ARTIST LECTURE: Pete Schulte
January 26 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
The Sarah Moody Gallery of Art presents a lecture by Professor Pete Schulte on Thursday, January 26, 2023, 3:00 p.m., in the Camellia Room (2nd floor) of Gorgas Library. After the lecture, a reception will follow in the gallery.
Professor Schulte will talk about the new SMGA exhibition, Yevgeniya Baras and Pete Schulte, which brings together his and the work of artist Yevgeniya Baras for a dialogue on abstraction, line and color in contemporary painting and drawing. At first glance, the artists’ works seem diametrically opposed: Schulte’s subtly-hued graphite drawings contrast with Baras’ built-up, color-rich paintings. In the process of developing the exhibition, essayist Avila Edmonds-Doberenz writes, “the artists discovered the similarities that lie between their creative processes. They found that many foundational ideas central to their practice corresponded with each other.”
