We have been granted special permission to paint Ralston Crawford’s Tugboat from the current exhibition: Ralston Crawford: The Artist’s Eye at the UW Art Museum!
We will guide you step-by-step in an interpretation of this painting that you will take home on a 16″ x 20″ gallery-wrapped canvas. This will take place in the beautiful location of the UW Art Museum. Food & beverage will be catered by UW Catering for your enjoyment.
A portion of this PopUp Paint Party will benefit the UW Art Museum. This is a wonderful way to add a piece of art that you have created to your own home! Thank you to the UW Art Museum for this wonderful opportunity.
This fall, the UW Art Museum presents the exhibition, Ralston Crawford: The Artist’s Eye. Best known for his Precisionist style artwork, this major exhibition of his work revisits Crawford’s image making from the 1950s until his death as he developed his mature style. He worked in a variety of media—painting, printmaking, drawing, photography, and the moving image—considering each completed work as a final work of art. His until now unseen 16mm footage gives witness to his “eye,” his selection process, and his visual choices. The exhibition incorporates works of diverse media in order to understand how he pursued new content and new techniques for his images, simultaneously revisiting familiar subjects.
Ralston Crawford: The Artist’s Eye is presented with three additional exhibitions: Early Work, Drawing and Photographs, and Contemporaries, which provide a broader context within which to explore and understand the artistic work of Ralston Crawford. UW Art Museum curators have worked with the Ralston Crawford Estate to present the exhibition, which explores the artist’s creative process and revisits his place in the art historical record. Special permission was granted for the use of the painting Tug Boat (c. 1930, oil on canvas on board, 7-3/4 x 10 inches) as inspiration for the Art Museum’s first ever Pop Up Paint Party.
