We strive to offer creative, stimulating events to complement our exhibitions. There might be a gallery talk by an exhibiting artist, our curator or a docent; or a workshop in our art studio; perhaps an exhibition-related lecture, such as when we explored bonsai, ikebana, sushi and saki and the tea ceremony during a kimono exhibit; or when Gee’s Bend quilters performed gospel music, conducted quilting workshops and took the first stitches in a community quilt.

Painting with Fiber Workshop  at the Art Museum

Sunday March 5, 2023 2-4 p.m.

$15 for members | $20 for non-members

“I find freedom in exploring in new ways and I like to use play and experimentation to entice my subconscious to take the lead in my paintings.  Working in fibers has been a large part of my recent process. I invite you to join me in this workshop to paint with fibers using, paint, yarn, remnants and beads to explore the subconscious. We will create by collaging  tactile elements on boards using various fibrous materials to tease out new ideas in painting and explore space through relief on a two-dimensional surface. If you have some small elements you would like to include, please feel free to bring along for this two-hour journey.” – Randi Reiss-McCormack
