IFA Lecture tomorrow/Ridley Howard

Nov 5 2013 1:00PM – 2:30PM

CBS Auditorium

Ridley Howard

Visiting artist lecture series hosted by the Interdisciplinary Fine Arts program in the School of Art.

Ridley Howard’s psychologically taut works reveal an artist that easily incorporates the vernacular of vastly different genres of painting; among them, high renaissance, pop art and abstraction. Subtle and deceptively straightforward, the paintings invoke a sense of monumentality while still retaining a lingering intimacy. Howard is based in Brooklyn, N.Y. He received a BFA from the University of Georgia and an MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. He has received awards from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, the Joan Mitchell Foundation and the New York Foundation for the Arts. He is represented in New York by Leo Koenig Inc.
