Opening Reception: Katherine Bernhardt, Gold
2 – 4 PM
Opening reception for GOLD, an exhibition of new paintings by Katherine Bernhardt, on view in the Newmark Gallery March 23 - May 19, 2019.
As an artist, Bernhardt has explored several different themes, including super models, swatch watches, Moroccan carpets, fabric based collages, and currently, patterning every day objects, attesting to the symbols of our modern culture. She uses acrylic and spray paint to make her paintings and draws subject matter from objects of daily life, like runs to the corner deli, the fruit stand, the 99 cent store, and the Caribbean-African influence of the neighborhood of Flatbush, Brooklyn.
Our Summer Series Saturday Workshops run every weekend through August 31st! This year, teaching artist Dorothea Osborn will lead kids in an ongoing collaborative sculpture project that will progress over the course of the summer. Drop-in any weekend to be a part of this large-scale building experience!
NO CLASS AUGUST 22 OR SEPTEMBER 12.
Gather in the Newmark Gallery on Thursday evenings to sketch, draw, and render from a live male or female nude model. Open to artists of all skill levels ages 16+, each two-hour sessions is self-guided and intended to provide time and space for members of our local community to share in the exploration of this traditional art practice.
