WB_20110929_sumiworkshop_main

Sumi is an ancient form of Japanese ink painting that developed from the practice of Japanese and Chinese calligraphy and is spiritually rooted in Zen Buddhism. This special workshop begins with a tour of The Andy Warhol Museum’s The Word of God: Max Gimblett’s Sound Of One Hand Clapping exhibition. The following Saturday, Gimblett will lead a sumi ink studio session using traditional handmade paper, sumi ink, and Asian brushes. Gimblett is a renowned artist and practicing Rinzai Zen Buddhist whose approach to painting embraces both Eastern and Western philosophies, ancient symbols, and the transformation of materials. The last session includes a tour at the Carnegie Museum of Art of Abstract Expressionist paintings and drawings.

Participants do not need to be artists or have any previous experience with ink painting to fully enjoy this workshop.

This workshop is co-presented by The Andy Warhol Museum and Carnegie Museum of Art
