Pop Art in Practice: The Collage of Rosalyn Drexler

March 27, 2017
4–7p

$10; free to members

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE WORKSHOP IS FULL. WE ARE NO LONGER TAKING REGISTRATIONS.

Local artist and educator Maria Ojascastro will facilitate a collage-making workshop inspired by the exhibition Rosalyn Drexler: Who Does She Think She Is? Drexler earned critical acclaim in the early 1960s for her visually arresting paintings in which she cut out and painted over figures from movie posters, newspapers, and advertisements, setting them against vivid backgrounds suggestive of color field painting. After a tour of the exhibition led by Allison Taylor, head of education and community engagement, at 4p, participants will create their own collages using similar techniques.

Materials and light snacks will be provided. Space is limited, registration required.
