MARCH 3, 10, 17, 24 (make-up, if needed: March 31)—Thursdays, 6:30–8:30pm

In this four-class series, explore the power of memory and how to utilize photography and printmaking to create calls to the significant ties in our lives. Inspired by Robert Rauschenberg’s Ruminations series (on view now in the Ruminations on Memory exhibition), guest artist Liz Williams will demonstrate a variety of ways to use collage, printmaking, and alternative photography techniques. Techniques will include monoprints with gelli plates and image transfers with gel medium, blender pens, transfer paper, and wax paper. Class time includes exhibition visits, presentations, discussions, group shares, and critiques; individual preparation between classes includes taking and printing photographs in response to prompts. Although class projects will be analog, Liz will demonstrate how to create digital collages.

Instructor Liz Williams has worked as a visual artist for ten years, exploring the line between the real and fantastic elements of life in the South in a variety of mediums including photography and illustration. Her work ranges from t-shirt designs calling for the dismantling of anti-LGBTQ legislation for Equality NC to portraits of nationally acclaimed musicians to animations of family cats. In 2019, she joined Campaign for Southern Equality as the Artist in Residence and moved on to become the Program Manager for CSE’s Southern Equality Studios (SES), a project that explores how the arts can be a catalyst and force in achieving lived and legal LGBTQ equality across the South. Liz has also served as Revolve Gallery’s First Draft Artist in Residence and created the series “2020 Visions,” which created narratives for Southern queer artists who created work during Covid quarantine. Through her work with SES, Liz has recently become the recipient of the Tzedek Impact Award and Center for Crafts’ Craft Futures Fund.
