A Few Updates @ WAM

There are a few updates at the Worcester Art Museum. One is that there is a new gallery open in the Contemporary Gallery called "You Are Here." It holds some artwork that has been displayed at the museum in past exhibits, but there are still quite a few things that I had never seen before, so some of the artwork might have been inn storage for quite some time. It is all abstract.

In the new movie "American Hustle," Christian Bale is in a scene with Bradley Cooper at the Worcester Art Museum. I recall the day they filmed in the gallery where this painting, Saint Bartholomew, is located on the second floor. Unlike other filming projects that had been done, this was quite secretive and the galleries were closed to the public. I forget if that was before the rearrangement of the artwork when it became the Remastered Galleries. I have yet to see the film.

The Worcester Art Museum will not be open on New Year's Eve during First Night Worcester this year due to the fact that it falls on a Tuesday when the museum is normally closed. There will be events for people outside the museum, but the galleries will be closed. Besides, there are three other museums that will be open in the area for people to visit.

There is a new piece of artwork on display in the Jeppson Gallery. I will discuss that when I have a picture.

Happy Holidays everyone!

New Exhibit at the Worcester Art Museum: Works in Process: from Print to Proof

The Worcester Art Museum has a new art exhibit called "Works in Process: from Print to Proof." It is a very interesting exhibit of wood block, metal, and linoleum prints. I highly reccomend checking this exhibit out.

In this exhibit, there are some prints that have various layers of colored prints incorperated in them and there are prints of just the single color layers. It is a great example to use when teaching certain aspects of layers in Photoshop to students.
There are also some of the orignal print blocks that were used to create the artwork on display.

Snag in Web-Comic

I was not able to get a new page of my web comic Zheph Skyre done today due to some computer issues. I have transferred files and programs from my old computer to a newer, better computer, but I am having issues with my screen. Hopefully I can get it uploaded tomorrow.
