For this show three artist have created works using their own interpretation of the same species of birds. Dianna Ammons Johnson expresses her passion for birds through her photography.  Bonnie Clymer began to experiment with combining gold leaf and oil painting while and discovered that a gold leaf background placed emphasis on the shape and texture of the image it surrounded. Michael Morse is a folk artist who uses driftwood, glass, found objects and a sense of humor to create three dimensional pieces.  Birds are a favorite subject and many of the natural items used often have bird-like qualities.

Landscape Painting and the Environment with David Kaarsemaker

$500.00

This workshop will combine art history with art making, exploring how landscape painting in Western art reflects the complicated relationship between humans and the environment. This course will focus in particular on changes in the conception of depth in painting and how this corresponds with the increasing separation between subject and object in Western thought more generally. We will explore ways of extending and flattening illusory space, working in a range of media (acrylic paint, charcoal, ink, pastels...) and from a variety of subjects, including collage, hand-made models, and plein air observation. We will consider the mystical space of Byzantine Icons, the development of linear perspective in the Renaissance, the concept of the Sublime in Romanticism and Modernism, and the fragmentation of space throughout the 20th century.
