NYFSG General Meeting and Monthly Presentation

“Mitch Messina: Reluctant Figure 

(~60’)

Mitch Messina is Professor of Sculpture and Ceramics at Nazareth College of Rochester. His extensive work, which is shown in multiple exhibitions and publications, explores how advancements in tools and technology have transformed the nature of human interaction.

 “This lecture will focus on the organic evolution of figurative imagery into my sculpture. My work is centered on a narrative that examines an emotionally alienated society devoid of authentic human contact.  For the past few years, I have continued to question the weakening of genuine human interaction caused by the technological erosion of our time.”

Brian O’Neill:

             “It’s All Abstraction

the benefits of seeing, and rendering from

This lecture will illustrate the benefits of breaking all form and value structure down to its most basic and simple shape, and will also offer insight into the thematic connections between both genres from his most recent solo show ‘Fusion’

Brian O’Neill’s work has been showcased in galleries across the United States, Canada, England, and Japan. O’Neill is a graduate of the Ani Art Academy apprenticeship program, where he trained with renowned realism painter Anthony Waichulis. Brian has found great success in both classic oil realism and well as bold and dynamic abstract painting. O’Neill’s formal training in representational drawing and painting gave him the freedom to create in both worlds—the recognizable and the imagined.
