Features "My First Art Teacher" Images
|What would happen if prominent artists were asked to depict their
first art teacher? Well, the question has been asked, the results are in, and they are
entertaining, creative, and definitely thoughtful.
During the summer of 2001, several
outstanding artists from various media were asked to reflect on their early art education
and create a work titled "My First Art Teacher." Responses came from Nigeria,
Russia, Taiwan, and all around the United States. They came from seasoned illustrators,
students, teachers, and retirees.
The shows opening reception will be held February 27, from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Show hours are Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. through March 16.
