Visiting Artist Lecture: Sonya Kelliher-Combs, March 21

Through mixed-media painting and sculpture, Kelliher-Combs offers a chronicle of the ongoing struggle for self-identity in the Alaskan context. Her combination of shared iconography with personal imagery demonstrates the power of each vocabulary. Similarly, her use of synthetic, organic, traditional and modern materials moves beyond oppositions between Western/Native culture, self/other and man/nature to examine their interrelationships and interdependence.

The lecture is scheduled for Tuesday, March 21, at 6:30 p.m. in VAC 1B20.

Margaret Werth received her MA and PhD from Harvard University and taught at Barnard College and Columbia University before going to the University of Delaware in 2001.

Her book The Joy of Life: The Idyllic in French Art, circa 1900, published in 2002, explores dreamlike representations of mythic community, individual fantasy and utopianism.
