May 9, 2019

Malcolm Zachariah will be our guest presenter for the OKC meeting on May 9. About his work, Malcolm says, "I draw lines between science and art, and I consider nature my guide. Each medium teaches me something different, but I spend most of my time on watercolors, ceramics, and pen drawings. I have a soft spot for the kirigami (cut and folded paper) style I developed over two decades, which reduces biological forms to abstract geometries." Malcolm will lead a hands-on demo of his kirigami technique. Bring plain white copy paper and scissors (the kind for paper, not the kind for fabric!).
