Hosted Event  |  Nor'easter Conference: Aesthetics and Practice in Cast Iron Art

Wednesday, November 14, 8 am–Saturday, November 17, 2012 10 pm

The Nor'easter Conference asserts a clear and determined focus on Aesthetics and Practice in Cast Iron Art.

In conjunction with the Albright-Knox Art Gallery and the Burchfield Penney Art Center, it gives Buffalo State College great pleasure to announce that renowned international sculptor, Beverly Pepper, will commence the artist lecture series. Pepper began sculpting in the sixties along with artists David Smith, Alexander Calder and Arnaldo Pomodoro, and has received several prestigious awards through the years. Her works have been exhibited and collected by major museums and galleries throughout the world.

Also included in this lecture series are artists Jay Wholley and Jene Highstein, as well as writer and performer Nor Hall who penned "Irons in the Fire."

There are three exhibition sites: the Burchfield Penney Art Center (interior gallery and exterior grounds), the Big Orbit Gallery, and the Czurles-Nelson Gallery at Buffalo State College.
