About the event
In this workshop, artist Richard T. Reep will provide an overview on German contributions to an important art form in the Western tradition, found object art. Work by Kurt Scwitters, Raoul Hausmann, George Grosz, and Joseph Beuys will be featured as part of a short presentation to discuss and analyze forms such as wunderkammer, assemblage, ready-made, and collage. Reep will then present an approach to found object art using historical examples as well as selections from his own body of work before guiding participants through a process of creating their own artworks.
Final, finished pieces are not the goal of this workshop; rather, the goal is to reveal an insight into a process which can yield individual and unique results to each artist through developing an initial concept, refining the concept, then finalizing and assessing the work. Reep will review and critique the results of the workshop, suggesting next steps to the students and offering a question and answer session. As a take-home, participants will also receive a complete workshop syllabus along with a suggested reading list from Reep to utilize in their continued work in found object art-making.
Admission is offered on a sliding scale. Please pay what you can, suggested $20-35. All proceeds are paid to the artist.
Participants are invited to bring their own found materials. Wood panels of assorted sizes will be provided to each participant as a base to build their artwork.
