Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen: Vega Arts Workshop Series
April 3 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
When does imperfection become perfection? As part of Howl’s continuing Vega Arts Workshop Series, artist Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen engages participants in her Cut Work process, a freehand cutting technique developed by the artist as a way to explore our complex and ever-changing emotions. A contemplative process—with no expectations or fixed outcomes—workshop participants explore this free-flowing technique using mats, knives, and cardboard to create 3-D maps of their own imagination. The participant’s finished pieces are taken with them at the close of the workshop. No previous experience is required and all materials are provided. Workshop is recommended for ages 21 and over. Space is limited. All participants must register in advance at the link.
Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen’s exhibition, Cut Work, continues at the gallery through April 14, 2019.
About the Vega Arts Workshop Series
As part of its continuing commitment to the community, Howl! Happening: An Arturo Vega Project presents the free Vega Arts Workshop Series, an educational initiative designed to offer individuals access to the creative process and broaden opportunities to express themselves through the visual arts. Participants produce their own works of art through hands-on experiences with acclaimed artists working in varied disciplines.
Inspired by Arturo Vega’s legacy and spirit of generosity, openness, and forward thinking, the Vega Arts Workshop Series speaks to Howl! Happening’s mission by recognizing that making connections between people and art generates new ideas and activates our community, and that creative expression is a potent engine for change.
