"How with this Rage shall Beauty hold a Plea?" Panel Discussion and Opening

Artemis, 2018, Cast resin 

It’s an age-old question. Are artists responsible for creating challenging works and addressing critical issues of our time head on? Are other expressions trite or selfish acts of escapism? Or can beauty be powerful? Can the act of creating beauty during a time of ugliness be a form of resistance in itself, offering a vision of all that humans can aspire to?

The exhibition will run from April 26th – May 27th, 2018, a timeframe that includes Westville's Annual Art Walk (May 11th & 12th, 2018). The opening reception will be on Sunday, April 29th, 3-6pm with a panel discussion @ 2pm moderated by Lucy Gellman, Editor of the Arts Paper.

Fully Revealed: Models & Sculptor AMA

No nudity here—but what’s the difference between nude and naked? Have you ever wondered how a figure model gets into modeling? Or what is it like to model for a sculptor? Do they only model, or do they have another job?

Join us for a live AMA (Ask Me Anything) session in Studio 303 with Erik and a few of the models that pose for him. Part of this event will also be broadcast via Instagram Live.

Refreshments will be served.
