Thank you so much to everyone who came out for the workshop today! We had a wonderful time. If you’d like to be added to our e-mail list so you don’t miss future events, let me know. And if you missed the workshop today, there will be another one on Tuesday, August 14th at 5pm at Zephyr Community Art Studio, which will be part of an opening for the show “Water Sound: Suminagashi at Zephyr.” E-mail me at email@example.com if you are thinking about attending!
The workshop is TODAY! So if you signed up, we’ll see you at 1pm! The address is the Railyard Community Room, 701 Callejon (behind SITE). Unfortunately we are full at this time, and may not be able to accommodate walk-ins.
My mom and I (under our artist collective, Maternal Mitochondria) are being featured on the literary magazine Ninth Letter! Very exciting. Check it out-
And our website is Maternal Mitochondria.
Come Join Us For A Unique and FREE Experience Combining Poetry & Suminagashi!
Miriam Sagan & Isabel Winson-Sagan, the creative team Maternal Mitochondria, will be building an art and poetry geocache pathway in Santa Fe’s Railyard Park this summer.
And we want you to help create it.
A FREE WORKSHOP:
When: August 11
Where: Community Room in The Railyard
To register: write firstname.lastname@example.org with your phone number & email. We will have directions etc.
Limited to 15-20 participants
Priority will be given to kids under 18, and anyone accompanying them.
The workshop will teach each participant to create suminagashi, Japanese inspired marbling, on paper. We will work with low impact materials—water trays and ink.
We will also create poetry based on “weathergrams”—short poems about the environment and our inner selves.
Once the workshop is over, Miriam and Isabel will curate the show. We will combine suminagashi and text, and install it in hidden but findable locations in the Railyard Park. The pathway will be geocached, and locatable by GPS. We will also have maps. The work will be presented anonymously—and the paper and text may have two different authors. All participants will be listed and thanked as part of the pathway, and on our website: https://maternalmitochondria.com/
There will be an informal opening in mid-September. We’ll tell you when it is up, and you can walk it and share it with your friends. It’s a magical way to respond to a special spot in our city of Santa Fe.
We look forward to working with you!
This is the second part of our exhibition at Studio Kura in Itoshima, Japan. Tiny teapots in a Japanese garden! Each teapot has a poem inside.
