Pioneering Painter Alma Thomas Is Making a Comeback 30 Years after Her Last Major Retrospective

Interviewed that same year by The New York Times, the artist, who grew up in Columbus, Georgia, before settling in Washington, D.C., said: “One of the things we couldn’t do was go into museums, let alone think of hanging our pictures there. My, times have changed. Just look at me now.” Thomas, who achieved widespread recognition late in her lifetime for her colorful, exuberant abstract paintings, is once again in the spotlight after slipping from the mainstream art-historical canon following her death in 1978.

Susie will pick your flax from her orchard in August (2016) so it has time to dry. But don’t worry, she’ll talk you through the process of planting the seeds, rippling and retting the stems so they are ready to be spun. You’ll start by making preparations to the flax stems to prepare them for spinning, this will include revealing the flax fibres, removing the pith, combing them and finally winding them so you can tease off the fibre to produce the yarn.

Understanding Camera Lenses. Understanding camera lenses can help add more creative control to digital photography.

Understanding Camera Lenses

Choosing the right lens for the task can become a complex trade-off between cost, size, weight, lens speed and image quality. This tutorial aims to improve understanding by providing an introductory overview of concepts relating to image quality, focal length, perspective, prime vs. zoom lenses and aperture or f-number. All but the simplest cameras contain lenses which are actually comprised of several "lens elements. " Each of these elements directs the path of light rays to recreate the image as accurately as possible on the digital sensor. The goal is to minimize aberrations, while still utilizing the fewest and least expensive elements.

Optical aberrations occur when points in the image do not translate back onto single points after passing through the lens — causing image blurring, reduced contrast or misalignment of colors (chromatic aberration).

London, W. and J. Innys, 1727. Do you remember the good old days when students read for a degree? Well, I don’t know how much proper reading they do these days – i.e. that which involves actually touching and turning the pages of a book or research article (but which is probably nowadays forbidden on health and safety grounds – well, you never know what disease you might pick up from a multi-accessed textbook… and paper cuts can really hurt…).

Because of that, much of the Swiss-German Bauhaus-associated painter’s work, which at its most distinctive defines its own category of abstraction, still exudes a vitality today. And he left behind not just those 9,000 pieces of art (not counting the hand puppets he made for his son), but plenty of writings as well, the best known of which came out in English as Paul Klee Notebooks, two volumes (The Thinking Eye and The Nature of Nature) collecting the artist’s essays on modern art and the lectures he gave at the Bauhaus schools in the 1920s. “These works are considered so important for understanding modern art that they are compared to the importance that Leonardo’s A Treatise on Painting had for Renaissance,” says Monoskop.

Things on my Desk. The new year is upon us (if you follow the Gregorian Calendar) and it’s really exciting to look into the new year plans. I myself will be starting a new project imaging both plants and fishes that are invasives within the Great Lakes region of North America. Earlier I had posted a fish of a paddlefish and someone asked if they were indeed invasive. I guess I should clarify that not everything I photograph will be invasive. The idea is to photograph everything in a genus if that genus includes a species that is invasive. Magical-Secrets: A Printmaking Community. Sonya Philip. Linday Taylor Embriodered Art Portfolio.
