    Works and Words: Mysterious Life of Objects III

    9 a.m. to 12 p.m.~ at Mariposa

    Art and Writing with Susan Brown and Patrice Pinette

    Art and Writing with Susan Brown and Patrice Pinette

    The following workshops are inspired by the art of Susan Prince Thompson (featured in our current exhibit, "Boundless"). Susan’s delight in things visual, tactile and verbal weaves throughout her works and words.

    Explore more than one art form, and find your creative process inspired and enlivened in new ways. Writing is nourished by visual images, and language can be a great source for visual artwork. Such cross-pollination also allows for transformation as both writers and artists discover new material and see their own work re-imagined in different forms. This is a wonderful way for participants (who have lots or little experience writing and/or making art) to jump in and experience for themselves the unique strengths of each form. These Works and Words workshops are about enjoying the discovery!

    Writing activities will offer opportunities for collaborative wordplay as well as for deepening individual work. Two and three-dimensional art will incorporate many of the materials Susan Thompson used. Art and writing will honor multi-cultural sources and feature surprising new connections.

    I think there is great mystery and power in the life of objects. ~ Susan Prince Thompson

    Mysterious Life of Objects III: Transforming found objects and composing found poems, we will reanimate that which outlived its prior purpose giving old texts and textiles another lease on life!
