COME JOIN ME AT THE MENDOCINO ART CENTER IN MAY for

BEYOND THE FRAME: EXPANDED PAINTING, a 3 day workshop!

May 18–20, 2018 (Friday–Sunday, 9:30am–4:30pm)
SP18FA515 • All levels

CLASS DESCRIPTION
This workshop provides you with the opportunity to develop an interdisciplinary practice in relation and response to historical traditions and contemporary notions of painting. Mainstream history defines painting as a two dimensional plane concerned with surface and image. This convention will be used as a jumping off point as we address painting’s surface, structure, material specificity, context and placement. The focus of this class is to consider what a painting is, what it can be and to imagine its future as recent developments point to ever-expanding spatial and material freedoms.

Open assignments encourage students to explore their own material and conceptual interests. Work produced for this class can incorporate the use of traditional materials such as wood, canvas and paint and can extend to video, sculpture, installation, photography and performance. Lectures illustrated by slide presentations will look back to the “painters” of the late 1960s to the early 1970s who set the precedent for painting and mixed media approaches, including Lynda Benglis’ pour paintings, Howardena Pindell’s sculptural grids and Shigeko Kubota’s performance paintings. We will also examine contemporary artists Angela De La Cruz, Katharina Grosse, Jessica Stockholder, Dianna Molzan, Paul Kos and Linda Besemer among others. Readings will provide context for the critical discourse surrounding painting’s formal and conceptual evolution.

TAKEOVER

Alter Space Gallery, San Francisco, CA

TAKEOVER: San Francisco is a group exhibition featuring artwork by female and non-binary artists, in conjunction with the official release of TAKEOVER Art Zine, a publication organized by artist Serena Cole.

Initiated during the misogynist and xenophobic presidential campaign of Donald Trump, TAKEOVER Art Zine serves to rectify the ongoing lack of recognition for young female and gender non-binary artists in contemporary galleries, museums, and by art critics. The publication showcases outstanding contemporary artwork by female and genderqueer artists, and creates an opportunity to foster important conversations about what it means to be a female or non-binary artist in the context of a misogynistic political regime.

TAKEOVER zine is available at:
Takeover Art Zine
Little Paper Planes
Needles & Pens
Issues

Copies of the publication will also be available for purchase at the gallery.

The artists included in the exhibition are: Ace Lehner, Bean Gilsdorf, Bruna Massadas, Cate Nelson, Christina Empedocles, Danielle Lawrence, Elise Irving, Elizabeth Russell, Em Meine, Jamie Vasta, Julie Henson, Kate Nartker, Kim Bennett, Koak, Kristin Farr, Lana Licata, Leah Thomason Bromberg, Lukaza Branfman-Verissimo, Marci Washington, Mary Anne Kluth, Megan Reed, Melissa Dickenson, Mia Christopher, Rema Ghuloum, Sarah Thibault, Serena Cole, Sky Shapero, Sydney Cohen, Teresa Baker, Tracy Timmins.

About Abstraction: Bay Area Women Painters

Bedford Gallery at the Lesher Center for the Arts, Walnut Creek, CA

This show provides a platform for their work that features precise, powerful lines, as well as gestural patterns. These paintings suggest a kinship with the Abstract Expressionist movement of 1940s SoHo and San Francisco.

Participating Artists: Lorene Anderson, Eva Bovenzi, Donna Brookman, Heather Day, Amy Ellingson, Linda Geary, Rebekah Goldstein, Danielle Lawrence, Naomie Kremer, Michelle Mansour, Alicia McCarthy, Mel Prest, Cornelia Schulz, Ema Sintamarian, Michele Theberge, Canan Tolon.
