2015 Visiting Artists
Summer Session I Visiting Artist: Jane Fine
Visiting Artist Jane Fine will be in residence on campus June 8–12, 2015. She will be working on special projects in the Experimental Drawing course, visiting classes, and talking with students. Jane's quirky abstract paintings are a wonderful riot of color, gesture, and strange imagery. She has shown nationally and abroad with recent shows at Colgate University and in New Orleans. Jane graduated from Harvard University and then attended the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband, artist James Esber, and their son Abraham. Her work can be seen at janefine.net.
