    Having high-quality images is a must for every artist, but can be difficult to obtain. Learn how to capture quality work samples for your next visual arts application to a gallery, museum, or grant (or just for your own records)! This workshop will walk you through this important process. Instructor Da-ka-xeen Mehner will provide demonstrations on these topics:

    • Camera and lights

    • Lighting for different art forms: painting, sculpture

    • File sizes and formats to use and save


    About the Instructor

    Da-ka-xeen Mehner (Tlingit/N’ishga) uses the tools of family ancestry and personal history to build his art. Born in Fairbanks, Alaska to a Tlingit/N’ishga mother and Hippy/American father, his work stems from an examination of a multicultural heritage and social expectations and definitions. In particular his work has focused on the constructs of Native American identity, and an attempt to define the Self outside of these constructs. Mehner has received a number of awards for his work including a 2015 USA Rasmuson fellowship, a 2015 Eiteljorg Contemporary Art Fellowship, and a 2014 Native Arts and Culture Foundation Artist Fellowship.
