The Parrish Art Museum continues its Live from the Studio series on Wednesday, April 22, with photographer and textile artist Laurie Lambrecht. The series offers free live-stream art workshops. Lambrecht will explore photo-weaving as a means to connect in this time of separation.
“Our first live-stream workshop, with Barbara Thomas, attracted more than 70 enthusiastic participants and many shared their work with us on Instagram,” said Cara Conklin-Wingfield, the Parrish’s education director. “Our teaching artists are generously volunteering their time to bring art to the Parrish community, and the response we’ve gotten speaks to the importance of art for all of us now.”
Lambrecht, an internationally known artist and photographer, was featured last fall as a Parrish Road Show artist. She presented “Limn to Limb,” a site-specific installation of photography, weaving, printmaking, and knitting at the Madoo Conservancy in Bridgehampton.
Her photo-weaving workshop will be led from her Bridgehampton studio. Materials needed include photographs printed on 8 1/2 x 11-inch paper, a ruler, scissors, and clear tape. For the photos, Lambrecht suggests participants use one of their own and one from a friend they can’t be together with at this time.
Participants can follow along with the artists’ instruction, while interacting through a live chat. Classes are for any skill level and open to adults and families. For more info on the series, or to register, visit www.parrishart.org.
