Palimpsest Workshop at The Bonny Studio

Just last month I worked with 12 talented artists in a two-day Palimpsest Workshop I taught at The Bonny Studio in Richardson, TX. Bonny Leibowitz, artist, owner, and operator of The Bonny Studio, invited me some time back to come do a workshop and my schedule finally opened up for the weekend of Jan 24-25.

The students arrived on Saturday morning with bags full of maps, floor plans, magazine pages, old photos and more to collage onto panels. We worked to find or create connections among the diverse materials, applied them to the panels and then painted another image or images atop the collage–in essence placing our text above other texts to establish a palimpsest. On Sunday afternoon participants got to share their works with each other and the results were impressive in quality and variety.
