Julia Betts
Unsettled Hues, Enduring Structures
Monday, March 4 at 6:30 pm
Join us for the reception of the exhibition at 5:30 prior to the talk
ArtLab Seaboard Depot/Studio Arts Building
941 Front Avenue

Julia Betts creates unique situations whose exact results are ambiguous and disruptive. Her process emerges from degrees of situation whose "moment of truth" is variable. This makes each piece of her work as a whole or a vehicle for possibilities that is achieved through transient and unknowable states. The performative structure of Julia's work is set with guidelines, randomness, and even personal risk.

Dr. Jay P. Telotte
Representation, Presentation, and Disney's "Art of Animation"
Tuesday, April 3, 7 pm
CSU Riverside Theatre Complex, Studio Theater
6 W 10th Street

This talk examines the shift from the Disney Studio's early emphasis on realistic representation, or an "illusion of life" aesthetic, to a "presentational" approach that repackaged traditional Disney animation and re-framed its experience. Dr. Jay P. Telotte received his PhD in English from the University of Florida. He joined the Georgia Tech faculty as an Assistant Professor of English in 1979 and in 1991 was promoted to Professor in the School of Literature, Media, and Communication.

Johanpeter (Jp) Hol
Building Shrines For Shadows
Tuesday, April 11, 6 pm
ArtLab Seaboard Depot/Studio Arts Building
941 Front Avenue

Hol's first point of departure is an idea, not the material. His work is based on the human paradox: the individual in the group, the forlornness that you can feel even as part of that group, and the loneliness of human existence. Some related overlapping themes are the invisible things, the shadows, that which remains unsaid between members of the group and to outsiders, dystopia, and Disneyfication.
