Visiting Artist Lecture Series: Giordanne Salley, Painter

Join us for our visiting artist lecture series as we welcome painter Giordanne Salley.

About the Artist:

Giordanne Salley (b. 1986) was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio. She received her MFA in painting from Boston University in 2013. Singled out by Roberta Smith in The New York Times, as a young artist to look our for saying her work is, flattened renderings of everyday close encounters…a relative unknown, that should not be missed.”Giordonne Salley’s paintings explore reality close-up. Sensitively textured surfaces dramatize the moment materials touch or overlap. Her paintings explore the intersection of love and nature – a couple fooling around in the woods, a boat trip down the river. Her paintings function as nostalgic haikus. They echo with warm laughter and sweet sadness, conjuring a fleeting afternoon light.
