Art Omi Staff Show
Art Omi announces the Art Omi Staff Show, an exhibition of artwork made by members of its staff and those working behind the scenes at Art Omi.
Exhibition viewing hours are Saturdays and Sundays from 11 am to 4 pm. Visitors must wear masks or face-coverings, and maintain social distance during their visit. A maximum of eight viewers at a time will be permitted in the Newmark Gallery. No registration is required.
In addition to Art Omi’s work of supporting artists through its residency, exhibitions, and education programs, the organization also employs a large number of professional working artists to support these activities. This exhibition draws together artworks created by members of all of Art Omi’s departments, from Facilities to Education to Development, and more. The artworks employ a wide range of materials and techniques, and include painting, photography, and sculpture.
The Art Omi Staff Show includes artwork by: Jeremy Adams, Ruth Adams, Ever Baldwin, David Bodhi Boylan, Mark Colyer, Matt Crane, Ramiro Davaro-Comas, John DeSousa, Katya Harris, Sandra Koponen, Alon Koppel, Grace Lang, Jeffrey Lependorf, Cotter Luppi, cassandra massa, Catherine McTague, Hayley O'Brien, Alex Parrasch, Sasha Sicurella, Teddy Vermylen, Melissa Weaver, and Bryan Zimmerman.

Open Figure Drawing for Adults gathers Monday and Wednesday evenings to sketch, draw, and render from a live model. Open to artists of all skill levels ages 16+, each two-hour sessions is self-guided and intended to provide time and space for members of our local community to share in the exploration of this traditional art practice. Please note that pre-registration is required.
What can we do when one page isn’t enough for a work of art? How do we define book art and what possibilities does this creative process present? This class will focus on creating one-of-a-kind artist books. Students will have a chance to create one or multiple books using collected mementos such as ticket stubs, hand-written notes, scraps of wrapping paper or old photographs as well as original works on paper. They will be introduced to simple bookbinding techniques and different book forms. We will consider the importance of page sequence and how pairing certain works together can alter how we experience the individual pieces. Students will repurpose old drawings and collages and use text, images, and patterns from vintage magazines to create new artworks, poems, and stories. Students will see how a seemingly random collection of papers can come together to tell a personal story. There are no limits as to what students can create! Materials will be provided, but students are also encouraged to collect materials they would like to include.
