Please join the Department of Art for Pamela Drix's presentation of her recently completed Masters of Fine Arts thesis work, Finding Place: Ken-dai-a. The event will begin at 6.00 p.m. on Thursday, February 13, 2014, and will occur at the Handwerker Gallery, located in the ground floor of the Gannett Center.
Pamela Drix's current artistic practice investigates the place of Ken-dai-a, a Native American site destroyed by General Sullivan during the Revolutionary War, seeking to understand the relationship between place, image, and power, and how they are constructed and portrayed. The work she will be presenting during her artist talk aims to unpack these narratives, to reveal and question the unseen, forgotten, or the silenced narratives of the encoded landscape.
Pamela Drix is co-founder of the Ink Shop Printmaking Center and lecturer for Ithaca College's Department of Art, teaching drawing and printmaking. She earned her BA from Kalamazoo College, an MA in Visual Arts from SUNY Oswego, and an MFA in Visual Studies from Lesley University College of Art and Design. She has shown her work internationally in Berlin, Germany, Osaka, Japan, and Toronto, Canada, Nova Scotia, and numerous galleries and museums throughout the United States.
