UI Museum Of Art Hosts Gallery Talk By Peter Feldstein Dec. 9

The University of Iowa Museum of Art (UIMA) will host "Art Faculty Gallery Talk with Peter Feldstein," a free discussion by Feldstein on his work in "Faculty Exhibition 2004," at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 9.

"Faculty Exhibition 2004" is a show of new work by faculty from the UI School of Art and Art History. The exhibition will be on view in the UIMA's newly renovated North Gallery through Saturday, Dec. 11.

Feldstein, who teaches photography and digital imaging at the UI, said that he will discuss his use of a 19th-century process, cliche verre, as well as 21st-century computer technology "in an attempt to discover a language for making connections to our universal human history."

Feldstein has been teaching at the UI since 1973. His work is represented by Olson-Larsen Galleries in Des Moines and Rico-Maresco Gallery in New York City. His photographs were included in "Color Photography" and "Photographic Possibilities" by Robert Hirsch, and have been exhibited nationally.

Feldstein has received an individual artist's grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, two Iowa Arts Council Grants and two Polaroid Collection grants. He was artist-in-residence at Dartmouth College.

Art works for "Faculty Exhibition 2004" were selected by 31 faculty members to represent the best of their recent work. These works represent media taught in the UI School of Art and Art History: printmaking, painting, drawing, photography, ceramics, sculpture, metalsmithing, jewelry, design, papermaking and intermedia.

The UI Museum of Art, located on North Riverside Drive in Iowa City, is open noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday, and noon to 9 p.m. Thursday and Friday. Admission is free. Public metered parking is available in UI parking lots west and north of the museum.
