Artist/Critic/Educator Tanya Hartman will discuss her artwork, as well as her critical writing, at a round table brown back lunch on November 10, 2016 from 12-1pm in FAC102. Hartman will then continue this presentation, “Balancing Art Practice with Critical Writing,” at a lecture on November 10 at 6pm in FAC 101.

Hartman grew up in New York City. She obtained her BFA in Painting from The Rhode Island School Of Design and her MFA in Painting from Yale University. She was a Fulbright Scholar in Sweden and now serves as an Associate Professor in the Department of Visual Art at the University of Kansas.

Hartman is equally inspired by the power of image and language and its ability to create experience. She uses a range of materials, techniques and media to reinforce the theme of memory, from paint to fabric to clay, as well as found objects. Words play an important role in her imagery and her love for language is also shown through her art criticisms.

Studio visits are being scheduled.
