Godwin-Ternbach Event: Artist Talk with Jordan Casteel

The Godwin-Ternbach Museum is proud to welcome contemporary artist Jordan Casteel for a virtual artist talk on Tuesday, January 19, 2021 at 7pm.

Casteel has rooted her practice in community engagement, painting from her own photographs of people she encounters. Posing her subjects within their natural environments, her nearly life-size portraits and cropped compositions chronicle personal observations of the human experience.

This program is presented in conjunction with the virtual exhibition HUMAN/Nature: Portraits from the Permanent Collection. Program is FREE and registrations are required.
Please email to register and receive instructions on how to join us online.

Spring 2021 Course Offering: ARTS 272 – Etching/Intaglio Printmaking

Seats are still open for ARTS 272/ARTS 372, a hybrid course on Mondays 1:40-5:30 with Professor Lisa Mackie.

This Course covers several processes used to create a printing matrix on copper, plexiglass and cardboard. Drypoint, carborundum aquatint, and the use of collagraph plates and monotype will be demonstrated. Printing techniques: stencil printing, relief and intaglio inking, multi-plate registration and editioning will be covered. This semester we will be mixing color ink using  waterbase and soap base inks so that you may work at home. Catalytic assignments will be presented to correlate with related printmaking techniques. Students will select from Project Themes such as: “Que Sommes Nous/Ou Allons Nous?” and “Choose an Evolving Topic.” Through the process of working in a printmaking series, images may also be reexamined, varied and extended. We will visually explore concepts and allow them to develop among the parameters and new territory of Intaglio/Etching and venture into Mixed Media. Participants will also be informed about the Heritage, History, and Technology of Traditional and Contemporary Printmaking.

Students interesting in registering for the course can use the following CUNYfirst codes:
ARTS 272 | 53797
