2013-2014 Season

Winter Term 2014


Relationships of the Skin, the Pour and the Paint by Corrine Loomis DIetz

January 8-February 7, 2014

Relationships of the Skin, the Pour and the Paint: Work by Corrine Loomis DIetz

This past summer, the Art Program sponsored an Artist in Residence program, offering the Gretchen Schuette Art Gallery as an on-campus art studio with access to the outstanding art facilities of the college. Corrine Loomis Dietz works in an innovative way with acrylic medium and unusual support materials to create flexible panels of color and form.

The open door policy of this residency allowed individual students and on-campus classes to see a practicing artist at work, to observe innovative techniques being developed and to see the process of art developing over time.  This show will feature the works created in the residency. Read more about the residency in Corrine's words here.

Reception: Jan 8, 12:30-2:30
