MONOPRINTS AND VISCOSITY with Joel Janowitz
April 25 & 26, Saturday & Sunday, 10-4PM
$275 plus $40 materials fee. ($250 for members) $100 deposit required to reserve a spot.
Boston artist, Joel Janowitz, will teach a 2-day intensive workshop on the layering of colors in monotype prints, focusing on the surprising and inventive ways oil-based printing inks of different viscosities (stickiness) interact with each other. The results are beautiful, unusual, with unexpected colors.
Both a printmaker and painter, particularly of watercolors, Joel Janowitz is known for his magic with color, mood, and light. Merging representation and abstraction, he softly layers his tones to give us dreamy, moody scenes - the interior of a greenhouse or a summer house in Maine, European cafes and bridges.
Janowitz has exhibited widely, with over thirty solo exhibitions. Joel received a Guggenheim in 2013. His work can be found in numerous public collections, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Brooklyn Museum, the Metropolitan Museum, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Fogg Museum, and the Yale University Art Gallery.
