Spectrums Within Under Our Skin-Detail-Holly Wilson-2m

Rural | Urban Invitational Art Exhibit II, The Volland Store

“Rural” and “Urban” are defined by the current address of each artist, but the artist’s current address does not necessarily indicate their origins. Once the artists are selected, the discovery begins:  where did they grow up?  what were the influences that led them to become artists?  how are their early experiences revealed in their work today?  or are they?  This is the fun of the exhibition.  Join us in the journey, and learn each artist’s story.

Throughout the exhibit, we will look at the lives of these artists, their life’s work today, and the ways in which Rural and Urban are alike, unique, and significant.

 

Closing Reception | March 1, 2020

Artist Panel at 2 pm

Spectrums Within Under Our Skin-Holly Wilson-2m
Spectrums Within Under Our Skin

Spectrums Within Under Our Skin is 144 girls made from Crayola Crayon. There are 12 different girls, each girl is made from the 12 colors I see when I look at the color spectrum. I wish we could see the light within us all and the variations that make each of us that light passing through a prism showing the many spectrums within us all. We are more than a classification in terms of a position between two extremes, we are all the colors and an untold number of possibilities.

Finding Form, Encaustic in the Third Dimension

Teaching this summer at Idyllwild Summer Arts in Idyllwild California 
Finding Form, Encaustic in the Third Dimension
By Holly Wilson
June 27 – July 1, 2022

Colored wax on a flat surface is just the beginning! We are going to look at materials and form to bring your ideas to life, allowing you to create fascinating structures that leave the two-dimensional plane.

Material is an important part of our visual language, so you will want to carefully choose the materials you wish to speak with. Along with your ideas, you will bring a variety of materials including wood, cardboard, metal, fired clay pieces, dried plasterwork, fiber, string, paper, objects from nature, or treasures you have held onto (a complete list of suggestions to follow). You will learn interesting ways to weave these objects into your work.

Experiment with how the materials may be dipped, painted, wired, glued, hammered, but most of all, waxed. You will start by making your own encaustic medium with pigment application. Encaustic is a wax-based paint composed of beeswax, resin, and pigment, which is kept liquid on a heated palette, and then applied to an absorbent surface. In addition to safety practices, you will learn a range of techniques including fusing, using transparencies, glazing, layering, building up texture, line making, carving, image transfer, mold making, and resin application with different surfaces. Returning students will learn new methods and may choose to work on advanced projects.

Skill Level: All levels
Tuition: $755
Lab Fee: $120 – This workshop’s $120 lab fee includes encaustic wax, pigments, two wood panels, art resin, and the use of propane torches, an alcohol lamp, and two metal tools. You will be asked to bring additional materials.
Materials List: Coming Soon
Enrollment limited to 8 students
