Anna Gaskell was born in Des Moines, Iowa, in 1969, and currently lives and works in New York. Her carefully planned photographs, films, and drawings are often self-reflective, ethereal, and dream-like. Her work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at institutions including the Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus, the Menil Collection, Houston, Des Moines Art Center, and Aspen Art Museum.
A magic touch is needed to transform familiar objects into extraordinary artworks! We’ll use what we find in the studio as inspiration for new drawings, paintings, and three-dimensional works that come to life through our unique perspectives and creative stories.
Check out Aspen through a new lens, visiting landmarks and hidden gems around town with an artist’s eye. We will respond to stories heard from local experts through photography, sketching, and collage techniques. A beautiful travelogue will be the result of our explorations as a keepsake of the experience.
In this special performance, Marc Ribot presents a live guitar score to the classic silent film, The Kid, contemporizing this classic Chaplin film to a story relevant to the economic and social conditions of today. Ribot, who Rolling Stone describes as “emotive, graceful, but with a glint of mischief in his method,” has released over twenty albums and performed with Robert Plant, Alison Krauss, Elvis Costello, and more.
Progress takes an unexpected path in this wacky Workshop. We will start the Workshop exploring performance art and creating giveaway artworks that form a float to be marched down Main Street during the Old Fashioned Fourth of July Parade. Over the course of the rest of the week, we will create personal artworks in a variety of media to share with others. (Note: class on July 4 ends after parade.)
Tuesday–Sunday, 10 AM–6 PM
