Artist Phil Stein to Present 'The Global State of Fine Arts '05: What is Progressive?', Wed., Oct. 19, at DeSales
Phil Stein, photographer and multi-media artist, will discuss "The Global State of Fine Arts '05: What is Progressive?" at noon on Wednesday, October 19, in Trexler Library at DeSales University. Stein, who works in advertising photography, will speak about his art series, Rhythm, as part of the Brown Bag Lunch Series. The program is open to the public free of charge. Stein's Rhythm series uses digital images printed with archival inks and papers mounted on 100% cotton rag polystyrene by acrylic matter medium and buffered glues. His goal is to define the series with the process and not one specific look. The Rhythm series, which he began in January 2004, includes over 50 pieces and 16 works on paper. It is Stein's first attempt at the fine arts. Some of Stein's work from the Rhythm series is currently on display in Trexler Library at DeSales. He has also exhibited artwork in many galleries nationwide including George Billis Gallery in Los Angeles, North Beach Gallery in San Francisco, Anthem Gallery and Woobster St. Arts Space in New York City, Sande Webster in Philadelphia, and Bethlehem's Wired Gallery and Technicolor Grand. According to Stein, his foundation for success began at age 12 with private art lessons, which focused mainly on mathematics with a strong emphasis on classical drawing and painting skills. Stein says he discovered this foundation to be invaluable for the ability to move beyond classicism with strength and substance.
Trexler Library established the Brown Bag Lunch Series in September 1999. The purpose of the series is to provide faculty, staff, and students an opportunity to share their research projects, personal interests, and hobbies with the whole DeSales University community.
