Watercolor demonstration at Island Gallery West

This is an example of a watercolor by Douglas Teller, who will demonstrate his painting technique at Island Gallery West on Jan. 15.

Douglas Teller will demonstrate watercolor painting in the Island Gallery West of Holmes Beach from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Jan. 15.

Teller was born in Battle Creek, Mich., received a BA from Western Michigan Univeristy, studied painting and art history at Michigan State Univeristy and taught at public schools while studying art history and archaeology at the Catholic University of America. The urge to do studio work prompted a transfer to George Washington University, where he received an MFA, and he began teaching there in 1962. He achieved Professor Emeritus status at GWU after 35 years of teaching design, printmaking and watercolor painting.

He has traveled extensively in Europe, South America, and the U.S. and has taught workshops abroad and in the U.S. His home is in Sarasota, and he is an active member of the Florida Suncoast Watercolor Society, the Florida Watercolor Society, the Florida Artist’s Guild and the Southern Watercolor Society and is listed in Who’s Who in American Art.

The Gallery, a cooperative of nearly 30 local artists, is located at 5368 Gulf Drive, Holmes Beach. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday-Saturday. Telephone: 941-778-6648.
