Oct 8, 2019 3:00 PM
To heighten the experience of two special exhibitions, the Parrish Art Museum is offering three adult art classes beginning this month that delve into an exploration of color, and the techniques employed by artists Helen Frankenthaler and Laurie Lambrecht.In a special one-day late morning session, Road Show artist Laurie Lambrecht will teach the basics of “Tapestry Weaving” on a loom while incorporating yarn and other materials.

On three Fridays at 10 a.m., beginning October 18, Barbara Thomas will teach “Color in Painting,” focusing on the various properties of color, as inspired by the exhibition “Abstract Climates: Helen Frankenthaler in Provincetown.” On the weekend of October 19, artist Eric Dever explores Frankenthaler’s techniques in his “Painting Intensive: Abstract Climates” that will delve into the many ways of applying the medium.

Beginners as well as more advanced students are invited to sign up for the classes, which provide the opportunity to explore the properties of color and paint, experience the work of Helen Frankenthaler through her work and hands-on experimentation, and to learn the basics of weaving and extended techniques with fiber artist Laurie Lambrecht,” said Cara Conklin-Wingfield, Parrish Art Museum Director of Education.

Lambrecht’s Road Show project “Limn to Limb” will be on view through November 3 at The Madoo Conservancy in Sagaponack. It includes colorful weavings and hand knitted covers for rocks and trees. In her “Tapestry Weaving” workshop, participants will explore color and texture while learning to work on a frame loom, incorporating natural materials and found objects. The course is Friday, October 11, from 10 a.m. to 1pm. Cost is $45 ($35 members). Registration deadline is October 3 and yarns, looms, and materials are provided.
