Reserve a ticket to participate in an outdoor Stencil Workshop with Jeremy Novy on Saturday, July 30, 1-3 PM at Voss Gallery! This class will provide participants with an insightful overview about the history of stenciling and other revolutionary acts of street art as seen in ancient and contemporary art. Participants will also gain a basic understanding of how to design, cut, and spray their very own reusable stencil to take home that day.
Only 10 tickets are available for this hands-on experience; supplies are included with ticket purchase. Guests may also enjoy our current exhibition featuring new sculptures and drawing by Gale Hart—in addition to a curated selection of regional artists in the gallery’s lower level space [The Down Low]. Please arrive on time to ensure a smooth experience for all parties.

Jeremy Novy’s (b. 1979) unique brand of street art is ripe with thoughtful social examinations. Novy has combated a homophobic lack of representation with a celebration of gay iconography, bringing joviality and warmth to disused urban spaces. With a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, he curated the first major exhibition of its kind, “A History of Queer Street Art,” premiered in San Francisco in 2011 and later toured to Pop Up Gallery in Los Angeles and Yale University.
Since graduating from Pecks School of the Arts, Novy’s art has been met with acclaim across the country. His work has benefited non-profit foundations, advocacy organizations, and community service programs and has been featured in numerous films, books, publications, and collections public and private. His stencil work is cogent in its messaging and remarkably complex for its compositional simplicity—like the koi fish of his most-established series which, floating beneath the surface of concrete, refer to anti-authoritarian coded symbols in Chinese art under communism. His pioneering images of drag queens, physique pictorials, and pornography bring to life the multiplicity of modern identity, reminding us that we, each of us, must walk the streets of our cities in collective solidarity.
