Nancy Medina: Workshop in Southern France

Lost in the gardens of
Southern France

My final workshop at Le Vieux Couvent in Southern France will be held June 4-14, 2018. Corinne and Bill are retiring from the workshop hosting life, and I’m honored to have snagged the best month for visiting – during lavender bloom! In all the years I’ve taught at Le Vieux, I’ve discovered some extra and amazing fun things to share with my students that are not on the regular agenda, hidden castles and cappuccino daytrip getaways, and the best places to shop in Sarlat. The list of wonders goes on and on!

You are cordially invited to leave the frantic pace of life behind and explore these ancient gardens with me. Unwind, relax and eat, paint and shop in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Don’t delay, ma cheri! You deserve a retreat for the heart and soul, with paintbrush in hand!

Escape to France Painting Retreat!

*Seats filling quickly, don’t delay!* Limited seating.

Join award winning artist, Chris Brandley, for 10 glorious days of painting, exploring, and immersing yourself into the beautiful French Countryside of the Dordogne Valley. Chris will show you how to use artistic license to paint from the heart by infusing clean, bold color, loose brush strokes and beautiful lighting into your paintings. She will demo in oils, but this retreat is open to those who work in oils as well as acrylics. Chris has over 28 years of experience in both media. In addition, she will show you how to create beautiful watercolor journals to keep as momentums from the trip. This experience is open for all levels of painting from beginners to advanced!

In this small group setting there will be descriptive and detailed step by step demonstrations along with one on one easel time and exercises to learn how to loosen up and create bold, colorful paintings. We will discuss color mixing, composition, brushwork, and more.

There will be plenty of time to relax and absorb the surrounding beauty as well.

Presents Lecture by

Outstanding Architect/Artist Marc Fornes

Tuesday, 29 March 2016 at Magnolia Theatre

Dallas Architecture Forum, a non-profit organization for everyone interested in learning about and improving the architecture, design, landscape and urban fabric of the North Texas region is pleased to continue its 2015-16 Lecture Season with award-winning architect Marc Fornes, whose work intersects the fields of architecture and art. He is the founder of THEVERYMANY™, a New York-based studio engaging Art and Architecture through systematic research and development into applied Computer Science and Digital Fabrication. His prototypical structures and unique organic environments are included within the permanent collections of the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the FRAC Centre in Orleans, France, the Centre National des Arts Plastiques in Sache, France, and in many private collections. He has been exhibited at institutions worldwide including the Guggenheim and has sold work at Art Basel Miami/GGG, Art Paris, Phillips de Pury and Sotheby’s.

Fornes will speak on Tuesday, March 29 at 7 p.m. at the Magnolia Theater in the West Village.

“Marc Fornes is an architect and subject matter expert in computer science who is constantly reinventing the field of Computational Skinning to create large-scale, highly organic and self-supported structures for public outdoor art installations, as well as medium-scaled projects for museum exhibition, retail spaces and personal art collections,” stated Nate Eudaly, Executive Director of the Dallas Architecture Forum. “He was artist-in-residence at the Atelier Calder and his Pop-Up store for Louis Vuitton was awarded an A+ Jury award, as well as the 40th Annual Interior Design Award by the IIDA.  Fornes is a TED Fellow and has been a speaker at many events and institutions including the ArchiLab symposium and MoMA MIND. Together with Francois Roche, he co-created ‘(n)Certainties’, a graduate studio course, at Columbia University, the University of Southern California and Die Angewandte in Vienna. He is currently teaching at Princeton and Harvard Graduate School of Design. With his diverse background in art, architecture, computation, digital fabrication and education, we think Marc Fornes’ presentation will be of great interest to the Dallas community.”

The lecture will occur at 7 p.m. on March 29th, with a complimentary reception beginning at 6:15 p.m. Tickets are $20 per lecture for general admission and $5 for students (with ID). Tickets can be purchased at the door before the lecture. No reservations are needed to attend Forum lectures.

As THEVERYMANY™, Marc has designed and built an extensive body of large-scale, highly-organic and self-supported structures situated between the field of art and architecture, including permanent installations in France, Canada and the United States. Some of these have been acquired and are in the permanent collections of the Centre Pompidou; the FRAC Centre in Orleans, France; and in many private collections. He has exhibited work at the Guggenheim (Contemplating the Void), Art Basel Miami, and Art Paris.

Fornes is a TED Fellow and has been a speaker at many events and institutions including the ArchiLab symposium and MoMA MIND. He was the recipient of an artist residency at the Atelier Calder, and his studio was awarded the New Practices New York by the AIA as well as the Architectural League Prize.

Together with Francois Roche, Marc co-started “(n)Certainties” at Columbia University with visiting semesters at the University of Southern California and at Die Angewandte in Vienna. He has taught at the University of Michigan and he is currently teaching at Princeton and with Patrik Schumacher at the Harvard GSD.
