Conversations with a Hunter/Gatherer Contributing Artist this Friday, October 24

On Friday, October 24 at 2 pm artist Larry Gawel will be speaking in the University Art Gallery about his contributions to the Hunter/Gatherer exhibit currently on display.

A Nebraska artist, Mr. Gawel’s tintype images document his encounters with the landscape of the plant and animal life he hunts, gathers, and consumes as food. The tintype process he uses is an antique method of capturing photographic images that cuts him off from the latest digital methods. Gawel uses this method to create hauntingly beautiful images of food as the connection between ourselves and our environment.

This event, like all others associated with this exhibition, is free and open to the public. We hope to see you there!
