Upcoming Fine Art Classes
Fine Art Department
Instructor: Danielle Lawrence
Open assignments encourage students to explore their own material and conceptual interests. Work produced for this class can incorporate the use of traditional materials such as wood, canvas and paint and can extend to video, sculpture, installation, photography and performance. Lectures illustrated by slide presentations will look back to the “painters” of the late 1960s to the early 1970s who set the precedent for painting and mixed media approaches, including Lynda Benglis’ pour paintings, Howardena Pindell’s sculptural grids and Shigeko Kubota’s performance paintings. We will also examine contemporary artists Angela De La Cruz, Katharina Grosse, Jessica Stockholder, Dianna Molzan, Paul Kos and Linda Besemer among others. Readings will provide context for the critical discourse surrounding painting’s formal and conceptual evolution.
