Frist: Artist's Forum: Rocky Horton and Chris Scarborough - May 7 , 2009

Artist's Forum: Rocky Horton and Chris Scarborough
Thursday, May 7, 6:30 p.m.
Rechter Room, FREE

Join artists Rocky Horton and Chris Scarborough as they discuss their work.

In his most recent studio practices, Rocky Horton utilizes different dilutions of photographic development chemicals to paint onto exposed photographs. With these "photo paintings" Horton is commenting on the precarious relationship these mediums have had with each other since the invention of photography in the 19th century.

Chris Scarborough works in photography and drawing to create meticulously detailed images of people who have been manipulated according to the exaggerated characteristics of Japanese anime. His most recent work has developed from this foundation to include the examination of cartoon violence.

During the evening, enjoy jazz music in the lobby from 6:00-8:00 p.m. by Billy Contreras and Buddy Spicher and a stroll through the galleries.
