Museum & Art Center offers batik workshop
BRATTLEBORO — The Brattleboro Museum & Art Center presents "Color Splash," a resist-dyeing workshop, on Saturday, July 27, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The workshop is open to participants ages 8 and up and is free with regular museum admission. Space is limited to 20 people. Attendees must register in advance on the BMAC website or by calling 802-257-0124 ext. 101.
Taking inspiration from the colors and imagery in the exhibit "Ocean's Edge," participants will use a simplified batik technique to make cards to take home as well as small banners, including one that the museum will keep and display during Brattleboro's Gallery Walk on Friday, August 2.
"Ocean's Edge" is an exhibition of three artists' depictions of life at the beach: Isca Greenfield-Sanders' elegant layered compositions, David Kapp's collages in the saturated colors of Mexico, and Graham Nickson's paintings of skies and bathers in Maine, Long Island, and Nantucket. The exhibit is on view through September 23.
Located in historic Union Station, at the intersection of Main Street and Routes 119 and 142, the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center presents rotating exhibits of contemporary art, complemented by lectures, artist talks, film screenings, and other public programs. Major support for BMAC is provided by its members and Allen Bros. Oil, Brattleboro Savings & Loan, C&S Wholesale Grocers, the Four Columns Inn, Sam's Outdoor Outfitters, and Whetstone Station Restaurant & Brewery.
