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.

"There is no question that my careers at GE and Rubbermaid wouldn't have worked out without the foundation that UC gave me." "I chose business as a major for the financial background it gave me. My UC degree gave me the opportunity to build my career at General Electric, where I spent 31 years, ending up as senior vice-president of corporate marketing and sales. I then went on to run Rubbermaid for six years and ended up as CEO. There is no question that the GE career and the Rubbermaid career wouldn't have worked out without the foundation that UC gave me."
