Artist talks engage and explore

. . .

Monday, October 6th, 2014

Guest artists, via public artist talks and in-class critiques for BFA majors, engage our students in an interactive process of concept, construction, and critique. The public is welcome to experience our artist talks throughout the winter. All atrium events are free and open to the public.

Sharon Core is a NYC-based photographer who, according to an Elle Decor review of her work, “…piles up armloads of the specimen vegetables, fruit, and flowers that she cultivates in her lush Hudson Valley garden. Period glassware and props complete her meticulously-constructed images, which replicate still-life paintings from the time before her own chosen medium, photography, was even invented.” Core’s image, “1720,” is shown below.
