ON VIEW IN THE HOUSE

Through February 19, 2017
PAT HIDSON + TORI TASCH: DRAW PRINT FOLD PAINT
More information: http://www.lyndensculpturegarden.org/exhibitions/pat-hidson-tori-tasch-draw-print-fold-paint

Pat Hidson and Tori Tasch shared a year-long residency at Lynden that ended last May. It was the first time that Hidson, who is primarily a painter, and Tasch, who makes books and prints, had worked together, but they built their collaboration around their shared concern for the environment and a deep interest in the natural world. For this exhibition, each artist returns to her solo practice, with the occasional nod to the residency in the content of their separate projects and in a small installation of some of the cyanotype prayer flags they made while at Lynden. Their outdoor flag installation remains on view in the birch grove throughout the exhibition. The garden–a place where Hidson spends a lot of her time–is central to the imagery and geometry of her exuberant two-dimensional works. The exhibition includes nine paintings and ten drawings made over the last two years. For Tasch, creating books is a daily ritual and ecological investigation. Her passion for repurposing materials and using layered printmaking processes merge in a series of handmade books: the diminutive insect books that she has paired with objects found onsite, and her Centerfold Series of 365 butterflies. Each butterfly is fabricated from old centerfolds and the repurposed pages of science textbooks. The butterfly-books are symbols of transformation; when they are shown together, they mark the passage of time.

EVENTS

Free to members or with admission to the sculpture garden: $9 general/$7 students & seniors/ $20 for family passes (children under 6 are free).
More information: http://www.lyndensculpturegarden.org/carnival

Lynden welcomes winter with a day of outdoor art-making, studio activities, scavenger hunts, tours and tree-walks, and whatever other winter activities–ice skating, painting the pond, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing–the weather permits. This year the highly participatory, artist-driven carnival, curated by recent MIAD graduate Reece Ousey, features an artist’s version of an outdoor mini-golf course created by Miguel Ramirez–a winter-friendly extension of previous indoor projects Ramirez has exhibited in Milwaukee. Current and former Lynden artists-in-residence, including Sara Caron and Pat Hidson and Tori Tasch, will be on hand, too. Caron is planning a walking performance, and Hidson and Tasch will offer a pressure-printing workshop. The Little Havana Express food truck will be serving Cuban cuisine–sandwiches, empanadas, and hot beverages–from 11 am to 2 pm.

We will have our regular activities–Art Drop-in (including an Extended Art Drop-in on February 20), Tuesdays in the Garden, Dog Day–but otherwise February is given over to our Fiber Fest. Even our family workshop is about weaving friendship bracelets (February 12). Adult workshops include textile marbling (February 4); Navajo tapestry weaving (February 5); two kinds of felting (vessel-making on February 11 and functional felting on February 19); and sculptural crochet (February 18).
