Denise Kooperman has also spent time exploring Mexico, particularly Oaxaca and the Yucatan and Baja peninsulas. Her textile hangings are wildly colorful, sometimes abstract, such as the sunset in "Puesta del Sol en Baja California," and other times sweetly folksy, such as the old grandmother with steel-wool hair in "Abuela al Mercado."
In the Oct. 10 workshop, which is free and open to the public, Brown will talk a bit about how she got started as an artist at a relatively late age. Most of the session will be devoted to helping participants identify a significant event in their own lives and guiding them through the process of sketching it out retablo-style. Participants may then complete their retablos at home. Advance registration is requested so that all who want to participate can be accommodated.
The exhibit will be on display until Oct. 30. Maxwell Memorial Library is located at 14 Genesee St., Camillus. For more information and to register for workshops, drop by the library or call 672-3661. Information is also online at maxwellmemoriallibrary.org.
