Pierce is Spring Visiting Artist
Brett Eberhardt reported the following:
The Western Illinois University Art Department Visiting Lectures Committee hosted Visiting Artist Stephanie Pierce on Western’s campus at the end of March.
Sourcing common objects such as a bed, window, plant, and radio, Stephanie Pierce’s perceptually based paintings reveal passages of change in search of shifts, connections, and uprisings where the everyday resides in a state of unhinging fragmentation, flux and possibility.
Stephanie received her MFA from the University of Washington in Seattle, BFA from The Art Institute of Boston, and attended the Yale Norfolk Summer School of Art.
Her work has been shown nationally including a solo show at Alpha Gallery, Boston, and in group exhibitions including The Henry Art Gallery, Seattle; Asheville Art Museum, NC; Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects, NY; Space Gallery, Portland; Wynn Bone Gallery, Annapolis; and Argazzi Art, CT. Currently Stephanie lives and works in Arkansas where she teaches at the University of Arkansas.
Stephanie gave a presentation on her work, a drawing demonstration, and led a mixed media drawing workshop in rendering interior space.
This event is also made possible by a generous gift from Patti Hutinger in honor of Scott Hutinger.
