Artist Mary Ann Strandell speaks at Union College
Schenectady, N.Y. (May 8, 2002) – Artist Mary Ann Strandell will talk on "Painterly Transitions from New Mexico Landscapes to Pop Baroque" on Tuesday, May 14, at 7 p.m. in the Nott Memorial at Union College.
Her talk, the inaugural Katharine Van Meter Sadock Lecture sponsored by the College's Women's Studies program, is free and open to the public.
After teaching painting and graduate studies at Washington University in St. Louis since 1999, Mary Ann Strandell has set up a studio in New York City to continue full-time art making. She is exhibiting in San Francisco at the Minna Gallery.
In October of 2001 she completed a large solo exhibit at the Elliot Smith Gallery in St. Louis. Along with her life-long interest in painting and printmaking, she bridges the traditional languages of visual media with technical and creative research. This research includes using 3-D lenticular printing, archival editions of digital prints, and traditional printmaking.
Her academic appointments include the Kansas City Art Institute, Notre Dame University New Mexico Program, the University of South Dakota and the University of New Mexico.
Her work has been covered in the St. Louis Post Dispatch, River Front Times and Kansas City Star. Her work has won awards from the National Endowment for the Arts and Bemis Center for Contemporary Art in Omaha.
The Sadock Lecture Series has been initiated by the Women's Studies Program through a grant of $50,000 from Theodore Sadock M.D. '33 of Albuquerque, N.M., in honor of his wife, Kitty. The Women's Studies Lounge, Room 302 of Union's Reamer Campus Center, has been renamed in honor of Sadock.
