When I have a brush in my hand while painting a set for a theatre production... there's no need to focus too close on every little stroke of paint because the eye won’t perceive them as mistakes from 30 feet away.
While the summer months are ticking away, time feels like it’s flying because of all the exciting programs the Woodson Art Museum has to offer.
I am always eager to create at the Museum when there’s a chance to explore my favorite artistic medium: collage.
Artist Paul Rhymer may not want praise, but he deserves it. His talent, warmth, and skill are matched only by his modesty…. maybe his height, too. The list is long of “Rhymer reasons” behind Paul’s recognition as the Woodson Art Museum’s 2023 Master Wildlife Artist.
As Jake (my husband) and I are planning for a year full of new, challenging, and rewarding experiences with Moose (our new rescue puppy), I’m also preparing for plenty of new experiences at the Woodson Art Museum.
The Driftless area in southwestern Wisconsin makes for a picturesque setting to spend the holidays and serves as a backdrop for visiting artist artist S.V. (Sue) Medaris, who shares relief-printing insights during programs this week.
The process of hands-on learning and art making with an artist like Tom Hill is an experience that leaves a huge impact on the minds of young creators.
Next week, sculptor Tom Hill returns to the Woodson Art Museum for a multi-week residency, and he’d like to work with you! Tom invites visitors and community members to create wire birds, which will comprise a large flock, reflecting the impact of creative collaboration.
I can’t resist a good opportunity for a pun. Iconic and revolutionary hip-hop artists, the Wu-Tang Clan shaped their genre and used the written word to write and re-shape the legacy of East-Coast rap. I’m a fan of artists Jiangmei Wu and Robert J. Lang (hence “Wu-Lang Clan”), both featured in Above the Fold and both visiting the Woodson Art Museum and kicking off 2020 in innovative and grand style.
This weekend, January 18-19, the Woodson Art Museum hosts origami artist Jiangmei Wu and snow sculptors as they work wonders with paper and snow. These artists’ transformations are magical. Whether you visit to marvel at their results or satisfy your curiosity about the artists’ tools and techniques, inspiration and insights are in store.
