SUNY Rockland Community College Presents Dialogue Series, "Conversations with Artists"
Admission is Free and Open to the Public
Suffern, NY - Leading visual artists in the New York metropolitan area will present a series of dialogues at SUNY Rockland Community College.
"Conversations with Artists - What is contemporary art about?" will take place on selected Fridays, 1-2:30 p.m., Academic II building, third floor, room 2306, on the main campus in Suffern. Admission is free and open to the public.
Eugenio Espinosa, Assistant Professor, Art, said, "The purpose of this series is to bring the excitement of direct contact with the makers of art, to make accessible important issues in the often seemingly inscrutable world of contemporary art and to allow opportunities for dialogue about creativity."
Artists who reflect the growing diversity of voices in the contemporary art scene were asked to participate in the series. The artists were selected because of the excellence of their work and the rigor of their commitment to make art that reaches people beyond the confines of an art intelligentsia.

"Exploration, play, humor and a sense of wonder play important roles in my own work. Although I rarely use a traditional camera, much of my work deals with photographic concepts and/or materials. I like my work to reveal itself to the viewer in layers: one’s perception of what they are seeing may change when one spends time with a piece."
