KATHY CRAIG’S EXHIBIT OPENS IN
ERNEST WILLIAMS II SCHOOL OF COMMERCE, ECONOMICS, AND POLITICS
WASHINGTON AND LEE UNIVERSITY
New paintings by Kathy Craig will be on exhibit from February 24th through May 2006, in Washington and Lee University’s Ernest Williams II School of Commerce, Economics, and Politics. A reception will be given on Friday, February 24th from 5-7 p.m. with the artist giving a talk at 5:30 in Huntley Hall, room 221. The public is invited to attend.
The artist states that “the work in this show was all created in the past two years and represents the integration of what I’ve learned from two recent experiences: participation in the New York Studio School’s Drawing Marathon by Graham Nickson and the experience of my ongoing project of trying to learn from the work of Giorgio Morandi. This experience included making studies more or less directly from reproduction of Morandi’s work and more or less concurrently, my own “imitations.”
The artist will have at the talk the actual set-up she used for the painting that appears on the invitational card. The artist feels she learned “quite a bit about how to set up a still life” from studying Morandi so intensely.
Craig has studied with artists from the Maryland Institute College of Art, Piedmont Community College, the McGuffey Art Center, the University of Virginia, and the New York Studio School
The artist’s work was published in the May 2003 edition of the periodical New American Paintings, and in July 2001 she was awarded residency fellowships at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts and the Vermont Studio Center.
She has shown locally in solo and group shows each year at the McGuffey Art Center, as well as three times in the Daily Progress’ juried Paintings from the Piedmont exhibition, winning their achievement award in spring of 2001.
The Williams School of Commerce, Economics, and Politics is open every day from 8:00 a.m. until midnight and admission is free.
