Feed your mind, try your hand with Mia Rosenthal

Rosenthal's "Google Portrait of Philip Guston"
  • Rosenthal's "Google Portrait of Philip Guston"



If I were lucky enough to be able to take the Arkansas Arts Center's class with Philadelphia artist Mia Rosenthal on Saturday (Sept. 13) I would ask her to describe the power of the drawn line. I've never been able to put it into words for readers. 

Rosenthal, whose work is part of the "12th National Drawing Invitational: Outside the Lines" exhibit at the Arts Center, makes tiny line drawings over large spaces; the Arts Center is purchasing the work above, "Google Portrait of Philip Guston." From her website:

The question I am most often asked about my work is ‘How long did this take to make?’ The true answer is ‘a little bit every day.’ Each drawing I make is built from an accumulation of marks, and the process of building, adding and layering marks, feels like an authentic way to make a drawing. It is like making a thing using atoms or cells or bits, small pieces gathered together to make a whole. I use drawing as a way to slow down and carefully study the world around me – to understand, process and organize information and turn thoughts into a visual object.

Maybe Rosenthal, a 2014 Leonore Annenberg Fellow, will answer my question on Friday (Sept. 12) when she gives the "Feed Your Mind " lunchtime talk at noon. 

Saturday's drawing workshop with Rosenthal runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (tuition $56 members, $70 nonmembers, lunch on your own). Read more about the artist on the Arts Center's excellent website on the drawing invitational, which goes down Oct. 5, here. To sign up for the class, call 396-0354. There's a limit of 12 students.
