Sheen Center Artist Residency and Risograph Printmaking at the Queens Museum

On Friday, July 1, 2016, DOEprojekts (Deborah Adams Doering and Glenn N. Doering) began working as "Artists in Residence" at the Sheen Center for Thought and Culture in the NoHo neighborhood of New York City.
Goals for the DOEprojekts' residency include preparing works for their 2017 solo exhibition in the Sheen Center Gallery at 18 Bleecker Street (entrance on Elizabeth Street). The exhibition is titled "Migrations" and will feature works that explore Coreforms and Keywords related to movements that occur when migrating peoples and cultures connect and/or collide. 
On July 9 and 10, Deborah and Glenn participated in the risograph printmaking workshop at the Queens Museum. The workshop allowed participants to learn more about risograph printmaking and also about the unique print-on-demand Queens International 2016 Catalog that allowed for post-opening contributions by a variety of commentators.

The workshop was led by Ayham Ghraowi, arist/designer of the Queens International 2016 Catalog, and artist/designer Martin Bek. Ghraowi, Bek, and Queens Museum Director of Exhibitions and Curator, Hitomi Iwasaki, were also on hand to support DOEprojekts' Coreforms and Keywords experimental prints -- we thank everyone at Queens Museum for providing us with educational and enjoyable sessions! 
DOEprojekts will lead a number of art-making workshops (see photos above) and participatory events as part of the Sheen Center residency and solo exhibition. If you would like to participate in an upcoming art-making workshop, please email

"Coreforms" at Swedish Covenant Hospital, Chicago

Swedish Covenant Hospital (SCH) in Chicago is committed to offering those persons who are on the road to healing a variety of creative experiences, including opportunities to explore visual art. Curator and artist Kari Lindholm-Johnson contacted DOEprojetks (Deborah and Glenn Doering) over a year ago and suggested introducing our "Coreforms" to participants in SCH's arts group. 

The result is "Coreforms of Life," an exhibit sponsored by SCH, that explores a dialogue between Coreform drawings created by DOEprojekts and drawings created by persons at SCH who are interested in creating a personal visual response to the Coreforms' "zero-and-one-in-movement," often in relationship to their own healing journey. We are very pleased to have Kari and her group use "Coreforms" as a point of departure and an invitation to interact -- in the service of healing and creative expression!

We thank Swedish Covenant Hospital, Kari Lindholm-Johnson, and the artist-participants who allowed us to photograph their drawings!
