Each winter, Wave Hill opens Glyndor Gallery as workspace for New York-area artists, giving them the unique opportunity to explore the winter landscape as a source of inspiration. Artists share aspects of their practice and engagement with Wave Hill through hands-on workshops. Workshops begin in Glyndor Gallery with an introduction to the artist’s work, then continue in the Ecology Building or Wave Hill House for the creative activity.
Gathering organic materials in the fall, during the Winter Workspace Gwen Fabricant will expand in scale her printed compositions to make a larger work whose underlying structure will reference an 18th-century Mongolian manuscript. Today, observe natural objects and botanical forms; then capture their essence by using a digital scanner and printer in a multi-step collage process. Zoom in on textures, compose shapes and arrange lines using a collection of plant materials. Visitors aged 12 and over are welcome when accompanied by an adult. Newcomers and practicing artists alike are welcome.
