Virtual Sketchbook Clinic: INSIDE OUT
Tuesday, January 19, 2021 - 12:00pm to 12:45pm
Museum of Art
Featuring work by Anna Held Audette & Louise Nevelson
Anna Held Audette (1938–2013) was a painter, printmaker, and photographer who has works in numerous collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the National Gallery. She was a Professor of Art at Southern Connecticut State University.
Louise Nevelson (1899–1988) was an American sculptor known for her monumental, monochromatic, wooden wall pieces and outdoor sculptures. A student of Hans Hofmann and Chaim Gross, Nevelson experimented with early conceptual art using found objects and dabbled in painting and printing before dedicating her lifework to sculpture. Usually created out of wood, her sculptures appear puzzle-like, with multiple intricately cut pieces placed into wall sculptures or independently standing pieces, often 3-D.
The Museum's Sketchbook Clinic is inspired by Toxic Youth, Dana Jennings’ ’80, an exhibit of expressive and raw sketchbook drawings done in ink, participants will harness the power of black and white to explore memory, dreams, historical or biographical events, and the formal elements of art. Weekly sessions include an introduction to artists' work from the Museum’s collection, thematic prompts, ample time to share your work with others, and an occasional guest artist.t.
