From Street Art to Rural Barn Paintings: Telling Our Big Stories - June 11-17, 2017

Andee Rudloff - Shakerag WorkshopsFrom Street Art to Rural Barn Paintings: Telling Our Big StoriesSession One - June 11-17, 2017

Course Description
Street art can be very mysterious yet evoke pride and a sense of place, just as rural barn murals do. Graffiti, street art, and murals have enjoyed an international subculture spanning nearly four decades. With the emergence and popularity of Banksy in recent years, museums and galleries have become interested in which was once considered vandalism. Participants in this class will learn about the evolving movement through presentations and then learn and practice techniques such as stenciling, printmaking, painting, and wheat pasting. Participants are encouraged to bring their innovative ideas as well as personal images and pictures to discover the endless options for assembling and connecting. The goal is to take our different approaches to personal connections and expression in order to create unique designs. Participants will learn new and alternative approaches to both surface and construction. Each participant will leave with new concepts, original reusable pieces, and their own individual mural!

Artist's Biography
Andrea D. Rudloff (Andee) is a consultant, educator and professional artist working in Kentucky and Tennessee. Her goal is always to engage community through creative opportunities and she does so frequently through murals, exhibitions, greenway planning and engagement activities.

About Shakerag Workshops

Shakerag Workshops is an adult studio art workshop program, with week-long classes offered in various different media. Participants register for one class each week, and each day classes meet from 9:00-12:00 and 1:00-4:00. Students and faculty members often work together in the studios during the late afternoons and evenings, as they choose, occasionally taking time off from their artistic endeavors for swimming or yoga.

Shakerag Workshops began in June 2004, with six classes in clay, digital arts, and book arts. From that small beginning, the program doubled in size with twelve classes offered in June 2005 in book arts, clay, digital arts, papermaking, felting, and watercolor. Since those first years, each week 50-65 participants gather to work together in small classes with their teachers, enjoying the studio immersion and the relaxation that are afforded by being away from the daily concerns of one's life. Participants of all ages, backgrounds, and levels of experience have come to Shakerag - varying in experience from beginners to professional studio artists, coming from near (Sewanee and Monteagle) and far (Hawaii and Switzerland and England). Each week a new community is created - and participants leaving at week's end have said that they feel renewed and invigorated by their Shakerag experience.

My Community My World opens Thursday, October 20th - Etowah, TN

My Community My World
Curatorial Statement
Andee Rudloff, Curator

My Community My World is a group photography exhibition based in Etowah, Tennessee, of several young artists exploring their lives through the summer of 2016. Through photography they investigate the mundane to the magnificent. The resulting perspectives inform how we perceive ourselves in the world around us. Works in the exhibition range from buildings, people, events, and special moments spanning the ideological, magical, dynamic, exaggerated perspectives in the region. The images are not only true for the young artists but I believe the intention behind each photograph rings true for all no matter the location.

The show takes its name from a unique program through Humanities Tennessee encouraging Tennessee communities to tell their stories. My Community My World features over forty-eight photos depicting the artists' viewpoints of summer within the community. All of the images were taken using a Nikon Coolpix S3700 Silver digital camera and each young artist had access to professionals locally and throughout the state. The photos together form a narrative about people, place, and time. At a time when youth, especially teens, are bombarded with the world perceptions via the Internet through the simple touch of a phone, each of the images show a sacred look into what is important within the community to each of these young artists.

Many of the works look at identity through place. Without the laborious effort of film and developing, the artists were encouraged to take many pictures of the same subject, bring their series to the group for discussion, and share why one image was the best image in the series. Artists described how an image shaped or change their own assumptions and their thoughts of family and environment. Photography captures, suspends, even transcends a moment or series of events in time. Works in the show present us with imagery through the storyteller's eye including journeys into nature, cycles of exploration and destruction, personas, curiosity and moments of celebration, cultural heritage and  even pop imagery. But what all of the artists attempt to show us is where we as a society are connected, where we are all alike, and where we might be heading.

I was honored to serve as the curator of My Community My World. Special thanks to Etowah Arts Commission Director Pat Armstrong and Linda and Jim Caldwell. Congrats all!

ArtPrize voting starts September 21, 2016!

Andee is a professional artist, muralist, consultant, and educator. Her goal is to engage community through art and she does so frequently through murals like her ArtPrize 8 entry at The Cottage Bar. The ArtPrize Community Mural  started a couple of months ago through social media where she asked residents in Grand Rapids to submit icons, ideas, and happenings which make Grand Rapids a great place to be. She took all of the ideas submitted, prepared the surface, and twisted all of them into one composition. Next, Andee scaled the design to the building. She invited the community to paint with her and visitors engaged in painting with Andee on site with a couple of rules and lots of creative freedom. She was thrilled to welcome local cultural icons Randy Finch, Ralston Bowles, and outsider artist REB. Andee then reinforced the design by going back over it with a clean black line, reminiscent of 1980s NYC artist Keith Haring, with the assistance of a Grand Rapids resident Jen Wimbush, Ralston Bowles and a few others. The finished piece includes an interactive video component highlighting the participants and the process and you can view it here. All can be viewed on the website and via social media.
