"Making Cyanotypes"
April 9-10, 2024
 

Cyanotypes exist at the intersection of photography and printmaking – perfect for Florida sunshine. Join Timothy in a fun, easy and informative workshop and leave with a few cyanotypes and newfound knowledge of the medium. With a background in printmaking and alternative photographic processes, Timothy has innovated the historical cyanotype process into a larger format using photographic negatives as a base. His time spent with graffiti artists across the country has led him to expand upon the uses of the traditional wheat-paste process to create beautiful and unique pieces. Timothy has a passion for altering spaces through the creation of massive wall pieces that are impactful, boundary-pushing, and completely unique.

"Developing Personal Visual Archetypes"
July 8-9, 2024
 

Often, Southern folklife is represented visually as a whole in redundant cliches. The repainted tropes strip away all meaning, beauty and dignity, and unfortunately, result in a loss of interest and respect, with the real danger of having no societal contribution. Nonney shares new visual archetypes that are based on specifics – regional folklife, folklore and indigenous flora and fauna, but with an added personal twist. These twists reclaim individuality, and use modernism coupled with tradition to create a new depiction of Southern Art. Create your own new archetypes influenced by her presentation.
