Artist Talk: Briar Craig

Briar Craig: README
Thursday, March 10 | 6 to 7 pm

Join exhibiting artist Briar Craig to hear more about his artistic practice and specifically about the screen prints presented in README.

During his hour-long live Zoom webinar, Craig will share visuals along with personal insights into the process of creating his unique prints using ultra-violet cured ink.

README showcases how Craig deftly incorporates text into his complex screen prints — stacking words and letters in ways that elicit new meanings. He creates his multi-layered screen prints by using ultra-violet cured ink superimposed over found objects like magazines and chalkboards.

README is on view until April 17, 2022.
