Lighthouse Works Together offers on Island programs

Fishers Island clay whistle chorus with Lighthouse fellow.

While our Fellowship Program is on pause, we are pleased to announce a new initiative at Lighthouse Works.

Through a series of three programs, Lighthouse Works Together will connect our Fellowship Program’s alumni with our island community to encourage moments of creativity, curiosity, and togetherness – even as we remain apart.

Workshops Hosted via Zoom, these art-making workshops will be designed and led by members of our alumni group. Each 15-student workshop, developed for Teens, Young Adults, and Adults, will utilize a kit that will be available for pickup at Lighthouse Works. Workshops will run twice-a-month through the end of the year, and will include:

  • a group “craft” class
  • time for offline experimenting and making
  • individualized online follow up with the workshop’s instructor
  • a group show-and-tell

Wonderings We’ve asked past fellowship recipients to create guided individual or family activities based around something they found compelling during their time on Fishers Island. Posted weekly, these activities will encourage you to look, think, and make in the environs of FI.

Coffee Talks Join us for a series of Virtual Studio Visits, hosted twice-a-month by Program Director, Tryn Collins, to catch an intimate view of what is happening in the studios of some of your favorite past fellows.

We all want to find ways to connect even at a distance.  At Lighthouse Works, we believe that artists and art can help bridge this gap, and we hope that our entire island community will feel encouraged to join us.

The Cameraless Photo w/ Kim Hoeckele (’18)
In this workshop, we will make hands-on photographs without the use of a camera. Using gathered objects and materials, participants will experiment with line, shape, texture, pattern, and space to create unique photographic compositions on light-sensitive material in the sun. Workshop materials are non-toxic and will be available for pick up at Lighthouse Works starting on Tuesday, May 19, 2020.
