ACTIVITIES AT THE MUSEUM 

FIGURE SESSIONS ON MONDAYS

Attendance at Open Studio sessions on Monday nights has been very low during the last several months. Much of this can probably be attributed to the pandemic. While it is not meant to be a revenue generator for the museum, it is helpful to at least have enough participation that we are able to break even after paying the model. We believe figure drawing is a foundational part of artistic development and continue to be committed to providing this opportunity to the MA group. However, low attendance coupled with a staffing shortage during the next few months and the unpredictability of COVID–19 as we approach another winter has led us to decide to take a little break from figure sessions at TAM through at least May. In the meantime, if you have any suggestions on how we can improve the figure session experience for you, please don’t hesitate to contact us.  


VIRTUAL ARTalk

SUZE WOOLF ~ STATE OF THE FOREST: FROM PRETTY LANDSCAPES TO BURNED TREES
Friday, March 25, 2022 at 12 pm

Join State of the Forest artist Suze Woolf for an engaging presentation on how and why she went from painting pretty landscapes to burned trees on fabric.

Based on Woolf’s paintings of burned trees across western North America, State of the Forest is an immersive exhibit comprised of 30 portraits of burned trees that have been digitally transferred onto fabric and suspended from the ceiling. The installation is currently being showcased at The Art Museum of Eastern Idaho (TAM) through April 2, 2022.

We are grateful for Sarah Freeman's willingness to present her demo, originally scheduled for last spring, virtually!  She did such an amazing job with her pysanky demo (a traditional Ukrainian craft that involves wax relief egg dying). Below is the recording for those who missed it.
