Marist was proud to present the art show About the Figure, which opened
on Nov. 11, 2010. The showcase features works from Clea Carlsen, Barbara
Duval, Nancy Peel Gladwell, Barbara Grossman andMarist Adjunct Lecturer
of Art Christopher Seubert.
“One of the pleasures in organizing a show like this is to be able to pres-
ent the work of frst-tier artists of the fgurative tradition in the United
States and allow the entire community to see such a stunning exhibition,”
said Gallery Director Ed Smith. “These artists have had their works show-
cased in many museums, including the Corcoran Museum of Art, Florence
Griswold Museum, Fogg Art Museum, NHK Culture Center in Osaka, Japan,
and collegiate exhibitions at Bryn Mawr, Pratt Institute and Yale.”
The exhibition was open to the public and was held at Marist’s Steel Plant
Studios. The gallery remained open until Dec. 11, 2010.
