Eleanor Ray, will be visiting this Tuesday March 1st, 2016 as a part of Marywood University’s Department of Visual Art’s Distinguished Visiting Artist Lecture Series. I have personally been to a few of these and I can honestly say they give you an insight to new techniques and tricks. As an artist, it is important to know the rules before you can properly break them, so learning about how other artists work is always helpful.
On Tuesday, Eleanor’s lecture, (its not like a normal boring lecture, don’t worry) will start at 3:30 pm in the Comerford Theatre with a reception held after in the Shields Center for Visual Arts. You will be able to meet with her after if you please, and be able to check out her work.
Ray’s paintings are on a small scale showing simple compositions of landscapes and interior spaces. They also have a surprising amount of color and light.
If you can make time for this artist talk, go! Events like these are so worth it. Take advantage of all the opportunities you can while you still are a part of this University. I mean who knows the next time you’ll be able to talk to and learn from a successful artist who is just a few steps away on campus?
This event is sponsored by the Marywood University Art Galleries and the Department of Visual Arts. For more information contact Steven Alexander at 570-348-6211, ext. 2691.
