Sculptor Ry Rocklen to lecture September 9

Monday, September 8, 2014 - 10:29am

Visiting artist and Gallery Artist-in-Resident Ry Rocklen will discuss the work he has created while in Athens as well as comment on his recent sculptural pieces in porcelain and his furniture enterprise Trophy Modern. Rocklen's exhibition of work, Local Color, made largely in tandem with students at the Lamar Dodd School of Art will open on September 12th in Gallery 307. His lecture is on Tuesday Sept. 9 at 5:30 p.m. in room S151 of the Dodd:

Rocklen began his career studying with Charles Ray at the University of California, Los Angeles, and continued at the University of Southern California where he received his Master of Fine Arts degree. Rocklen has exhibited his work nationally and internationally, most recently holding solo exhibitions at Praz-Delavallade in Paris, France, and UNTITLED in New York. His work is in the collections of the Thomas J. Watson Library at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the MoCA Library at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. 

Great visitors to campus, sharing their work as they become part of our community is one thing the Dodd has always been about. Subscribe to the gallery newsletter, come out to these terrific (and free) events and take part.
