The Cormorant Area Art Club is presenting the “Famous Fauxs” Art Show. 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 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.
The Cormorant Area Art Club was established twenty three years ago and meets regularly at the Cormorant Community Center in Cormorant Village, MN. It is a regional art club with members from Fargo-Moorhead-West Fargo, ND, Hawley, Audubon, Dent, Lake Park Detroit Lakes, Pelican Rapids and Fergus Falls, MN.
