Artist Nura Petrov Workshop: Kinetic Memory & Walks as Art 

 July 7, 2018

12:30 pm-2:30 pm

 $15 general; $8 students

Walk the Raymond Farm landscape with Nura Petrov.  Participants in Nura’s workshop will have the opportunity to investigate drawing as a means of recording experience and invoking kinetic memory. Instead of relying on traditional pictorial illusion, lines and shapes realized in the process of going for a walk will become the substance of the work. The resulting charts/diagrams of individual experiences will be superimposed on each other to create a communal art work, each thread gaining importance as it relates to the whole, becoming in the process a visual object beyond the walk itself.

Sketching supplies and paper will be available to borrow, but visitors may bring their own. 

Nura Petrov: Ideas and Images in Conceptual Art: Utamaro Revisited

After the house tour, Nura will present a slide lecture and show original paintings and sculptures whose theme is a revisit to Utamaro’s work.  Kigawa Utamaro was an 18th century Japanese artist whose woodcut prints were a source of inspiration to many western artists including Toulouse Lautrec and Mary Cassatt.

Expelled from home by war, persecution, failed governance or natural disaster, refugees flee toward safety with few possessions and little protection from the elements.

This presentation explores past and existing refugee shelters and camp environments from a design perspective, and ideas for improved prospects.

Woodblock Printmaking Workshop 

 Sept 15, 2018

12:00-4:00pm

 $75 /  Ages 12+

This workshop will be led by Ananda Connolly, who will guide participants through the basics of relief printing. We will start with designing and drawing an image, continue with transferring the image to the wood block and carving to obtain contrasts, and finally to each participant printing their own miniature edition. Special attention will be placed on paper type and selection, equipment use, and hand printing. 

We will be using shina or birchwood blocks, water based inks, and Japanese wood cutting tools. Inspiration for image design can be drawn from the Raymond Farm itself, but participants are equally encouraged to use their own memories, drawings, and photographs. And, of course, you may take your artwork and tools home with you at the end of the workshop!
