PROGRAMS AND EVENTS

 

Artist Talk + Presentation with Tanya Habjouqa
in partnership with the Middle East Institute

July 28, 6-8 pm
Attendance is Free, however space is limited, please CLICK HERE to RSVP

Join us for a presentation by Palestinian award-winning photographer Tanya Habjouqa who will introduce her series Women of Gaza and Occupied Pleasures. Habjouqa will show her work and tackle issues of representation/misrepresentation and the notion of how top down traditional media has been trampled with social media. She will discuss some of her practices, including the notion of “collaborative portraiture” which she see as a challenge to these top down approaches, and will talk about the stories behind her photographs.

Moderated by Karmah Elmusa, DC-based Palestinian American Journalist and Communications Manager at the Institute for Middle East Understanding.

This program is organized in partnership with the Middle East Institute’s Arts and Culture Program. Recently established, this unique program in the nation’s capital provides a window into the Middle East’s vibrant arts scene and connects Arab artists with their US counterparts. The event is being presented in conjunction with the exhibition She Who tells a Story, showing at the National Museum of Women in the Arts until July 31st. 

 

LIFE DRAWING

Every Monday 
6-9 p.m.
Drop-in (based on availability): Member $10/ Non-Member $12

We are not holding classes during the month of August due to large sculptures in the space and will resume on September 12th. 

The Life Drawing series is an independent figure drawing class that allows students to work from a nude model in your choice of mediums. While skill level is varied, there is no immediate instruction allowing each student to practice their drawing skills at their own pace. The Life Drawing series at Hillyer Art Space is the perfect opportunity to practice your skills and independently work with access to a live model.

While easels, chairs and artistic ambiance are provided by Hillyer, artists are required to bring their own drawing materials. Space will be limited to 30 attendees. Walk-ins are welcome to join if there are seats available.

Interested in modeling? Contact Paul Pietsch at  pietsch_paul@yahoo.com . We are grateful to Paul for his volunteer support of our life drawing series.
