Robert Yoder
Wednesday, February 22, 11:30-1:00
Lecture Hall 1, The Evergreen State College

Robert Yoder
works in painting and collage. “The details and elements of his paintings and collages that are “missing” are really right there in front of the viewer, which can either create a disorienting sense of disconnection or a strong connection with his works.”
Born in Danville, VA, Robert Yoder lives and works in Seattle. He received his B.F.A. from the James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA and his M.F.A. from the University of Washington. He is represented by frosch&portmann in New York, and the Froelick Gallery in Portland. His work is in the collections of the Frye Art Museum, the Seattle, Portland and Tacoma Art Museums, and The Henry Art Gallery, as well as numerous city and private collections.

Dan Webb - Evergreen Artists' Lecture Series

Wed, 02/15/2012 - 11:00am - 1:30pm

From today's inbox:

Dan Webb Lecture
Lecture Hall 1; The Evergreen State College

Dan Webb  works in a variety of materials including wood, limestone and bronze. Two themes have been sources of inspiration for the past several years. The first is the idea that much of the meaning of a work of art is elusive and, to an extent, hidden. Neither the artist nor the viewer can be aware of every possible meaning within a work since each interpretation is revealed only by the experience and perceptions of the individual. Webb carves, in stone and wood, objects seemingly covered by a material that hints at what is beneath. The subject of the work is the fact that so much in the image is covered up and unseen. The show’s second theme concerns the dandelion as a metaphor for resiliency. Despite man’s efforts to prevent its growth, dandelions always find a way to resist those efforts.

Dan Webb has won numerous awards including a Pollock-Krasner award, the Betty Bowen Award, and an Artists Trust/Washington State Arts Commission Fellowship. His work is part of the permanent collection of the Seattle Art Museum as well as various public art commissions and private collections.  He is represented by Greg Kucera Gallery in Seattle. Dan received his BFA in 1991 from Cornish College of the Arts.
