Come by the Brooks this Thursday to hear what it’s like to be an art student, as well as a student of Greely Myatt, professor at the University of Memphis and well-known sculptural artist.
Artists Benton Moss and Kathleen Studebaker will discuss their work in the exhibition From the School of Myatt. (Read our earlier post on the show here.)
Both artists’ work is very involved and conceptual — Kathleen’s work, pensive and introspective, while Benton’s, almost explosive, takes over the side of the room in which it is installed. So, it will be interesting to hear from both artist about where inspiration from their work comes from, as well as their techniques for producing it.
If you want to read up on these artists before the talk: Benton has also completed a mural on South Main, which was written about in the Daily News. And Kathleen talks about her work and has some more images available on ArtMemphis.net.
