Pigment + Place: Deep Space and Time- May 25-June 4, 2023


This 10-night workshop/residency experience led by artist and writer Daniela Molnar with guest geologist Daniele McKay, will introduce you to the natural pigments of the Oregon Outback, the ecologically unique region in which Playa is located. Pigments allow us to feel forms of time that our daily lives can obscure — geologic time, photosynthetic time, or what is often called “deep time.” In opening up different timescales, pigments offer a balm for the confusion and challenging emotions that ecological crises can provoke. Here in the vast, open space, making pigments from rocks and plants, you will be offered the opportunity to interact with ancient rhythms. In this way, the pigments will lead you to new directions in your art. The 10-days will include a combination of field trips, conversations, demos, slideshows, and skill-building group activities, with ample individual studio time paired with optional studio visits from the instructor to discuss your questions, interests, and goals.
