Drawing in Gold & Silver

Saturday, Mar 2, 12-4pm

Learn the medieval art of metalpoint drawing from Jeannine Cook, one of the world’s few modern masters of this ancient pre-graphite drawing technique. Working on prepared paper with silver, gold, or copper, the subtle shimmering slow-art method is deeply meditative and yields stunning tonal results. The practice promotes a state of profound, quiet concentration, partly because of the technique’s slow pace, and partly because of the fact that erasure is impossible. Explore mark-making using not only metal wires and rods in a stylus, but diverse objects such as silver spoons, jewelry, coins, even metal pot scrubbers.

Participants will come away from the workshop with knowledge of how to prepare paper using white, black or tinted metalpoint ground, how to create a tonal drawing range through a variety of mark-making techniques, and how to make use of silver oxidization. Participants will complete several small pieces during the course of the day, and will be ready to carry on independently with metalpoint.

$100*- $110

Jeannine Cook Exhibit: Silverpoint Drawings

Feb - Mar 2019

We’re excited to host an exhibit of Jeannine Cook’s silverpoint drawings while she is visiting the Bay Area for an artist residency at the Chetwood!

Jeannine is one of a small number of artists worldwide who specialize in silverpoint drawing, a shimmering medium of great antiquity in which silver, gold or other metals are employed for mark-making. Using a technique born in the medieval monasteries of Europe, Cook’s meditative art aligns itself with this ancient Western lineage of medieval illuminations while acting as a 21st-century witness. Currently focusing on figurative abstractions inspired by the natural world, Cook’s work is held in the British Museum, the Victoria & Albert Museum, and in public and private collections around the world.
