Studio Squared: Around the Table with Aaron Fowler
Studio Squared is a series of informal art-making workshops aimed at making a wide range of studio practices accessible to adult audiences. Each workshop focuses on a particular theme and creative process inspired by our exhibitions, and explores methods of creative production through an experiential approach.

Designed to engage the concept of the collective around the hallmark of Thanksgiving, this edition of Studio Squared invites exhibiting artist Aaron Fowler to build upon his most recent body of work which explores the notion of triumph through pilgrimage. The program will begin with a tour of his deeply personal work included in A Constellation, during which Fowler will discuss the experiences surrounding his own pilgrimage from St. Louis to New York. The program will then move into the Museum's workshop, where participants will gather around the table and translate their communal experiences into drawing studies of those seated across from them. Fowler will then guide participants in collaboratively rendering these individual portraits in acrylic paint onto a large, shared canvas framed by the Thanksgiving dinner table motif.

Aaron Fowler (b.1988, St. Louis MO) is a painter who lives and works in New York. He received his MFA in 2014 from Yale University School of Art and his BFA in 2011 from Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. Pulling from reality and imagination, Fowler's work describes certain conditions of the human experience, and memorializes individuals who are important to him. Using discarded materials from his immediate environment, Fowler communicates ideas about transformation, community, and salvation. Metaphorical imagery symbolize those who are left to navigate the world with the tools society has left for them, and those who get stuck in its constructs. Growing up in St. Louis, Fowler often references issues he has experienced from his personal history. By building on stories from his past, and using the materials and experiences in his present, Fowler's work becomes a proposition for a political and social re-imagining of not only where he comes from, but also the society where we all are.

Come and join fellow art-enthusiasts in this fun and informal hands-on workshop that inspires the maker in all of us! Refreshments will be served and art supplies provided!
