On Thursday, March 9, we will be getting to know Tulsa artist RC Morrison. Fascinated by the color and intensity of light, Morrison’s work involves the interplay of the LED, acrylic plastic and found objects. He is a native Oklahoman, has degrees from Oklahoma State University, and became involved with light emitting diodes (LED) about 5 years ago. 

“My work with light emitting diodes (LED) began in 2011 when working on an art installation with my daughter, JP Morrison Lans.  My friend Chris Wollard suggested using LED.  That successful use was the beginning.  My first use of LED in an art piece of my own was for the 2011 TAC 5x5 show.  Since then I have simply followed where the potential of these fascinating little gizmos have led me.  And the array of possibilities has been amazing.  I was delighted to find a group known loosely as Light and Space artists who had been experimenting for years with light as a medium.  The work of James Turrell, who uses both natural and LED light to alter the perception of space, has been a particularly important influence.”

Jim believes this will be one of the most interesting ones he has arranged for us.  “Come to this with an open mind about the possibilities of using LEDS in or around and through your sculpture.  RC has a family connection to one of our members.  Come and find out who!”

That’s 7:00 March 9 at Contemporary Arts Center in the State Fairgrounds.  And bring sculpture to share!

From Kristen Abramson:  Jocelyn Russell and I will be doing a 5-day workshop on beautiful San Juan Island, WA, May 31 – June 4.  Subject will be big cats of your choice: tiger, lion, cougar etc. Armatures and clay provided. We will also have time to whale watch and discover the island. You will want to bring your cameras! Workshop fee is $500. Lodging and food separate. There is a grocery store and many accommodations here on the island, although we plan to fix a meal or two here on the property...Jocelyn loves playing hostess!  She will also be covering monument making, doing patina demos and studio tours. You won't want to miss this opportunity as she rarely does workshops.  Her monument project for the Audubon Zoo in New Orleans is set for installation in April – around 20 life-size animals including elephants and lions!   Questions about the workshop?   E-mail me at PaintedFeatherz@gmail.com.
