Batik Artist Mary Zlotnick to Speak to the Art League of Leland
April 2 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
The Art League of Leland (ALL) invites artists and art enthusiasts to its Thursday, April 2, 2020, meeting with artist Mary Zlotnick as its featured guest speaker. Zlotnick will discuss batik, an Indonesian art form that dates back 2,000 years. The meeting, which is free and open to the public, will take place from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM at the Leland Cultural Arts Center, 1212 Magnolia Village Way, Leland, NC 28451.
Featured speaker Mary Zlotnick combines batik techniques to create her unique style of batik paintings. After working as a clay artist and teaching classes on the wheel, Zlotnick tried batik when she learned the technique from her mother. Batik uses fabric and melted wax applied with brushes. After the wax is applied, the cloth is immersed into dye; only the unwaxed areas and cracks in the wax accept dye. More recently, Zlotnick began creating silk paintings also using a resist technique.
