Capitol Center to Conclude 2015-16 Salon Series with Alice Attie
The Capitol Center for the Arts is pleased to welcome NYC-based artist Alice Attie to the historic Kimball House as the final presentation of the 2015-16 Salon Series on May 20 at 7pm.
Alice Attie is a visual artist and a writer living and working in New York City. Attie received a doctoral degree in Comparative Literature and an MFA in Poetry and taught literature throughout the New York area before turning her attention to her artwork. Her drawings often engage the meeting place of drawing and writing. In an ongoing body of work, inspired by the late works of the writer/philosopher Michel Foucault, Attie takes the phrase "Take Care of Yourself" (taken from the teachings of the ancient Greeks) to the drawing page - to form a landscape of endless inscription and abstraction. Other drawings are meditations in ink that allow tiny marks to accumulate over long sustained periods of time. Attie has also had her photographic studies widely published. She is in the collections of the Whitney Museum, The Studio Museum and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, among many other collections. Her first book of poems These Figures Lining the Hills was released in the fall of 2015.
