Visiting Artist Talk and Demo
with Andie Thrams

California artist Andie Thrams is well known for her gorgeous painted books. She works in the wild, often remote, western forests creating a collection of illuminated field journal pages that chronicle forest experiences with drawing, painting, and writing. Andie will be visiting Portland and we hope you'll join us to hear more about her work and see her demonstrate the unique techniques that make her books so special. Andie was featured in our recent Book Power show here at 23 Sandy.

Color Mixing Magic: The Autumn Color Palette
A Workshop with Andie Thrams
Sunday, November 14
10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

If you've forgotten, never knew, or just want to delve more deeply into the language of color, come and find out how to get the colors you seek down on paper with ease and pleasure. We'll work both systematically and intuitively, to create a beautiful color wheel and complete other studies. Our experiments will focus on the autumn palette, inspired by fall subjects such as leaves, acorns and fungi. This workshop will deepen your awareness of how colors interact, what colors you are drawn to, and demonstrate how to make use of this powerful knowledge in future projects. $95 including materials. For more info, a supply list and registration please contact Andie directly at (530) 647-6947 or
