CALL FOR ARTISTS!
Artists are encouraged to sign up to be part of a public collaborative artwork at the Addison Public Library. The Library and their Artist in Residence, Antonia Ruppert, need 12 local artists for “The Faces of Addison” project. Each artist will be paired with a prominent resident of Addison to paint a 12” x 12” portrait of them. If you are concerned like me that you are not a portrait artist, they’ve got us covered! Ms. Ruppert and the Library will be taking pictures of your resident and transferring the image to the 12” x 12” watercolor panel. We just need to flesh out the photo transfer in our own style. The Library will provide watercolor crayons, pencils, the panels, and Omicron markers for you to use. You can bring your own art kit too. You will be creating the piece within a 2 or 3-hour block of time.
You have three dates to choose from to make a Faces of Addison portrait:
Thursday, November 17, 2022 from 1 to 4 pm.
Thursday, December 1, 2022 from 1:30 to 4:30 pm.
Thursday, December 8, 2022 from 5 to 7 pm.
The work of 12 portraits will be displayed as part of the permanent art collection of the Addison Public Library. It’s a great opportunity!
