Description:
Tracey Morgan Gallery is pleased to present Future Past: Experiments in Photography, a group exhibition of work from 15 artists, all of whom are working beyond the tradition notions of photography. Artists included are Matthew Brandt, Marco Breuer, Colby Caldwell, Bridget Conn, Ofri Cnaani, Bryan Graf, Sandi Haber Fifield, James Huckenpahler, Ivana Larrosa, Chris McCaw, Ben Nixon, Stacey Page, Dawn Roe, Nikko Sedgwick, and Lydia See. More than ever, the art world is seeing a shift in the way we perceive photographs. This exhibition is a small survey of contemporary photography’s return to hand crafted, unique (sometimes one of a kind) works of art. These artists are working beyond the camera, beyond the frame, beyond film, beyond the print. Chance serves as a dominant theme in both the process and the resulting works. We see artists not only using tools of digital manipulation, they are also altering the surface of their photographs with paint, thread, water, and other non traditional materials. We’re also seeing artists employ traditional photographic techniques, and even reconsidering ways in which these techniques can be utilized. The exhibition includes a survey of processes from photograms, cyanotypes to digital applications and 3-dimensional installations. Colby Caldwell uses the computer and one corrupt digital file transferred from Super 8 film to create vibrant grid-like images. James Huckenpahler utilizes computer software to create striking, figurative prints on aluminum. Ben Nixon constructs photograms, images made without the use of a camera, as does Bryan Graf, who uses a handheld flash and color gels to create his dream-like, large-scale photograms. Bridget Conn, also utilizing an alternative process, makes gestural chemigrams using photographic paper to make pieces based on line, shape, color, and textures rather than on photographic imagery from negatives. Ofri Cnaani and Dawn Roe also create cameraless works, and will be both exhibiting cyanotypes, with Roe creating a small scale installation. Matthew Brandt, who has used everything from peanut butter to cocaine in his photographs, will be exhibiting subtle, captivating works on handmade paper, silkscreened with charcoal from wood on the land which contains his subjects, trees. In his Sunburned series, Chris McCaw creates several-hour exposures, a process where the sun burns its path onto the light sensitive negative, moving beyond photography as merely a representation of reality. Several of the artists are working well beyond the photograph itself. Nikko Sedgwick begins with a photograph that he has loosened the chemistry from, resulting in distorted, whirling pieces that he then paints atop of. Lydia See and Stacey Page use thread and embroidery to activate their imagery, while Marco Breuer creates memorable graphic abstractions by burning, folding, embossing, scraping, and otherwise obstructing photo sensitive paper. Sandi Haber Fifield combines photographs with drawings on vellum resulting in intimate, atmospheric works that one looks at as well as through. Ivana Larrosa uses prints, hair, and various other materials to create 3-dimensional images. As one can imagine, the use of the hand goes well beyond expectation for a photographic exhibition.

Class is now full. To be put on the wait list please email your name, best phone number and email if other than the one you are using. Send request to [email protected] FIrst come first served. Three full days – May 3, 4, 5th from 10-4 Tuition: $425. Bring a $40 material fee payable to Michelle Belto the first day of class (cash or check) See Materials Info below. Must be aged 18 yrs or older. This workshop begins with creating richly textured collage materials through paste painting, distressing and aging, masking and lifting, ink sieve and patterning with innovative tools. Exercises to develop a personal compositional structure and experiments with a variety of support surfaces will provide a comfortable framework to begin with encaustic. Going beyond simple collage in wax, this workshop is designed to assist students in creating intricate and personally significant paintings, where mixed media choices as material and application become intuitive. Explore methods that can be used to create complexity, add interest and texture, and design with mystery and drama. Correct use and mixing of media with wax along with tips and suggestions for display and shipping will be discussed. The workshop is co-sponsored by R&F Paints. The versality of encaustic invites the use of mixed media materials and methods, while the natural luminosity and transparency of the paint allows for complex multi-layered work that speaks of time and memory. This workshop is appropriate for mixed media students with no prior encaustic experience. Experienced students will also find innovative approaches, materials and processes to move their work forward. Teacher Supplied Consumable Materials: $40 material fee ●Mixed media materials (common use) ●Glues, some papers, paste paint materials and coloring agents (common use) ●Encaustic medium, some pigmented wax and pigment sticks, encaustic gesso (students will take home approximately $100 of common and personal use materials) Student Supplied Materials: ●4-5 wood cradled panels (8”x10”-12”x12” No larger, please, based on space and materials limitations.) ●1 sheet of 300 lb. rough cold press watercolor paper ●Paper towels ●Found papers (old book pages, commercial printed tissue papers, printed napkins, papers from prior art, etc.) ●(Optional) Drawings, images or other papers that you might want to use in your work ●Favorite Encaustic Mixed Media Materials (Materials that you like to use in your encaustic work such as alcohol inks, Pan Pastels, oil pastels, permanent markers, transfer papers, tissue collage materials, foils and composition leaf, etc. Don’t buy anything you don’t have.

Asheville Gallery of Art May 2018 Show “Chasing the Light” “Chasing the Light” for May at Asheville Gallery of Art Asheville Gallery of Art’s May show, “Chasing the Light,” will feature the work of Joyce Schlapkohl who describes her style as, “painterly realism with a strong focal point.” The show runs May 1-31 during gallery hours, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1-4 p.m. Sunday. The gallery, located at 82 Patton Avenue in Asheville, across from Pritchard Park, will host a reception for the artist on Friday, May 4, from 5-8 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited to stop by. When the artist moved from Florida to her native North Carolina 19 years ago, she was a watercolor painter and teacher who was then known for her boats, seascapes, and florals. However, she switched to oils almost immediately to capture the local landscape, flowers, animals, and any subject that inspired her with strong light and shadow patterns. “While watercolor training still influences the way I see values, oils add freedom for creating texture and layering paint.” Her formal art training began after earning a Master’s Degree in Business. When a back injury sidelined her, she studied art at Florida Atlantic University and has continued taking workshops with nationally known teachers. “A wonderful part of painting is that you never stop learning and developing your eye for seeing regardless of the medium you use. I’m very fortunate to be able to paint full time. I’m very thankful that I love what I do and can share life’s beauty as I see it. Hopefully the local scenes will stir emotion for the viewer as they have inspired me.” The artist’s studio is in Waynesville, NC. You can find Joyce’s work at Asheville Gallery of Art, Seven Sisters Gallery in Black Mountain, and Twigs and Leaves Gallery in Waynesville. She is a Signature Member of the Watercolor Society of North Carolina. Her website is www.joycepaints.com and her e-mail is [email protected] Schlapkohl’s work, as well as the paintings of the other 30 gallery members will be on display and for sale through the month of May. For further information about this show, you can contact Asheville Gallery of Art at (828) 251-5796, visit the gallery website at www.ashevillegallery-of-art.com, or go to the gallery Facebook page.

What would Levittown look like as Pompeii? Discover how Scale Up artist, Adam Ledford answers this provocative question by creating a portrait of mid-century America through the recreation of objects with clay and charcoal drawings in his project, Don’t Worry About the Government. Ledford will discuss a visual reimagining of Levittown, an archetypal post-war suburb of Philadelphia, and how his work invites us to look at post-war America’s changing relationship with nature, work, and food as evidenced by the proliferation of home gadgets, convenience foods, and decoration. Adam Ledford, a ceramic artist based in Philadelphia, PA, is a 2012 Windgate Fellow and 2017 Project Grant recipient. This event is held in conjunction with the exhibition Scale Up: 10 Years, 10 Fellows, 10 Projects, on view January 19 - July 28, 2018 at the Center for Craft. http://www.craftcreativitydesign.org/scaleup/ Scale Up is curated and organized by the Center for Craft.

Even if you don't consider yourself an artist, certified Zentangle® teacher, Susan Goodman, will show you how to create beautiful abstract images using this fun, meditative process. Zentangle® is an easy-to-learn, relaxing way to turn structured patterns—called “tangles”—into tiny (3.5” x 3.5”) masterpieces that can, ultimately, be assembled into a larger mosaic. Susan will show you how to combine dots, lines, simple curves, S-curves, and orbs to create your first "tile(s)." By the end of the workshop, you will have learned at least four basic tangles, the strokes necessary to make them, and how to add shading to bring your pictures to life!
