Studio Arts Program Presents

Tuesday, April 9, 2019
Nancy Shaver
Fisher Studio Arts building, Seminar Room
5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Nancy Shaver (b. 1946) brings an idiosyncratic eye to sculpture, pairing found objects—a stack of egg crates, for instance, or a cluster of wooden boxes—that she sometimes leaves unaltered, sometimes slathers with a brightly colored coat of house paint. Shaver’s storied career includes 14 solo exhibitions in New York City between 1987 and today. In the 1970s, she was a protege of Walker Evans, and the two developed a friendship based on a mutual appreciation of junk stores and humble or overlooked objects. Numerous contemporary artists, including Robert Gober, cite Shaver as a guiding influence, as she has also been a teacher for most of her professional life.
