Constructing a Memory: a Workshop with Joe Fusaro

  • Cotuit Center for the Arts 4404 Falmouth Rd. Cotuit, Ma United States (map)

Construct a memory with collage and mixed-media artist Joe Fusaro, currently showing in our Gallery. Participants in this workshop are asked to bring three or more personal photos (or photocopies of photos) to use in a collage. By manipulating the photographs and drawing or painting into them, we will create a unique work of art that reconstructs a part of our past or family history.

Materials to bring: 
Photographs or photocopies of three or more personal photographs

  • watercolor paints

  • brushes

  • pencils and colored pencils

  • scissors and/or X-acto blades

  • heavy paper (11x14 Bristol is best)

  • optional: markers, acrylic paint

Joe Fusaro creates drawing, painting, collage and mixed-media works inspired by the language of the human figure- examining simple gestures in order to create surprising and simultaneously familiar images.

Fusaro’s paintings begin with initial drawings that transcribe a variety of gestures and get built through layers of marks and calligraphic lines. Mixed-media works, including collages, explore Fusaro’s own photographs, chance imagery and the compression of space in order to initiate new stories and trigger past memories.

Joe Fusaro is the Senior Education Advisor for Art21 in New York, Visual Arts Department Chair for the Nyack Public Schools, and an adjunct professor for New York University’s Department of Art and Art Professions.
