Harnischfeger is artist of the month

Holly Harnischfeger is the November artist-in-residence at the Cedarburg Cultural Center.

Harnischfeger will demonstrate her art from noon to 4 p.m. on Nov. 1, 3, 5, 8, 10, 15, 17, 22 and 29.

She will also offer a workshop, “Art and Fear: Embracing an Empty White Canvas,” from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 12.

Harnischfeger has embraced a wide variety of media in her art, from wheel throwing to mixed media painting and using charcoal, acrylic and encaustic wax.

She earned a bachelor of fine arts degree from the University of Colorado in 1977. For years she worked in wheel throwing, clay slabs and tiles but in 2000, she transitioned to painting.

Currently, Harnischfeger is working in mixed media. She believes that by combining the different media she can capture the essence of her vision.

Harnischfeger, who resides in Milwaukee, continues to make, teach art and create instructional content as an art retreat producer in Wisconsin and Carmel, Calif.

Her workshop will provide students with options for approaching a blank canvas. They will receive hands-on instruction in using a photo transfer technique to get started on paints, vine charcoal, pastels and other media.

All supplies are included. To register or for more information, visit www.CedarburgCulturalCenter.com.

The center at W62 N546 Washington Ave. is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and noon to 4 p.m. Sundays.
