Printmaker Debora Oden, an instructor at the Savannah Institute of Art & Design, will reveal the personal story behind her artistic process in a fun (and sometimes irreverent) gallery talk on July 1, from 5 – 7 pm at the Peninsula School of Art in Fish Creek.
Oden’s presentation underscores her participation in the current exhibition at the school, “Medium is the Message,” which provides a behind-the-scenes look at an artist’s medium of choice and how it informs their work.
In addition to her large-scale prints, which span up to 11 feet, the artist’s presence in the gallery is enhanced by a short video detailing the inspiration behind her work, as well as her love of the printmaking process. Her four-day printmaking workshop, scheduled at the end of June, has been sold out.
Among Oden’s many awards are the Vreeland Award for Fine Art, and the Triennial Prize at the Egyptian International Print Trienniel in Cairo. To view her work, visit http://www.lifesizepress.com.
The gallery talk is $5 per attendee and free for Peninsula School of Art members. Prior registration for the presentation is encouraged.
The art school and Guenzel Gallery are located at 3900 County Hwy F, Fish Creek. Hours are Monday through Saturday, 9 am – 5 pm. For more information call 920.868.3455 or visit http://www.peninsulaartschool.com.
