Art & Identity: Portraits of People & Places in Time (February)


Saturday, February 16

1:30–3pm Where

Greene Education Center


Explore the depth and power of portraiture in a hands-on portraiture workshop with artist Joliana Hunter-Ellin. Learn how it can be used to communicate ideas, evoke emotions, reflect the climate of the historical period in which it was created, and effect social change. Explore works on loan from Art Bridges, among others, through the perspective of the artist; then, create your own self-portrait using printmaking and collage.

Joliana Hunter-Ellin, who studied Studio Art at SUNY Oneonta, works primarily in printmaking and experiments with alternative photography. Her work explores concepts of afro-futurism, as well as present-day notions of the black female experience.
