Thursday October 18, 2012: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room

In conjunction with their Annual exhibition, Ann Arbor Women Artists join the Library to present this lecture/reception. The lecture will feature the juror for this exhibition, Vicki C. Wright, Director of Collections and Exhibitions for the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts. The winners of the Ann Arbor Women Artists Fall 2012 Juried Exhibition will also be announced and light refreshments will be served.

Ms. Wright will discuss what, in her estimation, makes an interesting work of art using the art of the exhibition as a focal point. She will also highlight current exhibitions at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts, which is both a museum and a community art school.

Ms. Wright has a B.F.A. in painting from Ohio Wesleyan University, and an M.A. in art history from Arizona State University. She has served as juror and guest curator for art exhibitions throughout New Hampshire and Maine. Prior to her move to Michigan in 2008, she served as director of the Museum of Art at the University of New Hampshire for 22 years and has held positions at the University of Maryland Art Gallery and the Phoenix Art Museum.
