Artist Stephen Buxton gives free lecture at 3:30 p.m. Oct. 23 near Main Entrance
Artist Stephen Buxton will give a free lecture at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 23 in the front entry of the Main building (across from the Cashiers office). His work is on display there through Friday, Oct. 25.
Here is part of his artist statement from David Rothermal Contemporary: “I am a self-taught artist and life’s experience is my classroom. I have dabbled on an academic level exploring every aspect of art such as drawing, painting, ceramics, glass casting and design.
“Using found objects such as sand paper, metal, rubber and ephemera, I construct my images in a very spontaneous and quick process, never overworking the concept at hand. I am very concerned about the issues of shape, placement, balance, color and negative space with the intention of using only minimal material but at the same time allowing for an intricate and detailed composition…”
His lecture is sponsored by SFCC Art on Campus. For information call 428-1501.
