Make your own flag at Prairie Gallery and march with it in Northside’s 4th of July parade with the aid of artists Katie Parker and Guy Michael Davis. Parker and Davis will conduct a hands-on workshop beginning at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, featuring a die-cutting press to create assembled paper sculptures. The “flags,” which will relate to Parker’s large wall collages currently on view at Prairie, are to be finished in time for their creators to show them off in the famous holiday parade.
Participants can also take a look at the objects in Parker and Davis’ exhibition, which refer to traditional home décor in surprising ways. Cut silhouettes are among their idea sources. Reservations are required for the workshop; call 513-703-5729 to reserve your spot. There is a charge of $15 for materials. Good fun for ages 10 and older, including grandparents. Prairie Gallery is on the second floor at 4035 Hamilton Avenue, Northside.
