at 516 ARTS - FULL (wait list available)
REGISTER:, 505-242-1445

In conjunction with her summer exhibition at 516 ARTS, Paula Wilson invites teens and adults at all levels to join with her on a large-scale printmaking project at three partner venues in Albuquerque: Harwood Art Center, Remarque/NewGrounds Print Shop, and 516 ARTS. Together with the artist, participants will generate an large-scale print installation to be on view in her exhibition titled Entangled. For this project, Wilson will focus on desert flora and fauna—making visual the unseen interconnected relationships at play in the landscape. Participants will engage with her materials and conceptual processes, intermixing printmaking techniques with multi-cultural references toward a simultaneously realistic and unworldly world view. All participants will be credited as collaborators in the exhibition and will receive a painted portrait from the artist.
