Bart O’Reilly (MFAST ‘12): Guest Artist Lecture at McDaniel College

On Thursday, September 14 at 7:00 p.m. Bart O’Reilly will give an artist lecture at McDaniel College. The event will be held in in Peterson Hall, Room 104.

McDaniel College is located at 2 College Hill in Westminster, MD 21157.

“My work is concerned with the actions of time, light and human activity on places and their objects,” says O’Reilly.  “Within this framework I try to open a space for imaginary and poetic intervention.  Using physical objects or specific places I explore their history and materiality.  A claim to truly know or understand seems at best arrogant and at worst extremely dangerous.  I try to explore the slippage between what we perceive and what we claim to know.”

Davin Watne (MFAST ’13) featured in solo exhibition at Western State Colorado University

With the upsurge of images being generated by photojournalists and social media outlets alike, Davin Watne’s Picture the Wall combines appropriated images, plein air paintings, and graphic depictions of flags to consider contemporary methods of representing nationhood, history, and contemporary American life.

The history of oil painting is steeped in the rhetoric of power. Evidenced by painters like Jacques-Louis David, who created public relations campaigns for political figures like Napoleon, and Gilbert Stewart, who painted the iconic portrait of George Washington. Drawing from this legacy, Picture the Wall employs the same visual language to interrogate how we understand our contemporary times and our social landscape through the images produced today.

Picture the Wall will be on view through February 17, 2017 at Quigley Gallery, Western State Colorado University in Gunnison, CO.

Artist’s lecture will take place at Kincaid Concert Hall on Thursday, January 26, 2017 at 12:30pm.
