The Osage Nation Museum (ONM) and Osage Teaching Artist Addie Roanhorse will be conducting a Monotype Printmaking Workshop from 12 – 4 p.m. on March 3, in conjunction with the Traditional Values/Contemporary Vision: Works by Gina Gray. This workshop is free and open to the public of all ages. No prior experience is necessary.
Gina Gray was known for her monotypes, many of which are currently on exhibit at the ONM. Over the years Gray developed her very own graphic sense and style with her prolific monotype production. Using vibrant colors, bold, yet elegant lines, and striking silhouettes; Gray’s depictions of Osage culture evoke traditional values with both insight and contemporary vision. We invite participants to join us at the ONM to learn how to create monotype prints using the same methods Gray used. Participants will experience the joys and possibilities of monotype printmaking using Gina Gray’s prints as inspiration.
This workshop is designed for anyone who has an interest in monotype printmaking and wants to learn more. Participants will learn how to create monotype prints and will leave with several original art pieces. This art form is a quick and easy way to create unique, one-of-a-kind prints.
Demonstrations of the process will be conducted every hour starting at 12pm. This instruction will encourage participants to create prints that reflect their personal voice and expression. Various techniques will be explained, including additive and subtractive methods, use of stencils, as well as proper inking methods, and press instruction.
