Workshop: Experiments with Chance: Hand-Printed Monotypes, led by Beverly Acha

Fri, April 20 2018 - 9:30 am

The relationship between chance and choice is always present in art making: accidents can lead artists in a new direction or an unexpected reaction between materials can lead to working in a completely new way. Beginning with the Surrealists, who were interested in taping into the subconscious – that wild space of the nonsensical and unknown – to artists like Marcel Duchamp, Francis Alÿs, John Cage, and Yoko Ono, chance has been used both as a starting point for works of art and a vital art making process in and of itself. In this workshop, participants will learn how to make hand printed monotypes using methods and techniques that embrace printmaking’s fortuitous disposition. Come ready to experiment and challenge your aesthetic expectations.

Born in Miami, FL, and currently based in California, Beverly Acha makes paintings, prints, and drawings that employ a language of abstraction that explores structures of space, time, and perception. Responding to shifts in her physical environment and landscape, Acha uses light, color, and structural forms to capture the ways in which place changes how we see and move through space.

Led by Beverly Acha, the 2017 Smelser-Vallion Visiting Artist. Learn more about her residency.
