Painter to give lecture, lead workshops, April 4-6
Posted March 30, 2006; 10:27 p.m.
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.
