CORVALLIS, Ore. –  Printmaker Minna Resnick will speak at 7 p.m. Jan. 25 at Oregon State University as part of the School of Arts & Communication’s Visiting Artists and Scholars Lecture Series.

The talk will be held in Room 13 at the Memorial Union, 2501 S.W. Jefferson Way, Corvallis. A reception with the artist will be held at 6 p.m. in the same location.

Resnick is the 2018 Norma Seibert Printmaking Artist. She will be in residence on campus that week and will spend time reviewing and critiquing student artwork. She will also create one of three prints that will be available to patrons who support the OSU Norma Seibert Printmaking Scholarship, awarded in the spring.

A native of New York City now based in Ithaca, New York, Resnick has work in more than 60 public and private collections and in the permanent collections of the Brooklyn Museum of New York, the Denver Art Museum, the New York Public Library, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and many more. She is a recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship and two New York Foundation for Arts Fellowships.

Her work in lithography and drawing has always focused on language. Early works examined body language and non-verbal communication to explore the narrative. Current work uses actual text as the impetus for conception. Language connects and gives substance to the pictorial imagery, as well as providing titles for much of the work.

The Visiting Artists and Scholars Lecture series brings world-renowned artists and scholars to the OSU campus to interact with students in the art department so they can learn what is required of a professional artist or scholar.
