“Community”: Woodstock Library Portrait Project with Claire Lambe
Starts: Friday, January 9, 2015 @ 12:00pm-4:00pm. Happening on most Fridays over the next few months!
On January 9, 2015, Woodstock-based artist Claire Lambe (http://www NULL.clairelambe NULL.net/) will begin a portrait project entitled, “Community,” at the Woodstock Library. This Friday and most Fridays over the next few months, from 12:00pm-4:00pm, she will be in the Art Books Room to paint whom-so-ever signs up to be painted. The idea is to create a picture of the community as it looks in 2015, and she is asking for volunteers from the local community to be volunteer participants. Her intention is that the portraits should be painted as much as possible from life – exceptions will be made for the very young, the elderly and others who cannot sit; these will be painted from photographic sources. Accommodation will also be made for people who aren’t free on Friday afternoons.
Claire has recently had a well-reviewed exhibition at the Uptown Gallery in Kingston and she encourages people to visit her website, www.clairelambe.net (http://www NULL.clairelambe NULL.net) to view her work and learn more the project on the “Projects” page where, on a drop-down menu, there is a page for “Frequently Asked Questions” (FAQs) – there is a FAQ sheet at the library too. To participate, all you have to do is sign up. The only requirement is to be willing to donate two or, preferably, three hours to sit (there will be breaks!). There is a sign up sheet at the circulation desk and you may also sign up via the artist’s website (http://www NULL.clairelambe NULL.net/projects NULL.html) (click on the email icon). We hope a lot of people will participate and the project will be a good reflection of our community. Claire is also happy to have people come and watch while she works, or just hang out and look at the art books.
