Join the Castellani Art Museum of Niagara University from 2-4 p.m. Sunday, March 2, for "Introduction to Ebru: Turkish Paper Marbling," a hands-on workshop with Gülen Yilmaz.

This workshop is part of the "Master Makers and Players Series," programs held in conjunction with the folk arts exhibition "Extraordinary Ordinary People: American Masters of Traditional Arts" (Feb. 2-June 20). Admission is free.

Gülen Yilmaz began studying the traditional art of ebru as a teenager growing up in Turkey. Now recognized as a master, she has exhibited her work in both Turkey and the U.S., and regularly teaches ebru at the Turkish Cultural Center of Buffalo. In addition to being a dedicated ebru artist and painter, Yilmaz holds a master's degree in linear geometry from Gazi University. Yilmaz has worked as a math teacher in the U.S.

This event is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Space is limited, so pre-registration is required. The program fee is $15 for Castellani Art Museum members and $20 for non-members. To register, contact Dr. Carrie Hertz, curator of folk arts, at 716-286-8290.
