Mariam Paré Exhibit

Mariam is a visual artist, mouth painter, speaker & advocate for people with spinal cord injury. “My artistic interests are constantly morphing as I like to experiment with traditional oil painting and modern mixed media techniques.

Through art I have immense freedom.”

Abstraction with Mary Michelson

Do you find yourself attracted to abstract art but don’t understand the process? It might interest you to know that ‘abstract’ can be used as a verb, as in ‘to abstract’. Essentially it means ‘to remove’. In these workshops, each artist will learn to make such choices as what they will remove and what they will keep from a photograph they select. Artists will consider how they may want to vary the composition from the original. Come with an open mind & your own photograph that you might want to use. Supply list given at registration. $65/70 (member/non-member)

Start: August 26, 2017 10:00 am
End: August 26, 2017 2:00 pm
Venue: McCord Gallery
