the Walldogs and their movement, check out their website http://thewalldogs.com/, or come in and ask Tony Segale, our resident Walldog.
