WSU Fine Arts Visiting Artist Lecture Series presents: Mark Dorf

Lecture Thursday, October 19th, 4:30pm in the Fine Arts auditorium (room 5062)

Employing a mix of photography and digital media, Mark Dorf’s work explores the post-analogue experience – society’s interactions with the digital world and its relationship to our natural origins. Dorf scrutinizes and examines the influence of the information age through the combination of photography and digital media, looking at, in his most recent works how we encounter, translate, and understand our surroundings through the filter of science and technology. Mark seeks to understand our curious habitation of the 21st century world through the juxtaposition of nature and the digital domain.

WSU Fine Arts Visiting Artist Lecture Series presents: Jeffry Mitchell


Lecture Thursday, October 5th, 4:30pm in the Fine Arts auditorium (room 5062)

Using a variety of materials and methods, including ceramics, printmaking, and drawing, Jeffry Mitchell manages to juxtapose seemingly disparate ideas into beautiful, fragile, and startling works dealing largely with dualities. Using sweet, furry animals and soft, pastel colors, Mitchell transforms kitsch subject matter into a study of complex human experiences, including death, sex, religion, and loss.
