Continuing on our journey into photographic processes we take a look at mordançage, a specialized method used by Kristoffer Johnson in #TheNational. See how science and art come together in this post.
Second Saturday Studio: Catching Light
We’re shifting our #saturdaystudio schedule to coincide with Second Saturday Family Tours at #fwmoa! Join us at #fwmoa in the morning, then come home and make art inspired by something you saw. Today, we're inspired by glass artist Hiroshi Yamano.
Art Term Tuesday: Vitreography
Known for his pioneering work in the studio glass movement, Harvey Littleton forged a connection between glass and printmaking by creating an alternative process using glass as the matrix: vitreography. Learn more about it in this #arttermtuesday!
Art Term Tuesday: Archival Pigment & Silver Gelatin Prints
Museum language can be cryptic. Today, we decode the meanings behind "silver gelatin print" and "archival pigment print", two photographic processes whose final products are on display in "The National: Best Contemporary Photography 2022".
Saturday Studio: Moody Masks
In the spirit of Halloween, we in the #fwmoa #studio are thinking about the idea of transformation and disguise. We created our own mask inspired by Karl Zerbe's Girl with Blue Mask. Will your mask be happy or sad? Strange or spooky?
Art Term Tuesday: Proportion & Scale
We continue our exploration of the principles of art with a duo: proportion and scale. See how artists use both terms within the artwork and through the artwork itself.
Saturday Studio: Go with the Flow
Today in the #studio we felt like staying in the lines, so we went to look at Susan Janow's exhibition, now on display at #fwmoa, to get inspired by grids!
Art Term Tuesday: Millefleur
Discover millefleur, French for "a thousand flowers", an artwork that features a background of...take a guess...various small flowers and plants! Why would an artist choose this background? Read on learn more!
Saturday Studio: Square Up
Looking to add some (pumpkin) spice to your fall photos? Inspired by the artists featured in "The National", we decided to see how changing the box, from rectangular to square, would change our photos in this #saturdaystudio.
Saturday Studio: Cryptic Treasures
Today in the #studio we're cleaning up! Inspired by Louise Nevelson and her use of found objects, we dug through our trove of things to create mystery "treasure boxes" like the ones collected by Dorothy Gillespie. See how here:
