Share by Email
Time: 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Date: through
Location: Durango Arts Center - Educ Studio
Price: $330 DAC Members / $370 General + 35 Materials Fee
Category: Educational
Students will combine photography and photo-based processes with different materials to build unique mixed media works in this short, weekend workshop. Working with transfers, water-based paints and adhesives, laser and ink jet prints, and any found or made material, students will incorporate a series of materials into their collages. They will prepare paintings as backgrounds to adhere photographs, drawings, paintings and just about any collage material they can come up with. Techniques taught will include polymer transfers, the use of water based paints, correct gluing techniques, substrates and composing and building an image.

Holly Roberts born in Santa Fe, New Mexico, earned an MFA from Arizona State University. Tempe, in 1981. Her pieces are nationally and internationally exhibited and have been published in three monographs. She has twice received National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships. She currently lives and works in Corrales, New Mexico with her husband, Robert Wilson. Roberts works intuitively, painting an abstract painting on a panel before applying her signature photo fragments. She uses muted colors of paint and black-and-white photographs to create images that are filled with humor, irony and mythology. Her metamorphic beings illustrate archetypal emotional or dream states, although her subject matter has expanded from the internal to a wider worldview, touching on religion, technology and the environment. Roberts art is bold, a bit brash and almost always irreverent. Her work can be found on her website: www.hollyrobertsstudio.com
