First Person, Twice Removed:
Artist talks with Claire Lesemann, Jessica Warner, & Melissa Zarem
Thursday, March 28, 6.00 p.m.
Gannett Center, Ithaca College
Come get a behind-the-scenes look at the studio practices and processes of local artists Claire Lesemann, Jessica Warner, & Melissa Zarem, whose work is currently on view at the Handwerker Gallery through April 12. The artists will give short informative presentations followed by a Q&A and an opportunity to walk around the gallery. This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments served.
The practices of Claire Lesemann, Jessica Warner, and Melissa Zarem negotiate the experience of their environments using abstraction to mediate between real and imagined life. All use observation in their practice but do not render from it dutifully, straying from the fold of realism with phenomenological intention. Iterated from individual perception, but employed with imagination, thought, emotion, intuition, and desire, the works in this exhibition invite a rich and varied discourse and an array of interpretation.
All Handwerker Gallery events are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, 10.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m.; Thursday, 10.00 a.m. to 9.00 p.m.; and weekends, noon to 5.00 p.m.. The gallery is closed to the public on Tuesdays unless otherwise specified for an event but can accommodate group or class visits by appointment.
