“What Happens Next Is None of Your Business"
Using her own studio work and professional path as examples in a talk at the Sheldon Museum of Art, Kim Russo will share her thoughts on the importance of authenticity, sincerity, and passion to an artist’s studio practice. Russo’s talk, at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 28, is free and open to the public.
Russo is an artist, writer, teacher and Associate Provost of Academic Affairs at the California Institute of the Arts. She uses watercolor on paper to create drawings of contemporary American life that sit between comic tragedy and cautionary tale.
Russo has a bachelor’s and master’s degrees in painting from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University and Indiana University respectively.
She has exhibited her work throughout the United States and in Ireland, and has received residency fellowships from the Frederick P. Lenz Foundation, Caldera, Atlantic Center for the Arts, and Americans for the Arts. Her drawings are in the collections of the New Mexico Museum of Art in Santa Fe, Cornell Fine Arts Museum in Winter Park, Fla., and the Paul and Lulu Hilliard University Art Museum in Lafayette, La., as well as notable private collections.
Kim Russo lives just outside Los Angeles.
