Artist Talk: Mark Rospenda
Thursday, October 5, 2023 7:00 to 8:00 EDT
Peeler Art Center, Auditorium 

Join us for an engaging artist talk featuring Mark Rospenda and his thought-provoking exhibition, Filter Feeder. The talk will take place at the Peeler Art Center, Auditorium. Mark's work explores the concept of filter feeders, immobile ocean organisms that passively absorb food from their surroundings, drawing a parallel to the human experience of images constantly inundating us without seeking them actively. Through drawings and paper sculptures, Mark's self-portrait as a poetic representation of knowledge and belief raises questions about the fragility of our understanding when faced with moments that challenge our perceptions of reality.

This event is free and open to the public.

Stories about loss, relating to family, class, gender, land and identity– fuel my documentary photography and video works. I believe stories are central to our lives and can aid in dispelling stereotypes, exposing inequity, and illuminating unjust power systems. Stories, chronicles several decades of my documentary work. More information can be found on the gallery website under upcoming exhibitions.

This event is free and open to the public.

Artist Talk: Christie Anderson
Tuesday, March 12, 2024 11:45am to 12:30pm  EDT
Peeler Art Center, University Gallery (upper level)

Join us for an artist talk featuring Christie Anderson about her exhibition. The talk will take place at the Peeler Art Center in the University Gallery (upper level). During covid, the dioramas became a form of escapism, where viewers could pretend to shop in the konbini (convenience store), enjoy having friends over and playing in the kawaii bedroom, crafting in the pastel hobby room, or relaxing outside in the forest. The environments invite viewers into another world and my dolls are the tour guides.

This event is free and open to the public.
