Artist David Titterington will be traveling from Kansas City to spend July in residence at Surel’s Place. His landscape paintings are grounded in research, and his work aims to grapple with not only physical locations, but with the historical, often tragic, occurrences that happened in those places.
While at Surel’s Place, Titterington will “research and record tragic sites in the Idaho landscape, focusing on the Bear River Massacre, the Teton Damn disaster, the SL-1 incident, The Minidoka War Relocation Center, and the “Gate of Death” at Massacre Rocks State Park. Through the languages of realist landscape painting and religious icon-painting, this series intends to honor these tragic lands as holy lands, and to disturb conventional distinctions between what is sacred and what is shameful.”
Mr. Titterington has done his research on our state, and the review panelists think his residency will be both intriguing and educational for our community.
Drawing means seeing better. In this two-hour workshop, David Titterington will lead participants through several exercises to facilitate a deeper connection to the world around us. Through a warm up, plein air drawing session, discussion, and breathing and blind-contour exercises, you might just leave feeling more in tune with the intuitive side of the creative process. Bring your sketchbook or buy one when you arrive.
