Cyanotype Photographs with Madison Moore
Saturday, May 27, 12 to 3 p.m.
$40 per person
Create cyanotype photographs with Madison Moore, alumna
of the Main Street Arts artist residency program. Cyanotype is
a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print
after exposing photosensitive paper to light. Learn what materials
are used in this alternative photographic process and how to coat
and prepare the paper. Negatives will be produced from your images and you will create cyanotype photos from these negatives by placing them over the paper and exposing it to sunlight. Come prepared
with your own black and white images. All materials included.
Look No Further: Drawing from Within with Cathy Gordon
Saturday, June 10, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
$35 per person
Lead by Cathy Gordon, one of our resident artists for the month
of June, this process-centered workshop will focus on drawing
as a vehicle for creativity. Rather than focusing on “what you see”,
you will use charcoal and pastels to draw from your intuition and creativity. You will rely on value, contrast, line, and shape to create dynamic works on paper without representation. Use the skills
you learn in this workshop in your journals or sketchbooks.
All materials included.
Hieronymus Bosch, Touched by the Devil
Thursday, June 15, 7–9 p.m.
Join us for our first film screening of 2017. Hieronymus Bosch,
a late-medieval artist who died 500 years ago, caused an uproar
with his fantastical, violent, and utterly unique paintings detailing
the pleasures and pains of heaven and hell. In preparation for an exhibition in 2016, a team of Dutch art historians crisscrossed
the globe to unravel the secrets of his art. The experts shuttled between Den Bosch, Madrid and Venice, cutting their way through
the art world's tangle of red tape, resulting in the controversial
and extraordinary discovery of a lost Bosch painting.
4 ¼ x 3 ½: The Beauty of Small with Cathy Gordon
Saturday, June 17, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
$35 per person
This workshop, taught by Cathy Gordon, one of our resident artists
for the month of June, offers a contemporary twist to the long-standing tradition of miniature art. Let’s defy the notion that “bigger
is better” and create small works that demand attention. Using recycled Polaroid photographs we will use mixed media techniques such as layering, glazing and transfer to create diminutive works
of art. All materials provided.
An Evening with Nicholas Gurewitch
Thursday, June 29, 6 to 8 p.m. | Free
Join us for a closing celebration of Nick's exhibition, "A Little Death". Stop by and talk with Nick about his current project, "Notes on a Case of Melancholia, or a Little Death" and get a little insight into the mind
of the artist…as frightening as that might be!
