McDaniel College will present a lecture by artist Mary Walker on Thursday, March 6th at 7:00 p.m. in Peterson Hall Room 104. The lecture, which is sponsored by McDaniel’s Department of Art and Art History and Ars Nova, the college's student art club, is free and open to the public.
A studio artist who creates sculpture, painting and installations, Walker’s current work involves the production of wall-hung constructions combining the concerns of painting and sculpture. “I use imagery and conceptual ideas from natural science and landscape,” she says. “Formally I am interested in contrasting geometry and gesture, man-made and natural, chance and planning.”
Walker was born in New York City and grew up in Ridgewood, New Jersey. She received a BS degree from Purdue University and an MA in Liberal Studies from Hamline University in St.Paul, MN. Her paintings, drawings and sculpture have been widely exhibited and are represented in museum, corporate and private collections across the country. She has received fellowships from the Bush, McKnight and Jerome Foundations as well as an Individual Artist grant from the Maryland State Arts Council. Her work is represented by Perimeter Gallery in Chicago. She presently lives and works in Baltimore, MD.
