Intermediate Photography with Gregory Vershbow
by Gregory Vershbow
This course is for those familiar with their cameras, but would like more in-depth discussion. The world of contemporary photography, as well as the technical and aesthetic subjects of composition, landscape, and portraiture is explored. Emphasis is on shooting in either digital or film media. Participants must have an interchangeable lens camera, capable of manual setting with a zoom lens or several fixed focal length lenses. A tripod is helpful.

Painted Tile and Creative Mosaics with Lorraine Oerth
Students will learn to master several tile and mosaic techniques: underglaze painting on commercial bisque tile, majolica painting on bisque. Students will create mosaic projects for indoor or outdoor use with an emphasis on the creative process. Students may also create their own tile from wet clay using slab methods. A materials fee of $10 covers cost of using special underglazes provided by instructor, or you may bring your own. Bisque tile is available at a nominal cost. Course includes 5 pounds of wet clay and firing.

For this installment of “Art Bites,” we look into the diptych of America Remembers/The Lives by Hernán Murno in the July open exhibit. Murno’s strong, graphic lines are reminiscent of early American Abstraction art of the 1940s. American Abstractionist work rose from a time of political unrest in response to WWII, and looking at Murno’s piece, you have the feeling that the aesthetic choice was not only inspired by the abstract movement but also reflective of today’s unique political tensions.
