Invent your own object. Through the process of close looking and considering how things work, we will deconstruct an inanimate object and reconstruct it in a new way through drawing or painting.
Join New Hampshire artist Carly Glovinski for a series of unique drawing and painting workshops that foster creativity through the interplay of people and making. Openly explore a variety of conventional and unconventional media and subject matter inspired by Glovinski’s celebrated artistic practice through the dynamic topics introduced at each session.
Simultaneously featured in the new Maine Center for Contemporary Art’s 2016 Biennial, Carly Glovinski is the 2016 recipient of an Artist Advancement Grant from the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, recently did a residency at the Studios at MASS MoCA, and has a solo exhibition at Carroll and Sons Gallery in Boston this winter. Inspired by objects and notions from her childhood designed to help us understand our environment, Glovinski is known for her unique approach to recreating such objects as beach chairs, nature books, and gardening zone maps.
Explore the possibilities of how functional objects can themselves become armatures for drawings. Consider the function or change the function of the object by creating a new layer to its structure by drawing in, around, or through the object.
Using maps, geology texts, and field guides as sources, we will explore new ideas for approaches to landscape painting working with or inspired by materials designed to describe and categorize the physical world.
