Jonathan Queen: Contemporary Master

Posted on March 09, 2013

Lecture and Demonstration at Centre College

Poster for “Jonathan Queen: Contemporary Master”

On Monday, March 11,  the painter Jonathan Queen will be visiting Centre College. He’ll do a painting demonstration from 10:20 a.m. to 4:30 p.m in the Jones Visual Arts Center (room 204). Later on, he’ll give a public lecture on his work at 7:30 p.m in the Vahlkamp Theatre, which is in lower level of Crounse Hall. Both events are free. The demonstration is a an open house affair–come and go as you please.

I am excited to have Jonathan coming to campus. His witty images are painted with great mastery. He will also be spending time with our painting students, in classes and in a few individual critiques.
