with Scott Bluedorn
Sunday, August 4 | 11:30 AM | Ages 16+ | $20 ($15 for Friends of SAC)
Join us for this special 90-minute sketching session in the Photo Ark galleries with East Hampton artist Scott Bluedorn, known for his elaborate marine life drawings.
All levels encouraged. Materials will be provided.
Scott Bluedorn was born in Southampton and lives and works in East Hampton, NY and is a 2009 BFA graduate of the BFA School of Visual Arts.
The artist, illustrator and designer works in various media, including painting, drawing, print process, and found object assemblage. Drawing inspiration from cultural anthropology, primitivism, and nautical tradition, Bluedorn distills imagery that speaks to the collective unconscious, especially through myth and visual story-telling – a world he conjures as “maritime cosmology”.
Two simultaneous exhibitions focusing on the world of printmaking will feature giants in modern and contemporary art, along with talented artists from all over the world. Both exhibitions, the brainchildren of Sag Harbor artist and master printmaker Dan Welden, combine to create a milestone event that brings printmaking to the forefront of art. Presented with Inspiration Plus and Dan Welden. Image: Roy Nicholson; Toxic Garden (Sweet Pea) 7, 2013; Solarplate
