Gather with other people who love art and our planet. North Texas artist Isabel Lee-Rosson will share poetic art processes that renew nature and our spirit while making connections with Groundswell: Women of Land Art. Add your natural flair to a vine wreath for your home and a flower bomb to plant in your garden.
This workshop is designed for adults ages 21+. Learn something new, have a bite to eat, and get creative.
Registration is $30 for Nasher Members; $40 for Non-members. Ticket price includes drinks, snacks, and all art-making supplies. Advance registration required.
Influenced by the work of women land artists, such as Agnes Denes, Maren Hassinger, and Ana Mendieta, Lee-Rosson’s expanded practice includes mixed media work on paper, installations of guerrilla gardens, and a series of woven structures titled Odes. Her work calls attention to the deterioration of the environment while educating and offering solutions to these issues through composting techniques and the utilization of traditional wattle weaving. Lee-Rosson’s Odes aim to honor the site they are built on through material choices, improving the soil, and providing a habitat that supports native flora, insects, and birds.
