Join artist Caroline Roberts for an artist talk and image-making workshop in conjunction with the exhibition Contact: Making Images Using the Cyanotype Process.

Focusing on the relationships between civilization and the natural world, Roberts uses a combination of historic alternative photographic techniques and musicological display tropes to instigate conversation about the human desire to classify and control nature. Roberts often utilizes materials gathered from nature to construct her cyanotype images, drawing from the landscapes near the sites wherein her works are exhibited. 

Following Roberts’s talk, guests are invited to use natural materials such as flowers, leaves, twigs, and flora collected in Houston to create unique cyanotype prints inspired by Caroline Roberts’s art practice. The workshop is free and open to the public, and all materials are provided. Guests are welcome to bring their own natural materials to use during the workshop.

Registration is not required but is encouraged.
