Written By Tyler Gardinier '14, PR Intern
Artist, author, illustrator, ,musician to discuss "Pretty Poison"
Utica, NY (09/10/2013)- Nationally-known artist, illustrator and musician J.D. King will present a Gallery Talk on Wednesday, Sept. 11 at 12:30 at the Edith Langley Barrett Fine Art Gallery, located in the Utica College Library Concourse. The talk is part of the Professor Harry F. and Mary Ruth Jackson Lunch Hour Series at the college.
King will discuss his current exhibit, “Pretty Poison: Prints.” He has worked in graphics and illustration for decades, but his source of inspiration has been painting: synthetic cubism, geometric abstraction, pop and minimalism. King has recently moved to digital printing, which allows him to use exact grids and geometric shapes.
King’s prints are on exhibit in UC’s Gallery through Friday, Oct. 25.
The program is free and open to the public. Literary programs are made possible with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts.

"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."
