Recipient of Omaha Creative Institute’s Spring 2018 Individual Artist Grant, Angie Seykora creates installation, sculpture, drawing, and painting that repurpose industrial and found materials. Through process driven, almost mechanical methods of assembly, she emphasizes accumulation and tactile materiality to produce work that references the history of minimalism, bodily systems, and object oriented ontology.
Join Angie and OCI staff in her studio Thursday, July 19th at 7:00PM for an in-depth discussion of her process and the conceptual framework that supports her work. Learn more about the day-to-day operations of a busy artist’s studio and interact with this exceptional artist, and her work, outside the context of a formal museum or gallery exhibition. Questions from visitors will be both welcomed and encouraged.
This event is free and open to the public. Space is limited to 15 guests. RSVP here.
