Perspectives: A Neighborhood Photography Workshop with Paige DeVries (Off-Site)

Sat, May 4th at 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

Explore the ways that photography with your phone can be used as an easily accessible, generative art-making tool.

In this off-site workshop with 2023–24 Creative Assembly Cohort artist Paige DeVries, participants will view the artist’s solo show on view at UNO St. Claude Gallery (2429 St. Claude Avenue) and discuss how the artist uses photography from her phone to inform her work as a painter. After the gallery tour and conversation, DeVries leads a photography exercise in the neighborhood surrounding the gallery. Participants will share images they take during the workshop at the end of the program.

Free with advanced registration. Please note that this workshop takes place off-site at UNO St. Claude Gallery (2429 St. Claude Avenue). Participants are asked to bring a phone they can use to take photographs.
