Mixed Media to 3-D Floral Art

One-day workshop.

Pulling inspiration from the DAM's collections, we'll first be creating collages interpreting artworks by form and color as 2-D maps. The next step will be using wire, middollino and yarn to create flexible armatures as bases to add our fresh materials to. Third, we'll be using our collages as a map of placement, form and line in our finished floral designs.

This will be a very freeform knowledge sharing experience, suitable to beginners or advanced floral designers. The approach is very out of the box, breaking down an existing artwork into shapes and colors, then recreating a mixed media 3-d version with fresh floral elements. We'll go over flower care and handling, mechanics and various applicable philosophies of floral design.

Materials: All floral materials will be provided by the educator and are reflected in the $75 materials fee associated with this class. Students should bring clippers, scissors, and old magazines.

Educator: Arthur Williams AIFD, EMC, CFD, CPF, https://www.arthurwilliamsflowerart.com https://www.babylonfloral.com

Additional Notes: All floral materials will be provided by the educator and are reflected in the $75 materials fee associated with this class.

Place, Memory, and Gender in The Middle East with artist Hangama Amiri

Originally from Afghanistan, Hangama Amiri works primarily in textile to create images that reflect her own observations of displacement, diaspora culture, and women in Afghanistan and the region. She holds an MFA from Yale University and currently works in New Haven, CT, USA. A new body of work by Amiri is currently on view at the David B. Smith gallery through June 18th.

For the first time in Denver, Hangama Amiri will discuss her artistic practice that explores how everyday objects and spaces are imbued with cultural memories and histories. This will be followed by a presentation from Karuna Srikureja, Interpretive Specialist of Asia, Africa, and Oceania at the Denver Art Museum, who will discuss the thematic ties between some objects in the museum’s collection in relation to Amiri’s artworks. Professor Azita Ranjbar, Associate Professor of Women & Gender Studies at the University of Colorado, Boulder, will touch upon women’s rights in the Middle East.

The program will conclude in a Q&A with Hangama Amiri and panelists, Karuna Srikureja and Professor Ranjbar, led by Arianna Flory, Curatorial Assistant at Large at the Denver Art Museum.

Through Another Lens: Georgia O'Keeffe's Photography

The pathbreaking artist Georgia O’Keeffe (1887–1986) is revered for her iconic paintings of flowers, skyscrapers, animal skulls, and Southwestern landscapes. Her photographic work, however, has not been explored in depth until now. This exhibition is the first major investigation of O’Keeffe’s photography and traces the artist’s thirty-year exploration of the medium.

Join exhibition curator Lisa Volpe as she will discuss O’Keeffe’s relationship to photography, her personal use of the medium, the research that brought these images to light, and the discoveries still waiting to be made.
