Join us as artist Nadine Mahoney presents a lecture and workshop sponsored by Liquitex. She will deliver a talk on the history of pigments, development of acrylics and how materials shape artists’ practice, followed by a painting demonstration focusing on a new innovation from Liquitex: Heavy Body Cadmium-Free. These colors are the world’s first non-cadmium acrylic paint with the same brightness, color strength and opacity as cadmium paint, offering artists a safer option in their practice.

Residency Unlimited invites art students and painters of all experience levels to take part in this artist-led educational program, with the opportunity to experiment with new materials. Following Mahoney’s lecture and demonstration there will be a Q&A and hands-on session where guests are invited to try Liquitex Cadmium-Free and take home a gift bag, including a tube of the new paint.
