Let’s Make Gelatin Prints!

untitledThe Harlow Gallery’s Education Committee hosts SECOND SUNDAYS, a monthly series of free community art-making events sponsored by The Bank of Maine.

September’s Second Sunday event is “Gelatin Prints” lead by Lisa Wheeler. On Sunday, September 13 from 2 to 4 p.m. the public is invited to the Harlow Gallery, located at 160 Water Street in Hallowell for gelatin printing; a versatile, experimental hand printing process that yields exciting surprises! Artists of all ages will create a collection of colorful monoprints layering colors, textures and images. Come with a sense of adventure and see what unfolds!

Lisa Wheeler manages arts programming as the education program coordinator at Common Street Arts in Waterville. A graphic designer and printmaker, Lisa has exhibited monoprints in solo and group shows throughout central Maine and has original pieces in collections at the University of Maine at Augusta and Maine General’s new Regional Hospital.

Mark your calendars and look forward to activities on the second Sunday of every month at the Harlow. These events bring artists and art lovers together to enjoy the process of making art as well as looking at art and discussing it. Most events are perfect for families, and all are welcome. Children under 10 MUST be accompanied by an adult. These sessions take place every 2nd Sunday from 2 to 4 pm at the Harlow Gallery, and are free and open to the public. Some materials are provided, but participants are encouraged to bring their own as well. Let’s get creative!
