Including Text in your Art with Sarah Cummings Truszkowski

The Art Gallery of Regina presents a one-day text-based, painting workshop with Sarah Cummings Truszkowski. Truszkowski will lead you through meaningful ways to include text in your artwork. You will use acrylic paints and incorporate text from your own life and inspiration. Citing examples of the incorporation of text in contemporary art, Sarah will address the multiple uses and long history of the relationship of the written word to images. Participants will explore how words can indeed create bold, beautiful, relevant artwork, or alternately how words can discreetly frame or act as a backdrop for an image. Participants will work with a variety of techniques such as stencils, freehand, basic printing, and cursive to render and enhance the impact of words or phrases with personal meaning, with the production of one to two original artworks as their aim.

Sarah Cummings Truszkowski (she/her) is a contemporary artist who has been painting for over twenty years. She moved from the suburbs of Ottawa to Regina in 2007 and works as an artist, activist, community volunteer, and mother to her three children. Her work focuses on motherhood, beauty, femininity, personal agency, equal rights, and the cultural histories of women. Known for her paintings of pink roses and text, she experiments creatively and speaks up against injustice through her art and life.
