Zoom into Contemporary Artists’ Studios this Fall
Cost $10 per visit
Rockland Center for the Arts (RoCA) continues its mission of enrichment through the arts with artists’ studios tours: LIVE and interactive! This Fall you’ll get the rare opportunity of stepping into some incredible artists’ spaces to get a glimpse of where and how they make their art, learn about their inspiration and process, and experience where the creation happens! These studio tours will be conducted over Zoom. Visit www.rocklandartcenter.org for details and dates. Zoom information will be sent upon registration for all classes.
On Tuesday, December 8th, at 6pm, Mary Ting will give a studio tour. Come to the Zoom with a cocktail. Mary Ting is a visual artist working in installation, drawing, sculpture, and community projects that examine cultural history, grief, nature, environmental and social justice. Her varied work reflects on our stories – our devotions and desperations. Mary’s work all begins with her drawing.
A two-time recipient of the New York Foundation for the Arts fellowship, 2016 Joan Mitchell Center New Orleans Residency, 2016 Lower Manhattan Cultural Council In Process Residency, 2010 Gottlieb Foundation individual grant, Lambent Fellowship, Pollock Krasner Foundation among others. Residencies include MacDowell Colony, Lower Eastside Printshop Special Editions, Dieu Donne Papermill Workspace, and others.
Mary Ting currently teaches at CUNY John Jay College in the studio art department and the Sustainability and the Environmental Justice Program. She is also faculty at The Transart Institute MFA Program, New York/Berlin. The crazed ravaging of the earth, the displacement of vulnerable communities and pending extinctions is what keeps her up at night and also awakens her in the morning. She is currently researching and writing about Chinese Modern History, Trauma, and the Lust for Endangered Species Parts. She has presented at the Asia for Animals Kathmandu 2017, On Changing Human Behavior at the Jane Goodall Institute, Nepal; UC Davis, Donkey Welfare Symposium 2018; Thinking Animals 2018, St. Catherines, Ontario and at the Explorer’s Club, NYC 2019.
