Inspiring creativity workshop
April 23, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Artist Angie Williamson will be showing her work in the Jean Marie Gaulke library meeting room during the month of April. Williamson will also offer a program “Inspiring creativity” on Saturday, April 23, at 2:00pm. Participants will look at three influential artists and what they have to say about the creative process and roots of creativity in an effort to inspire reflection. Participants will look at Pablo Picasso, Miles Davis and Joyce Carol Oates.
Angie Williamson owns Northwest by Southwest Fine Art studio in White Salmon, WA. Williamson holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of North Carolina at Asheville. Williamson’s early work centered on the space that people can take up and (leave empty) within the physical body. Using biomorphic abstraction Williamson has gained a solid foundation for what the term ‘body’ means for her.
Currently, Williamson is working with the motion of the human body, both physical and spiritual/emotional. In exploring the relationship between motion and emotion she is working to better understand how people experience the world. Her passion for color and the movement of line are rooted in the river, and her favorite way to experience the river is through kayaking.
Williamson’s preferred methods for working involve the laying of materials to convey a sense of time, motion and emotion. Her work typically falls into two camps, what she refers to at ‘varnishings’ and ‘sandings’. Both are methods that involve extensive layering (and sometimes removal) of wood, paint, acrylic mediums, and oil paint.
