1:00pm – 2:00pm
Award-winning artists Harriette Tsosie and Elle MacLaren will guide participants through their artmaking processes and the inspirations for the exhibit “Cosmic.”
Harriette Tsosie’s work consists of a series of scrolls about the known planets in our solar system as well as discoveries made with the assistance of contemporary technology, such as the Hubble Space Telescope. Her father, an amateur astronomer, inspired this series of work.
Elle MacLaren’s creative process manifests as an exploration of environmental images. Material, color, and texture are the important elements of this exploration using encaustic, metal, cement, oils, graphite and various other media. Her work references landscapes, cityscapes, and “planetscapes.”
