visiting artists

I scour local arts communities in the places where I teach, to find people who are active interpreters of the environments where my students live.  My most recent collaboration was with Nguyen Phi Loan, a Vietnamese collage artist whose work is exhibited internationally.  Ms. Loan led student workshops demonstrating her unique collage techniques and sensibilities.  The resulting exhibition of the artist’s and students’ work included a silent auction, and was open to the public.

Ms. Loan uses images from magazines and newspapers, tearing them into elaborate shapes to construct her imagined landscapes.
