Art Workshop - Experimental Painting En Plein Air

Venue: Ox-Bow Campus
3435 Rupprecht Way Saugatuck, MI 49453

This workshop is for plein air enthusiasts looking to expand their repertoire and for those curious to start painting out-of-doors with watercolor and/or ink on paper. We will depart from the traditional plein air landscape to focus on the details of natural surfaces and textures. Then, we will engage in experimental mark-making by improvising “brushes” made from natural materials that we will gather on Ox-Bow’s campus. No experience is necessary.

NICOLE MAUSER’s paintings and installations investigate tensions at play between color fields, materiality, and gesture within a language of abstraction. Her paintings have been exhibited nationally and internationally at venues including rk Gallery, Lichtenberg; the Arts Club of Chicago, Tiger Strikes Asteroid, and Carrie Secrist Gallery, Chicago; and Carthage College, Kenosha, Wisconsin. A former Chicago Artists Coalition HATCH Resident and Latitude Artist-in-Residence, Mauser received a City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events Individual Artists Program Grant in 2017 and 2018. She was a co-founder of the Kansas City Plein Air Coterie, a group of artists engaged in making paintings outdoors every week for more than a year, culminating in public workshops and exhibitions.
