Artist Talk: Paul Jeanes
The Art + Art History Department is pleased to present a public artist talk by Paul Jeanes on Tuesday, 11/13 at 4:30PM in Larrabee Studio Arts Center (100 Gibson Ave.- near HR).
Paul Jeanes, originally from North Carolina, is the interim Director of the Master of Fine Arts in Studio Art graduate program at the Maryland Institute College of Art, where he has taught for 12 years. He earned a MFA in 2006 from the Hoffberger School of Painting at MICA while studying with noted abstract expressionist, Grace Hartigan. His current body of work consists of paintings, photographs and models that focus on notations of absence and on the enigmatic play of space, color and light. Jeanes’ work has been extensively exhibited along the east coast and in the Baltimore and Washington, DC regions.
As a Visiting Artist at Washington College, Jeanes will spend the full day on campus, speaking with studio art classes and meeting individually with studio art seniors, in addition to the 4:30PM public talk about his work. See more of the artist’s work at www.pauljeanes.com. This lecture is presented as part of the Art + Art History Department’s 2018-2019 Visiting Artist Lecture Series.
Be sure to also see Jeanes’ work in Kohl Gallery in the two-person exhibit, Jo Smail & Paul Jeanes: Clippings, Voids and Banana Curry, on view from November 2- December 9.
All events are free and open to the public, and all are warmly invited to attend.
