Margaretta Gilboy - How Real Is This Picture?

Sunday April 19 – 2:00-5:00pm

Margaretta considered herself a realist, yet some of her images appear to be distortions or are spatially ambiguous. Bring a print from a photo that you have taken of your television screen while a favorite program is playing. Do a drawing of the image, or part of the image, and we will discuss what Margaretta may have meant by “reality.”

ASLD is proud to partner with BMoCA in support of , celebrating the work of artist Margaretta Gilboy, with a series of workshops that will allow participants to deeply explore Gilboy’s artistic vision. All will be taught by ASLD faculty member Sandra Kaplan, Gilboy’s long-time friend and close artistic peer.
