Emory & Henry College Presents Artalk by Morgan Craig, Painter

Nov 11th, 2013   7:30 pm 9:00 pm
Van Dyke Center, Board of Visitors Lounge

Morgan Craig, a Philadelphia based painter, will be presented by the Emory & Henry College Arts Series in an Artalk on Monday, November 11 at 7:30 p.m. in the Board of Visitors Lounge, Van Dyke Center on the campus of Emory & Henry College.  The Artalk relates to his exhibition, Shelf Life: An Exploration in Architecture and Identity, on display in The 1912 Gallery, Emory Train.  The exhibit opens on Monday evening at 6:30 for viewing prior to the Artalk and afterwards for a reception with the artist.

Craig's exhibit is available for viewing daily from Noon- 5 p.m. from November 12-December 13, 2013 or by appointment.  Call 276-844-6866 with inquiries.

In his exhibit Craig focuses on architectural structures of an industrial or institutional nature, demolished interiors and deserted buildings. He believes that these buildings act as repositories and vehicles for memory. Craig claims that his work is a sociopolitical commentary on the effects of hubris, avarice and technological obsolescence upon communities throughout the world.

Craig is the recipient of several awards including the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, and has lectured in Australia, throughout the United States and Europe.

The Artalk and exhibition are free of charge and open to the public.
