Artists' Talk
Amy Youngs and Ed Valentine

Tue, Oct 27, 2009 4 PM

These talks are presented as part of the Department of Art's Current Perspective series, held in conjunction with the Faculty Exhibitions at Hopkins Hall Gallery (128 North Oval Mall), where a reception for the artists will be held immediately following the program.

Amy Youngs is an associate professor in the Department of Art's art and technology area. She uses electronics, kinetics, insects, plants and pixels to create artwork about the changing relationships between technology, nature and self. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, and her essays about art and biology have been published in Leonardo and Nouvel Objet. She was awarded an individual artist fellowship from the Ohio Arts Council in 2002.

Ed Valentine is an associate professor in the Department of Art at Ohio State's Lima campus. His paintings and drawings have been included in exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Paris, Tokyo, and the United Arab Emirates. A ten-year survey of Valentine's work was held in the Czech Republic in 2002–3. Between starting and finishing his BFA degree at the Columbus College of Art and Design, Valentine worked in a variety of positions, including assistant art director for a television station in Columbus, master screen printer in Chicago, and freelance illustrator for Warner Bros. Records in New York City.

Cosponsored by Ohio State’s Department of Art and the Wexner Center.
