2018 GUILD HAll education Corridor Artist




The 2018 Guild Hall Education Corridor Artist Aubrey Roemer's mural project Blue it! will be on view from November 16 - February 25. Roemer is a textile artist and muralist who has created public installations all over the world using figurative images printed and painted on textiles. Roemer has a long history on the Eastern End of Long Island, often exposing environmental or social issues. She completed a portrait project in 2014, Levithian, during which she painted hundreds of portraits of local Montauk, New York fisherman on fabric, exhibiting them in four different locations in Montauk.
 
Roemer’s mural project Blue It! will draw attention to the health of the intricate waterways surrounding the East End. This three-part project begins with a public beach clean-up in partnership with The Surfrider Foundation. The clean-up will take place at Main Beach in East Hampton on October 20 from 11am-1pm. Materials collected on the beach will be used to expose silhouette imagery onto recycled fabric in the rich blue cyanotype process. The printed fabric created at the beach will contribute to a larger collection of cyanotypes created by Roemer and used in a 30-foot mural in the Guild Hall Education Corridor. Altogether these blue images will amass themselves like the sea, which upon closer examination, will reveal the human-created waste that pollutes it.
