Slide Talk and Reception: Tuesday, April 10 at 7:00 pm
Exhibition in Quiet Gallery: April 1 through April 25
Athens artist Gunnar Tarsa will give a slide talk on his artistic journey in the Appleton Auditorium on Tuesday, April 10 at 7:00 pm. He will also create some artwork on the spot! The talk will be accompanied by an exhibition of Tarsa’s work, and there will be a reception with refreshments following the talk.
The exhibition may be seen in the upstairs Quiet Gallery, and will feature Tarsa’s drawings and paintings, focusing on his intricate images, rendered small and large. The exhibition will remain on view through April 25.
Tarsa was born in New Jersey and relocated to Lawrenceville, Georgia. He received his BFA with an emphasis in Drawing from the Lamar Dodd School of Art in Athens, GA which is where he currently lives and works. His methodology of working is through stream of consciousness actions and practiced instincts to hone his ability to create on the spot.
Mr Tarsa’s special guest in this exhibition is Andrea Murillo, who exhibits her sculpture in the display case in the gallery.
The event is free and open to the public.
