We are excited to have Stuart Shils back teaching an online drawiing seminar for us that is called "Reframing the Ordinary"
A seminar exploring the possibility of locating yourself graphically in the moment.Go Here to see more: www.concordart.org
Friday, Saturday & Sunday, June 19 – 21, from 10am - 1:00pm and following the class, a 30-minute meeting/conversation with each participant at a time convenient for each person.

These three lively mornings will explore the relationship between drawing and observation, examining how close and clarified observation can hone our visually analytical minds, regardless of what it is we are looking at.
Each day will begin with either a slide talk or a guided conversation exploring issues like:
visual confidence
the meaning of simplification
the shaping and reshaping expectations
where to begin and how to begin
what matters on paper.
Followed by a sequence of guided exercises intended as tools for carrying back to your workaday studio lives.
This is not about recipes nor techniques but rather, addressing the evolution and structure of your own visual literacy.
Materials will be pencils and paper and a few other materials for collage, etc, that will be provided by the teacher in advance.

Thank you ARTSCOPE MAGAZINE for this nice review of Concord Art's current exhibition, 'unfoldingobject' on view until August 11 in the Main Galleries at Concord Art.

“Unfoldingobject,” an exhibition curated by Todd Bartel that’s on view through August 11 at the Concord Center for the Visual Arts in Concord, Massachusetts, sets out to break and reinvent the boundaries of collage. In this review on Artscope Online, Artscope’s J. Fatima Martins writes that the Concord Art show, that includes, amongst many, works by Allan Bealy, Antonio Frappa, Luciana Frigerio, Ginnie Gardiner, Kerith Lisi, Jack Massy, Maureen McCabe, Talin Megherian, Gerri Rachins and Peter Thomashow, that “achieves its goal of teaching us the complex nature of collage art and how diverse it can be. From simple cut paper on flat surface to ceiling-mounted cut out sculpture compositions, collage is an intellectual concept as well as a practical process that is utilized in all art and is fundamental to how artists create.” Read it now: https://artscopemagazine.com/category/artscope-online/
