Thursday: Finding Place: Ken-dai-a, artist talk with Pamela Drix | 02/13 - 6.00 p.m.


Contributed by Jenny Stockdale

Handwerker Gallery’s 'artist talk' this Thursday, Feb.13, will feature the recently completed Master of Fine Arts thesis work by Department of Art lecturer Pamela Drix. 

Beginning at 6 p.m. in the gallery’s main lobby, Drix will present Finding Place: Ken-dai-a, illustrating her artistic practice that investigates the place of Ken-dai-a, a Native American site destroyed by General Sullivan during the Revolutionary War.

In her work, Drix is seeking to understand the relationship between place, image, and power, and how they are constructed and portrayed. Her artist talk presentation will aim to unpack these narratives, to reveal and question the unseen, forgotten, or the silenced narratives of the encoded landscape.
