The workshop, O+X = DO AND DON’T will focus will on integrating environmental Do’s and Don’ts and crafting with trash. Come join two environmental artists and share your ideas for making the world a better place. Drop in to the Kingston Artist Collective to contribute your own Do’s and Don’ts to Maxine’s cooperative sculpture and to create a reusable woven bag from old T-shirts with Arielle. Chat with the artists and get creative. Bring an old t-shirt if you can! (T-shirts will available for those who need one.)
Maxine is an environmental Taiwanese artist that focuses on the environment, communication and identity. Her most recent performance work titled Plady, a mummy made from plastics bags worn in Tops Friendly Markets, was documented in The Oracle and New Paltz Times.
Arielle Ponder has a deep respect and appreciation for our environment. Her work reflects the careful balance between humanity and nature. It is often inspired by the natural splendor and beauty of the region but also urges towards the spiritual and deeply emotional.
