Eleanor RayDistinguished Visiting Artist Lecture Series
The Marywood University Department of Visual Arts DISTINGUISHED VISITING ARTIST LECTURE SERIES presents a lecture by New York painter ELEANOR RAY on Tuesday March 1 at 3:30 pm. This special event will take place in the Comerford Theater at Marywood, and will be followed by a reception in the Shields Visual Arts Center.
The lecture and reception are free and open to the public.
ELEANOR RAY’S paintings are miniature scale carefully observed studies of landscapes and interior spaces, executed in a highly skilled and direct manner. Her paintings are alive with light and color, and her compositions convey a surprising simplicity.
The artist earned her Bachelors degree from Amherst College and her MFA from the New York Studio School. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including a fellowship from the New York Foundation for the Arts, and residencies at the BAU Institute in France, Dumfries House in Scotland. She also received a prestigious Purchase Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Her work is represented by Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects in New York City.
The Marywood University Department of Visual Arts takes great pleasure in hosting this important and valuable lecture. Audience members will have an opportunity to meet the artist at the reception immediately following the talk. This event is sponsored by the Marywood University Art Galleries and the Department of Visual Arts.
