Foiled Again Workshop + Appetite Pop-up Exhibit
May 7, 2017 at 3:30 pm–5:30 pmFree
THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT!
Join us for “Foiled Again”, a free hands-on workshop for ages 14+ and adults. Taught by Appetite artist Catherine Bertulli. Learn how to construct with super strong yet lightweight industrial grade aluminum foil. Build your own tower alone or with a partner. We’ll learn some simple techniques for connecting shapes and painting them with acrylic.
See HERE for another ArtWeek event associated with the pop-up art installation Appetite, featuring work by Adria Arch, Patti Brady, and Catherine Bertulli. On-street parking. Follow the lawn signs to the exhibit space.
About Appetite: “Appetite” is a four day pop up exhibit of painting and sculpture by three women artists whose work, as the title suggests, expresses desire and craving, humor, a taste for art making that is not easily satiated and the pleasure of indulging in the splendor of color, texture and pattern.
Boston artist Catherine Bertulli’s monumental towers of industrial grade aluminum foil are impressive illusions, shimmering columns of gold, turquoise and other brilliant tints. Boston artist Adria Arch’s palette confesses her interest in forcing the unexpected through experimentation–freezing a mark in time and then responding to it, and intuitively combining fields of color with shapes and patterns. Patti Brady, based in South Carolina, slips a barb (sometimes literally) into her otherwise ornate, decorative layers of patterns atop Plexiglas and bits of mirror.
