Artist to Lecture on Custom Work Displayed in IWU Art Galleries

October 9, 2006

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. - James Schuyler, the artist behind Line Theory: Ages 10-16, which is on display in IWU's Wakeley Gallery through Oct. 19, will present a lecture on his work Tuesday, Oct. 10, at 4 p.m. in room 218 of the Joyce G. Eichhorn Ames School of Art, 6 Ames Plaza West, in Bloomington. 

Line Theory: Ages 10-16 is Schuyler's first major solo exhibition in the Midwest. Constructed specifically for the gallery, the installation piece was designed to present viewers with the impression of an attic filled with boxes, which is an image taken directly from Schuyler's childhood.

Schuyler earned a MFA in woodworking and furniture design from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. He also earned a BFA in sculpture and studio art and a BMA in marketing from the University of Notre Dame du Lac.

Regular hours for the Merwin and Wakeley Galleries, which are located within the School of Art, are Monday through Friday 12-4 p.m., Tuesday evening 7-9 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday 1-4 p.m.
