b.1921 - 1999

A prolific photographer of the Southwest from the late 1940s through the late 1980s, Myron Wood is perhaps best known for his work in New Mexico with the Native Americans of Taos Pueblo, with the Catholic Penitente brotherhoods of northern New Mexico and southern Colorado, and for his celebrated photographs of artist Georgia O’Keeffe and her Abiquiu, New Mexico home. Around the Southwest, Wood made a name for himself with photography work funded by the Ford Foundation (1959-63), the Bonfil’s Foundation (1963), the Pueblo Public Library (1973-80), the Waco Foundation (1979), and the Pikes Peak Regional Library (1980). Wood provided photography for five photographic books about the Southwest that he collaborated on with his wife, Nancy Wood, including A Ballad of the West (1963); West to Durango (1964); Little Wrangler (1966); Central City, Colorado, Big Mountain Country (1969), and Hollering Sun (1972). In addition, Wood’s photography was highlighted in Deborah Edge Abele’s The West-side, and Introduction to its History and Architecture (1983) and Christine Taylor Patterson’s O’Keeffe at Abiquiu (1995). Since 1991, the Pikes Peak Library District’s Special Collections has been the home of the Myron Wood Collection, which includes Myron’s negatives, prints, and papers.

Workshop Materials List

1. Clay – Chavant Le Beau Touche. Get the regular clay, not HM (high melt).
2. Clay warming devices, a metal bucket with a clamp on heat lamp or 100 W bulb works great.
3. Tie wire.
4. Aluminum foil.
5. Scissors.
6. Favorite sculpture tools.
7. Plank of wood (pine) approximately 8″ x 8″ x 2″.
Bring as many planks as you wish…the wood is used as the base for your sculpture.
8. Plumber’s pipe, 1/2″ threaded: Bring several different lengths…up to 10″…not PVC pipe.
Plumber’s pipe T joint.
Plumber’s pipe couplers.

10. Wire cutters
11. Needle nose pliers
12. Rubber mallet.
13. Spatula
14. Measuring devices such as rulers, measuring tape, dividers, and calipers.
15. Because we concentrate on BIRDS IN FLIGHT, live models in the classroom are more distracting than useful. I will demonstrate the technique of constructing a cantilevered bird armature that can be used for many different bird species and will show you how to assemble shapes to capture the “gist” of the specific bird.
16. Bird field guides such as Peterson, Stokes, Golden, or Sibley. Sibley’s Guide to Birds (not Sibley’s Guide to Bird Life and Behavior) is best if bringing only one field guide. This popular book can usually be purchased at any bookstore.
17. Bring your laptop to the class if possible.
18. Bring your sketchbook.
