Pomerene Center for the Arts

Pomerene Center for the Arts Founded in 1984 with a mission to promote community involvement in the arts
Through involvement in the arts as creators, performers, and audience members, we believe a community can find new ways of coming together - new opportunities to imagine and create a vision for the future - new ways to appreciate our shared cultural heritage as well as our individuality.
(18)

The Pomerene Center for the Arts is housed in the Johnson-Humrickhouse Home built in 1836 by Anna (nee Johnson) and George Silliman. George was a well-traveled attorney who had seen the splendid homes of the South as well as the classic architecture of Europe while serving as US ambassador to Spain. His knowledge of and interest in architectural design was reflected in the construction of his home, currently listed on the National Historic Register as a premier example of Greek Revival architecture. Their only son having preceded them in death, the Sillimans left the property to Anna’s siblings, four of whom had married into the Humrickhouse family (thus the elided name). With encouragement from estate executer Warner Pomerene, two Johnson Brothers left the house and their extensive collections of Asian and Native American art and artifacts to what is now the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum in Roscoe Village. The house was in extreme disrepair and was eventually restored by Lora and Warner Pomerene who lived in the house until the early1980’s. In keeping with the generosity of the Johnson Brothers, the Pomerenes left the house to the community upon their deaths.

Mission: With the belief that the arts are an integral expression of our humanity and that the creative process is at the core of human advancement and knowledge, the Pomerene Center for the Arts promotes community involvement in the arts in a culturally and geographically isolated community.

Even though most of us are stuck at home and can't go out and enjoy art in museums, that doesn't mean that life is boring or uncultured. The Getty Museum in Los Angeles challenged art fans to post photos of themselves recreating their favorite works of art from the safety of their homes. People resp...

Flash Art Camp: Week III - IF. THEN. Class 3. How to show movement in art. Here's our problem, "The sailor sailed 27 miles on Monday, 34 miles on Tuesday, and 36 miles on Wednesday. Exactly how many miles did the sailor sail?" Love this painting by Winslow Homer called Breezing Up ( A Fair Wind). #TuneInAt2

This painting is part of the collection at the National Gallery of Art. They have a page called LOOK TOGETHER that offers a chance for families to look at and talk about something new. Don't we need a little of that? https://www.nga.gov/education/families/look-together.html

Shhhh- elementary students! I just watched 3rd Grade teacher Mrs. Andrews' video for the day. She was sad and missing her students. It gave me an idea...I think all your teachers are missing all of you.

Join me at 2pm for Flash Art Camp live

Hint if you want to guess at what kind of art we'll be making - yesterday's 3rd grade #2 word problem from Mrs. Andrews was "Carol needs to buy 16 apples for apple bobbing. If each bag contains 4 apples, how many bags will she need to buy?"

03/30/2020

Flash Art Camp​ this week is all about word problems — we're calling it "IF. THEN." I'll be going live at 2pm to create illustrations with you about Bob who drank 4 liters of water a day for 9 days. Have some paper and a pencil, or markers, or pen handy and if you can, something to measure with...could be a 2 liter pop bottle or a gallon milk jug or a measuring cup. #TuneInAt2 Sincerely, Ms. Anne Cornell

Getting ready for today's Flash Art Camp, LEGENDS — class 4. Please join me, Anne Cornell, on the Pomerene Center for the Arts page at 2pm.

We'll read how the hero arrives in the legend Beowulf and imagine how our heroes will travel to conquer the monster.

These gesture drawings were done by 5th Graders at Keene before the pivot to schooling from home. We looked at them yesterday as we prepared to do gesture drawings for our Legends heroes.

Live from Here

Hard times ain't gonna rule my mind.

Today on #LivefromHome: Chris Thile plays Gillian Welch's "Hard Times" and challenges Cecile McLorin Salvant Music and Sullivan Fortner, The Indigo Girls, and Mandolin Orange to join us #livefromhome next!

The Live from Home stage is a digital space where we can keep making and experiencing music and art, even while we can't be physically together. Many performers' gigs have been cancelled and postponed, making their incomes unstable. We encourage you to support the artists you love by buying their music and merch, and through other means of direct support. You can support Live from Here by donating at livefromhere.org/donate-lfhome

Keep making and sharing your music with us! Use #livefromhome and tag @livefromhereapm so we can share.

The Art of Making a Tapestry

#artfixatsix Thinking slow. Working slowly. In response to our current world of everybody at home on slow time we're sharing this video.

There's a shot of the Gobelins (see below) from the courtyard that brings to mind the old glove factory on 5th street on the west side of the tracks between Elm and Vine in Coshocton. Have you ever driven past?

Explore the process of tapestry weaving at the Gobelins Manufactory in Paris, where historical techniques dating to the time of Louis XIV are used to make contemporary works of art.

#TuneInAt2 Flash Art Camp What you need for Legends Class 2. What! We're making monsters today?...Yep.

* Colors of some sort would be great — crayons, colored pencils, markers (I don't have any) — a plain old pencil will do.
* Some sort of paper. I think I'll be using my sheet of newspaper from yesterday to create my monster. )
* Scissors
* Tape or glue
* Your magical garden tapestry background from yesterday if you made one. You can always catch up later.

My daughter just sent me a picture of her oldest daughter catching up. She says it took her a couple of tries to get the woven texture. (See Flash Art Camp week II - Legends. Class 1. Creating a magical garden

#TuneInAt2 Getting ready for today's Flash Art Camp. Class 3. All about painting our paper mache birds — sort of. It's shaping up to be more a painting experiment with multiple mediums. i.e. you don't have to use paint! Case in point, this beautiful painted thread bowl by local artist Carolyn J. Mann.

Carolyn says "Thread painting is a term commonly used for stitching that is pictorial or evokes a feeling much like painting with paint does."

Putting together a series of live video classes for kids in response to our new found restrictions and school cancelings (see Flash Art Camp) sent us on a search of birds in contemporary art. Jackpot! exhibit at the Renwick Gallery (a Smithsonian Museum) in 2014-15 called The Singing and the Silence: Birds in Contemporary Art. This exhibit examined "mankind’s relationship to birds and the natural world through the eyes of twelve major contemporary American artists." Today's #artfixatsix artwork is a piece called Biodiversity Reclamation Suit: Passenger Pigeon by Laurel Roth Hope - Artist Page" uses traditional techniques of carving, embroidery, crochet, and collage to transform ordinary materials into elaborate animal sculptures that are both playful and poignant. Her work is influenced by her background as a park ranger and focuses on the relationship between humankind and nature, touching on topics such as environmental protection, animal behavior, and species extinction." https://americanart.si.edu/exhibitions/birds/online/laurel-roth-hope

Today's Flash Art Camp — sculpting with foil.

Things you'll need: foil (if you don't have foil you can use paper and tape). We'll be making birds. Tomorrow will cover them with paper mache. Then we'll paint and seal and let them 'gather' (if you drop them off at the Pomerene Center) for a public art piece in the artPARK. Lucky birds! #TuneInAt2

#artfixatsix “Shade Wall Fabric” prototypes made by the CHS ART CONNECTS Team from processed, recycled Buehler's plastic bags + thoughts about the art of fashion (prom season approaches) = web search for dresses made from trash. We turned up this incredible “Qing Dynasty Fragment Dress” by Li Xiaofeng (which is actually wearable).

Check out the Blue and White: Fashion blog post from VICTORIA AND ALBERT MUSEUM in London where we found the Fragment Dress + Dr Martens Willow Pattern Collection, 2015 . Ooooooo. https://www.vam.ac.uk/blog/blue-and-white/blue-and-white-fashion

“Shade Wall Fabric” is on display at the Pom through March.
