Fall Opening in the Sculpture + Architecture Park
4 – 6 PM
Celebrate the fall season at Art Omi! New installations in the Sculpture & Architecture Park, plus the opening of Statues, a solo exhibition by Francesca DiMattio in the Newmark Gallery.
Statues, a solo exhibition, presents selections from bodies of work ranging from 2015 - 2019. The works included probe perceptions of domesticity, presenting traditionally domestic forms and materials in novel and occasionally uncomfortable ways. By naming the exhibition “statues,” Dimattio seeks to highlight the representation of the figure, a consistent thread throughout the work.
Art Omi: Architecture presents an opening reception for the opening of InConstruction: Pedro y Juana, winner of MoMA PS1's Young Architects Program 2019. Also opening that day, RRRolling Stones by HANNAH, a moveable outdoor seating system made from 3D-printed concrete. RRRolling Stones was commissioned by Socrates Sculpture Park and the Architectural League of New York. RRRolling Stones was the winner of Folly / Function, an annual juried competition challenging architects to design and build a large- scale project at Socrates Sculpture Park.

In this course we will build expressive drawing skills using the landscape and sculpture at Art Omi as reference and inspiration. Using a range of media including charcoal, pencil, ink, and pastel we will explore fundamental 2 dimensional art principles such as perspective, value, form and texture. Expanding our understanding of observational drawing, we will experiment with scale, format, and subject matter in order to find unique modes of personal expression. Our studio time will consist of quick sketches and drawing games, viewing work by contemporary and historical artists, and extended individual projects throughout the sculpture park. Materials included in tuition fee. No experience necessary! For teens age 12 - 16.
