Lehigh University Art Galleries (LUAG) presents the exhibition:
ANTHONY VISCARDI: Tracing Time to Measure Space
Main Gallery, Zoellner Arts Center, Lehigh University
For over twenty years, the practice of tracing shadows has informed the architectural investigations and pedagogy of Lehigh University Professor of Art & Architecture ANTHONY VISCARDI. His drawings and constructions, derived from the direct observation of the pas- sage of light over time, navigate a conceptual landscape between two- and three-dimensional space.
The work of this exhibition was begun when Viscardi was awarded the 2012 MacDowell Colony Fellowship to continue his theoretical drawing/visual investigations of “shadow mapping.”
Viscardi has had solo exhibitions at the Atlanta College of Art, Lehigh University Wilson Gallery, and Gallery 164 in Buffalo, NY, and has exhibited at Nexus Contemporary Art in Atlanta, Philadelphia University of the Arts, Philadelphia Third Street Art Gallery, Auburn University Frank Seltzer Gallery, Allentown Art Museum, and Banana Factory Center for the Arts in Bethlehem, PA. Viscardi’s work has been exhibited widely at national and international academic conferences. He developed a particular interest in creative collaboration while working with Italian artist Michelangelo Pistoletto during his three-month residency in Atlanta. Viscardi is represented in the NYC Drawing Center curated Artist Registry.
Reception and Gallery Talk: Saturday, Sept 7 from 5-7 pm.
Thursday, Nov 7 from 5-7 pm
