Artist Lesley Vance in Conversation with Mark Wethli

Los Angeles-based artist Lesley Vance is known for pushing the limits of representation in her paintings and watercolors. Her reputation has been growing steadily since her inclusion in the 2010 Whitney Museum of American Art Biennial. Deemed “as demanding as they are satisfying” by one critic, Vance’s recent oils demonstrate her rigorous engagement with the history of still-life painting. In conjunction with a solo exhibition of her work opening at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, Vance will participate in a public conversation with Mark Wethli, painter and chair of the Visual Arts department. 

This event is free and open to the public.
