Shadow Portraits/Shadow Films: 

Somewhere Between Darkness & Light


On Wednesday January 27th 2016, Art Club designed a space for the community to explore shadows and create art at the Tompkins County Public Library.

Together, we created portraits and films at three art-making stations: 

  • Shadow Self Portraits --hand traced silhouettes were decorated with your own unique "headdress"

  • Life-size Shadow Puppet Theater --your bodies became human shadow puppets with costumes, masks and movement

  • Abstract Object Shadow Theater --boxes of knickknacks and curios were set up to manipulate and explore the play between shadow and light

All art was created for your very own community art exhibition on First Friday Gallery Night on February 5th 2016. 

*We would like to send out a sincere thank you to the Tompkins County Public Library for providing a venue and partial funding for this event.
