"Figurative Association Symposium 2018"
November 7-10, 2018
2018 Figurative Association Exhibition
October 20, 2018 - January 12, 2019 - Sandra Blain Gallery
The symposium will be an event with many parts. At the core, 2018 will feature ten presenters – Jessica Calderwood, Michael Dixon, Judy Fox, Richard W. James, Curt LaCross, Stephanie Metz, LJ Roberts, Claire Stigliani, Kensuke Yamada, and Sunkoo Yuh. These ten artists, working from ceramics to embroidery, painting to enamels, will provide lectures and demonstrations across two full days. Before those days, however, the event kicks off on Wednesday with an opening reception to the 2018 Figurative Association Exhibition featuring work from all of the presenters, plus selected invited artists as well as our New Forms: Juried Student Exhibition. We are also excited to have sculptor Beth Cavener give the keynote opening address after the reception! In addition to the demonstrations and exhibitions, the event will also have panel discussions, additional lectures from guest speakers and rapid fire Quick Sketch presentations which allow for artists and makers to present their work and research.
