Artist Talk with Tim Buckwalter
GRANVILLE, Ohio -- The Department of Studio Art welcomes Tim Buckwalter, Mellon Arts Across the Curriculum artist-in-residence, giving an artist talk at 7 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 9, in the Knapp Performance Space at Blair Knapp Hall (300 Ridge Road). This event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Dyan Couden at 740-587-6596 or visit Denison.edu.
For the past 25 years, Buckwalter has been remixing found imagery to produce works that explore how images and ideals from the past are still present and active today. His exhibit explores the idea that sometimes when you look back at your younger self, you feel as if you are looking not at yourself, but at another person, and that other person still exists somewhere.
Buckwalter’s paintings are in numerous corporate collections as well as the holdings of the Oakland Museum of California. Over the last decade, Buckwalter has organized both live and online exhibitions. He is the gallery director of Nurturing Independence Through Artistic Development (NIAD) Art Center in Richmond Calif., a studio arts program that is redefining contemporary art by assisting artists with disabilities.
Originally from Pennsylvania, Buckwalter now lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area. He graduated with honors from Philadelphia's Tyler School of Art in 1988.
