Shop talk: 2021 Visiting Artist Series
Saturday, August 28
10am – 12pm MDT
Online session held through Zoom
This summer SNAP has reimagined our Visiting Artist in Residence program to invite 3 print-artists from outside of our community to engage online with SNAP’s membership. Enjoy a studio tour and inside look into each artist’s practice during these online sessions. There will be time to ask questions and have discussions with the artists to connect further.
Tarun Sharma is a visual artist based in Delhi, India and will be SNAP’s final presentation session for the Shop Talk: 2021 Visiting Artist Series. Tarun is a multi-disciplinary artist who works in different mediums: drawing, painting, printmaking, video documentary, and animation. His work is autobiographical and acts as a first-hand documentation of his immediate reactions to address issues and ideas of empathy, helplessness, air pollution, coexistence of human and wildlife, sustainable development, and much more. On Saturday morning, August 28 from 10am – 12pm MDT, Tarun will be showing his artwork and speaking about his alternative at home approaches to printmaking. He will be giving exciting demonstrations of how to create paperless prints by using plaster of paris and mezzotint and collagraph techniques. In addition Tarun will show his detailed woodcut carvings and prints.
All are welcome to join in this online presentation to learn more about Tarun Sharma and to engage in conversation with the artist.
