Join Transformer this Saturday February 16, at 2pm
for an artist talk with Richard Chartier and Paul Vinet. Exhibition runs through March 8, 2008
Transformer presents an informal conversation between artists Richard Chartier and Paul Vinet, facilitated by Transformer Board Member, Ryan Hill, Manager of Interpretive Programs and Curatorial Research Associate for the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Smithsonian Institution.Incorporating distinctly different approaches to covering, and conversely, revealing layers of action/inaction in their work, Richard Chartier and Paul Vinet each intentionally obscure and highlight specific aspects within their paintings, focusing the viewer on details that bring out formal structures while hinting at underlying narrative.
During Saturday's artist talk, Richard and Paul will discuss their unique styles and artmaking practices. In addition to answering questions posed by moderator Ryan Hill, the artists will answer audience questions about their work.
This event is free.
