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.

"I can honestly say, that I am a better person for having received my education from Utica College." "As a returning adult student, I felt the program was perfect. The class size was small allowing for individual attention when I needed it. I always felt known and accepted as an individual, not just a number among many. The professors were encouraging and helpful in many areas, not just academics. They took a personal interest in us as people, not just students. When I had a difficult time, my professors gave me the extra little push that I needed to continue. I can honestly say, that I am a better person for having received my education from Utica College. Today I teach high school mathematics and also a course at HCCC. The education I received at Utica College has prepared me well for my position teaching the higher math courses in high school. Returning to college to obtain my Bachelor Degree in mathematics was the one of the best decision I ever made. Choosing Utica College made that decision even better."
