Artist Talk

1 p.m. – 2 p.m.

Bell Auditorium D-440

Matt Shane will also be giving an artist talk, open to the whole NSCAD community.

About the artist: Matt Shane makes paintings, drawings, and room-sized collaborative installations that are anchored in the realm of landscape. His pictorial worlds follow a Romantic lineage and arrive at a mysterious borderland, empty of human inhabitants but carved and constructed with human intention. Dwellings, gardens, and piles of rubble are linked by associative threads in a dreamlike web of proximity.
