Painter to give lecture, lead workshops, April 4-6

Conceptual realist painter Peter Dreher will give an illustrated talk on his work at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 4, in Room 219 of 185 Nassau St. He also will conduct workshops from noon to 2 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, April 5-6, in Room 220.

Dreher, who has been professor of painting at Freiburg University in Germany since 1968, is known worldwide for his series, "Day by Day Is a Good Day" ("The Glass"). He began the conceptual experiment in paint in the early '70s and continues it to this day: the same glass in the same environment in the same position -- only the painter's subjectivity is variable. He has some 4,000 pictures of the glass to his credit.

The events are sponsored by the Program in Visual Arts. The workshops are open only to the University community; to sign up, call (609) 258-8560 or e-mail lawson@princeton.edu.
