Ox-Bow? Its like adult Hogwarts for artists.

June 25, 2013 · Print This Article

Christian Kuras and I have been busily preparing for a class we should have called “The Decent into Awesome.” A class that brings together Avital Ronell, Silkscreens, and Juggalos/Celine Dion, publishing as form, and the new sincerity manifesto, so wrong it can only be right. It is going to be magic. We will make, talk, collaborate, share, and be awesome. (We will definitely figure out whether awesome is really something we want to be and no prior printmaking experience is necessary!)

Our friends at Ox-Bow just let us know that their are still a couple of slots open in our class and we thought we should remind you of the life altering good times that can be had at Ox-Bow. I am going to be polite and not mention the dance parties or Eric May’s (and co’s) amazing cooking or the blazing good times that will be had around the fire every evening. I will just mention that there are still slots available in the following classes and that it is one of the greatest experiences to give your art life.

Towards a New Sincerity with Christian “North” Kuras and Duncan MacKenzie (7/14-7/27)

Lithography with Mark Pascale  (8/11-17)

Egg Tempera with Carl Baratta (7/14-20)
Portrait as Starting Point with Andrew Winship (7/4-10)

If this was is not enough maybe you should check out these images and maybe you should come?
