We are pleased to present your turn: a collaborative art project, two collaborative art workshops, one for adults and another for teens with artists Jacinta Bunnell
and Cindy Hoose.
Saturday, July 22, 1-4pm (Ages 10 and up)
The program will conclude with an art exhibition in the library’s Community Room, with an opening reception on Friday, August 4, 5-7pm.
Jacinta Bunnell and Cindy Hoose are Hudson Valley-based artists who have been collaborating for over a decade on various artistic projects. From 2013-2014, Hoose and Bunnell spent a year making art with repurposed game boards as canvases, taking turns on the works in a manner reminiscent of Exquisite Corpse. In keeping with their commitment to making art from recycled materials, they scavenged yard sales and thrift stores for the games and framing materials that became this collection. At year’s end, they titled the original 52 pieces of artwork your turn, dear. Their work directs our attention to the reasons we play games: to explore the world imaginatively, free of the hope for success or the fear of failure, and to connect with each other in the spirit of joy and sentimentality. They would like to share this process with YOU.
Hoose and Bunnell are inviting you to join them in the practice of making communal artwork. In addition to showing a selection of their artwork from your turn, dear, they will provide two workshops at the Hudson Area Library and share their process of making collaborative art. Through a series of exercises and game-inspired prompts, participants will experience collaborative artmaking using a mix of recycled materials and traditional artmaking techniques. There is an element of play and adventure in the design of the workshops, where participants take turns, take chances, develop trust, and learn to make art without judgment.
Come play, make art, make friends, and be inspired. We are also asking people to drop off your old board games to be turned into art for the workshop. No Artistic Experience Required. To register for the program email : firstname.lastname@example.org or call 518-828-1792 x101.
