Artist Workshop: Meet So Hee Kim & Luke Mack says
Join Fall 2016 Artists-in-Residence at Ponyride for a FREE interactive arts workshop! All ages are welcome to attend and participate. Supplies and materials will be included, sponsored by Blick Art Materials.

*Event will take place in the loading dock/gallery space on the side of the building.* (Anthology Coffee is open and restrooms are available via their cafe).

Participants are strongly encouraged to bring a small-medium size object(s) and/or photos to use in the workshop to paint on (ie. soccer ball, t-shirts, socks, small toys, etc) and a secret that you would like to share with others.

In this workshop, we will be experimenting means of creating a collaborative painting using the archival materials gathered by the participants. During the first half of the session, we will begin shaping cookies that resemble the objects that we each brought. The cookies will be important archival materials for So Hee Kim’s project (showing on the 25th of Nov at Ponyride), in which she plans to further explore creating a series of functional souvenir using physical debris, photos, and artefacts from her surrounding.

During the second half of the session, we will start sketching and painting and mounting our objects onto a large sheet of a paper, printed with collaged pictures of the local neighbourhood area. We will experiment means of creating two large collective paintings and archival material through the process of drawing out imageries and notes from the individual participants.


Since receiving her BFA in Painting at Rhode Island School of Design in 2015, So Hee Kim has become what she dubs as a “residency-hopper.” She has completed nine different residencies across the world since 2014. The experiences have led to the accumulation of interesting stories and dialogues, attributing to her site-specific installations that she plans to continue to develop in Detroit.

Similarly examining contemporary culture, technique and process, College for Creative Studies alumni Luke Mack’s work is conceptually reflective and carefully composed. With a background and career as a Creative Designer in the automotive industry, his intuitive attention to detail is no surprise and plays a great role in his fine art practice that displays his vastly ranging spectrum of creativity.
