The Department of Art in Syracuse University’s College of Visual and Performing Arts will present a lecture by American painter Dottie Attie as part of its visiting artist and speakers program, Nov. 1 at 7:30 p.m., in Shemin Auditorium, Shaffer Art Building. The lecture is free and open to the public. Parking is available in the Comstock Avenue lot.
According to Art in America, “Dottie Attie dedicates herself to the exquisite mimicry of the old master’s suaveness of facture and evenness of the hand. Her aim is to achieve a narrative effect to suggest the almost illicit excitement of the viewer in the act of perception. Beyond its actual story content, Attie’s narrative paintings imply a deeply voyeuristic gaze whose target is trapped in a small rectangle of painted matter.”
