Lecture / Discussion  |  Two Perspectives on Color: Pigment and Light

Ellen Steinfeld and Shasti O’Leary Soudant

Thursday, April 25, 2013, 7:30–8:45 pm

Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Auditorium  

Join us for presentations by artists Ellen Steinfeld and Shasti O'Leary Soudant with a question and answer period to follow.

Color evokes passion, creates a statement and can easily transform the shape and composition of a sculpture or a painting. Steinfeld’s use of various pigments goes beyond the comfort zones of black, white and gray as seen in her current exhibition, Suspended Motion.

What is light, really? This omni-present, life-giving stuff is taken for granted much in the same way as air, but it is infinitely more complex in the ways it nurtures us, charms us, and cons us. Light, properly wielded, can make you believe anything! So what is it, where does it come from, and how does it work its magic on us? Artist and educator O’Leary Soudant will present in conjunction with her Useum installation, Let There Be Light!
