The Cormorant Area Art Club is presenting the Famous Fauxs Art Show at Essentia Health in South Fargo.
The members of the Club were challenged with the goal of reproducing a famous artist’s painting in a medium different from that used by the original artist.
The Show opened on September 4 and continues through Thursday, October 31.
The works, by Cormorant Art Club members, will be on display at The Atrium at Essentia Health, located at 17th Avenue South and South University, Fargo.
The results are exciting:
• A famous lithograph, Navajo Velvet by R.C. Gorman, reproduced in beautiful stained glass;
• A famous oil painting, Girl in White, Red Background by Henri Matisse, reproduced in water color and acrylic paints;
• The Umbrella Man by one of the world’s first pop artists, Peter Max, reproduced in watercolor and acrylic;
• Katherine Louise by Tom Barnes reproduced using the 2D wool felting technique;
• The Kiss, oil on canvas by Gustav Klint painted now in mixed media; and a Kandinsky painting reproduced in felted wool. These are just a few of the paintings you will see in this exhibit.
