Bevier Gallery Hosts Visiting Artist Letha Wilson
Letha Wilson is a contemporary artist known for “breaking the rules” of photography, often transforming her photographs into objects that bend and curve out of walls, becoming three-dimensional sculpture.
As part of our School of Art's Anna Ballarian Visiting Artist Series, RIT's Bevier Gallery is hosting Wilson for a solo exhibition, "Studio Sketches," from Feb. 10 to March 12. Wilson is set to deliver an artist talk at 5 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 10, in the gallery (Booth Hall, second floor).
Wilson's work has appeared in solo and group exhibitions worldwide, including GRIMM, Amsterdam (NL) and New York, N.Y. (U.S.); the Center for Contemporary Art and Culture, Portland, Ore. (U.S.); the DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Lincoln, Mass. (U.S.), the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, and Galerie Christophe Gaillard, Paris (FR). Artsy recently named Wilson an emerging artist to watch, and one of 20 female artists who are "pushing sculpture forward."
Wilson installed an outdoor sculpture on the north lawn of Booth and Gannett Halls in the fall of 2021. Titled "Craters of the Moon Foldback," it consists of UV photographs printed on steel. The outdoor sculpture will be on view for a minimum of two years as part of her visit to RIT.
