Utica, NY (09/06/2013)- Utica College’s Edith Langley Barrett Fine Art Gallery will showcase the works of critically acclaimed illustrator, artist, musician, author and graphic artist J.D. King beginning this Monday, Sept. 9.
“Pretty Poison” is a collection of graphic art pieces, composed of various shapes and colors to create images. Pop Art and 1960s British Mods were King’s influences while designing and creating the pieces.
There will be a meet-the-artist reception in the gallery from 4 to 6:30 p.m. Monday. King will also discuss his work on Wednesday as part of The Professor Harry F. and Mary Ruth Jackson Lunch Hour Series; this will take place at 12:30 in the Library Concourse, adjacent to the gallery.
King has also had many of his works published in newspapers and magazines such as The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe and Women’s Wear Daily. Master Card/ Visa, US Cellular and Absolut Vodka have also used his graphics in advertisements and campaigns.
King’s other interests include music and writing. He has recorded with the band J.D. and the Coachmen, and has written two books.
The Edith Langley Barrett Fine Art Gallery, located on the lower level of Gannett Library, is open Monday through Friday from 1 to 5 p.m. and Saturday from noon to 3 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public.

"The thing that really stood out for me in the PRJ department was the faculty. They weren't just professors teaching -- they were mentors, friends, confidants, and when they needed to be, my parents away from home." "The thing that really stood out for me in the PRJ department was the faculty. They weren't just professors teaching -- they were mentors, friends, confidants, and when they needed to be, my parents away from home. The program was like a family -- from its patriarch Raymond Simon all the way down to the freshman on his first day of classes. I felt welcome and important from the start, but was encouraged and expected to thrive."
