smART Talk: Stephanie Dotson, Printmaking Beyond Process
The artist Stephanie Dotson will be speaking on the conceptual territory of printmaking echoed in non-print work. Stephanie Dotson subverts the narratives inherent in her processes with a mad arsenal of working techniques to create a new patois where opposing realities parallel narratives from her own life.
Solo exhibitions of her work include the Three Walls Gallery in Chicago, Vox Populii in Philadelphia, and Trace Gallery in Athens, GA. She has completed several artist residencies including the Bemis Center in 2004 and has received full Joan Mitchell fellowships to residencies at the Vermont Studio Center in 2007 and the Atlantic Center for the Arts In 2010. Dotson is presently Chair of the art department at the Santa Barbara City College in Santa Barbara, CA, where she lives and works in her studio. Stephanie studied poster and print arts in Havana, Cuba as a student in 2006, where she plans to return in Summer 2010 as the director of her printmaking study abroad program.
ADMISSION IS FREE
The smART Talks program serves to increase awareness of local artists through a series of three talks a year by local artists about their work, careers, and creative process. The series, begun in 1996, was created in honor of Helen Rosenberg, mother of Susan Rose, and grandmother of Julie Weiner, and pays tribute to artists who live and work in the Santa Barbara area.
