Opening Reception: Katherine Bernhardt, Gold
2 – 4 PM
Opening reception for GOLD, an exhibition of new paintings by Katherine Bernhardt, on view in the Newmark Gallery March 23 - May 19, 2019.
As an artist, Bernhardt has explored several different themes, including super models, swatch watches, Moroccan carpets, fabric based collages, and currently, patterning every day objects, attesting to the symbols of our modern culture. She uses acrylic and spray paint to make her paintings and draws subject matter from objects of daily life, like runs to the corner deli, the fruit stand, the 99 cent store, and the Caribbean-African influence of the neighborhood of Flatbush, Brooklyn.
Join us on Saturday mornings for this popular workshop for young artists ages 5 - 12! Based on a weekly theme and inspired by artworks in the Sculpture & Architecture Park and Newmark Gallery, each workshop includes an outdoor adventure and a hands-on artmaking activity. Led by teaching artists, children are divided into two groups by age and participate in developmentally appropriate projects that encourage curiosity, experimentation, and creative thinking through a variety of materials and experiences.
