First Thursday Art Talk for December

Description: Join us as current artists-in-residence Terrence Campagna, Maria Pithara, and John Zane Zappas present their work during the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts’ First Thursday Art Talk on December 6, 2012 at 7:00 pm. As always, Art Talk is free and open to the public.

Terrence Campagna is the 2012 Simon Fellow. His practice takes place between the studio and outside world. Many of his recent projects have emerged from studying the surface of the Midwest on foot. During field walks he collects materials and makes field video recordings that study a range of overlooked phenomena, from the activities of workers building and maintaining public spaces, to the behaviors of sky, light, and water.

Maria Pithara's sculptures and videos seek contradictions, create collisions and search for connections between forms and processes across space and time.

John Zane Zappas creates sculptures and installations that question the way we negotiate systems of value.
