New WallWorks artist Jeremy Johnson

Lincoln artist Jeremy Johnson has executed his largest painting ever, and probably his first outdoor mural, created for Constellation Studios ongoing WallWorks public art project.  This new addition to brings painterly atmospheric abstraction, a sense of voids and spheres, gestural drips and tendrils.    We all watched in amazement as Jeremy responded each day to his stenciling props of sticks and antlers, his energetic layering with spray and brush, as he responds intuitively to the paint and the surrounding at large.   Many passers-by were interested and engaged in dialogue with this intelligent and driven artist.   Jeremy holds an MFA from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Fall Activities – visiting artists and workshop

Papermaker Helen Hiebert was here for a watermarking workshop with UNL students in the papermaking studio.   We learned interesting techniques and refined our skills for pulp preparation and sheet forming.   She presented a great variety of samples that inspired intricate designs for the transmission of light through the paper as a watermark, due to the different thickness of the paper.   Very beautiful results!

The fall Color Woodcut Printmaking Workshop brought artists together for color and a collaborative atmosphere.   Everyone enjoyed the studio space and time, and we saw influences between each other from sharing color layers and conversations.   Another experience of “Constellation Studio heaven”!   Thank you Stephanie, Nancy, Lisa, Kelly, Katherine!
