November 13, 2019
Assistant Professor Michael Lazarus is currently artist-in-residence with The Portland Art and Learning Studios, a 10,000 square foot studio and gallery space for adults experiencing intellectual and developmental disabilities. PALS is a program of Albertina Kerr.
Next Tuesday, November 19, Lazarus will be a panelist for the Portland Art Museum's Art & Conversation: Portland Art & Learning Studios Panel Discussion. Art & Conversation takes place every third Tuesday of every month with coffee followed by a lecture or film screening. Coffee at 9:15 a.m. and lecture at 10:15 a.m. at 10:15 in the Mark Building.
Panelists will include
Matthew Spencer, PALS Artist
Ricky Bearghost, PALS Artist
Michael Lazarus, PALS Artist in Residence
Daniel Rolnik, PALS Gallery Director
Lazarus makes works in mixed media: panels of paint, wood, glass, adhesive lettering, and, in some cases, plastic reflectors and other found materials culled from the artist's everyday surroundings. "Each work presents itself as a possible painting, sculpture, portrait, mirror, sign, grave marker."
Holding Contemporary just closed his solo exhibition, and he has had solo exhibitions at Walter Galleries at San Francisco Art Institute, Fairbanks Gallery at Oregon State University in Corvalis, Feature Inc in New York, and ANP in Antwerp, among others. His work has been included in group exhibitions at institutions including Andrea Rosen Gallery, MoMA/PS1, Acme in Los Angeles, Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery in Saratoga Springs, Parrish Art Museum in Southampton, Las Vegas Museum of Art, and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco.
