Visiting Artist Lecture: Judith Schaechter
Lecture October 13, 2011 - 7pm in Fine Arts Building Room 249
College of Visual Arts, Theatre & Dance Presents: The Vincent and Mary Agnes Thursday Distinguished Scholars Lectures Series.
Judith Schaechter is a Philadelphia-based artist known for her work in the medium of stained glass. Her pieces often exhibit elements of parable, and her distorted faces and figures, along with her own self-professed atheism ironically clash with her medium's religious tradition.
Schaechter has served on the faculty of numerous art schools, such as the Rhode Island School of Design.
She illustrated the cover for musician Andy Prieboy's 1991 album Montezuma Was a Man of Faith. Her work has been exhibited in the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution, the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. Schaechter's Bigtop Flophouse Bedspins appeared in the 2002 Whitney Biennial.
Schaechter will be visiting FSU in connection with her participation in the exhibition “Cute and Creepy” at the FSU MoFA.
