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 Flying in the Hands of Time, A Retrospective, 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.
