This Friday the creative studio broke into two groups. One group went on inspirational walk while the rest of the team worked on thier work in progress pieces.
On our walk we Venture into the unity shop explored all the treasures to be had and did some sketching. Then we walked over to the Sullivan Goss gallery. The curator Jeremy was nice enough to give us an impromptu talk about some of the art and the artists. We discussed what makes a work of art a success. A particularly interesting piece of work was Stone and Crab Claw by Howard Warshaw. We discussed surrealism and what the difference between surrealism and photorealism. Jeremy mentioned a quote: “As beautiful as the chance encounter of a sewing machine & an umbrealla on an operating table” -Lautreamont.
While the rest of the team was out, some of our participants worked on their pieces for our March exhibition. Many of them are working in mixed media, using a variety of supplies we have stalked in the studio workspace. One student is working on a piece utilizing unconventional materials, and another is creating a photo series with lager than life illustrations. both students are utilizing our partnership with art from scrap. Others worked on their sketch inspirations for their paintings and created digital artworks to be printed for the show.
