Painting’s Edge
Workshops, Critiques, Lectures, Discussions, Exhibitions
An advanced painting resident workshop for serious painters, plus evening lectures and exhibit open to the public.

Coordinated by Roland Reiss

Explore new prospects and dialogue in contemporary painting with a view to expanding the potential in your work. Fresh possibilities in figurative and abstract painting will be examined. Course involves intensive feedback including private critiques with each of the five Visiting Artists and Critics and the Coordinator. Several additional critiques will be scheduled with Guest Artists and Critics as well. This course is committed to the development of each participant’s individual outlook in concept and practice.

The Painting’s Edge workshop is not for beginners. It is for those who have worked in painting at art schools or colleges and those more advanced including graduates, postgraduates and professionals looking for professional-level guidance, critique and discussion. Some knowledge of painting history, especially after 1945, and an acquaintance with developments since 1960 will be necessary.

Studio work may also incorporate collage, photographic processes, drawing, three-dimensional objects and other materials. Participants should bring stretched or unstretched canvas or other surfaces appropriate for their work. Large surfaces are encouraged. Please bring paint, brushes, tools, and a set of slides of previous work in a carousel. Applicants should be aware that there will be room to work, but space is limited. It is preferred that participants use mineral spirits rather than turpentine in the studio.

Acceptance for workshop is contingent upon a portfolio review by committee.

Includes Intensive Painting Workshop and full participation in all discussions and lectures, individual critiques by each visiting artist, coordinator, three or more guest artists and critics. Critiques will be done from slides (brought in carousel) or CD/laptop of past work, and original work done in the class or brought for that purpose. Slide stations will be available for individual critical sessions. Painting is optional. Intent to paint during workshop must be declared on application for work space allotment. Tuition includes meals and housing.
