Each winter, Wave Hill opens Glyndor Gallery as workspace for New York-area artists, giving them the unique opportunity to explore the winter landscape as a source of inspiration. Artists share aspects of their practice with the public through hands-on workshops. Workshops begin in Glyndor Gallery with an introduction to the artist’s work, then continue in the Ecology Building or Wave Hill House for the creative activity. During the Winter Workspace, Chad Stayrookcontinues his exploratory narrative video series, creating four short videos that respond to “place” featuring an interplanetary explorer who can only survive in cold winter weather. In his workshop, learn to build sculptures as big as your house with materials you can find in your closet, as Stayrook teaches a technique to bind plastic sheets (garbage bags) together with the use of wax paper and an iron. Each participant will work on his or her own unique shape. At the end, the group will combine all the forms into one giant sculpture that is inflated with a simple fan.
