Ed Praybe, MFA 2012, visited last week to present to the community about his travels in Europe. Ed travelled throughout Europe after receiving the prestigious Hohenberg award, notably visiting Italy, The Netherlands, and Great Britain. Ed showed slides and spoke about the importance of seeing influential masterworks in person, such as Caravaggio’s St. Matthew cycle in Rome, Lorenzetti’s Allegory of Good and Bad Government, and landscapes by Turner and Constable. Ed showed slides of his sketchbook pages, careful investigations of the structural qualities of these important works. In conjunction with the presentation, Ed mounted an exhibition of oil paintings and framed drawings in the downstairs lobby and alcove; paintings that captured the spirit of suburbia as well as faithful drawings from his travels.
This week, the new Hohenberg entries are on display in the student gallery. Each student submits one piece, along with a statement, to the jury of faculty judges. See all of the works in the gallery above- and best of luck to the entrants.
