Vannessa Tran, a Seattle artist whose work is informed by her Vietnamese heritage and her love of Chinese painting and landscape poetry, will present a lecture and three workshops on campus the week of Feb. 19.
From noon to 1:30 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, she will lead workshops in Room 218 of 185 Nassau St. The workshops are intended to help student-artists develop their approach to subject matter and explore the poetry that exists in art and in nature. They are open to members of the University community; to register, call 258-1016 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The lecture, titled "The 'Nature' of Painting," is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 20, in 106 McCormick Hall. It is open to the public.
Tran is a fellow in the Council of the Humanities and the Tang Center for East Asian Art. Her visit also is sponsored by the Program in Visual Arts and the University Art Museum.
