Tonja Torgerson | Succumb
June 25 @ 1:00 pm - August 20 @ 5:00 pm
Reflections on vulnerability, death, and the impermanence of the body. Torgerson uses prints, cut paper, and collage to create a fallen Garden of Eden in which life-size figures grapple with the recognition of their mortality. These works provide an intimate pause in which to consider the frailty of the body; allowing us to dwell on uncomfortable truths.
Cider Gallery, 810 Pennsylvania St., is open to the public from 1-5 pm Tuesday-Friday, June 25-August 21.
The goal of the Lawrence Art’s Center’s project-based residency is to help support, sustain, and foster artistic growth by providing material support for the development of special projects. With an emphasis on interdisciplinary and community-oriented work, the project-based residency strives to assist artists working in any discipline and generating works competitive on a national scale.
The duration of the project-based residency is flexible, spanning from two weeks to three months, during which time housing can be provided. Selected artists will receive up to $300 toward materials. Artists will have use of studio space at the Lawrence Arts Center during established times.
The Lawrence Arts Center is staffed with experts in each of our program fields, as well as arts professionals, and two annual artists-in-residence in printmaking and ceramics who can prove invaluable resources and energetic studio co-inhabitants for short-term residencies.

2021 Project-Based Artist in Residence
Printing with Polyester Plates — Lithography is a magical medium that allows a drawing to be reproduced in multiples and a variety of colors. This workshop will showcase the unique benefits of polyester plate lithography, an affordable form of printmaking that requires minimal processing and equipment. In this two-day workshop, you will learn about the medium, get the materials to draw on your plates from home, and then can come back the next day to make your own lithograph prints! No previous experience in printmaking needed, just the desire to make a drawing and see how it can be transformed into prints. Join and learn the alchemy of lithography! The hours for this workshop are Sat 1-3 PM and Sun 1-5 PM.
