Fresco is primarily an ancient mural technique but in the 20th century, artists started experimenting with that technique, exploring a variety of formats to create frescos that were not on walls. These include methods originally developed to remove damaged frescoes from the walls. Using a variant of the strappo method of attaching burlap to the wall to remove a fresco, artists invented a way to paint on the burlap.

The artists in this exhibition choose toe work in fresco not only for its historic connections but also because of the unique challenges and the specific surface. Fresco painting requires the artist to paint with pure pigments on freshly laid plaster before it dries. One must use a delicate but sure hand. Because the color is bound directly into the surface, when it dries a crystalline surface forms over the color creating a unique quality of light and color. 

Arts at Hudson Guild are supported in part by / public funds from New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Additional support by the Milton and Sally Avery Foundation, Susan and Tony Gilroy, Emily Meschter and Jolie Stahl.
