Artist's Talk
Ardine Nelson

Tue, Oct 13, 2009 4 PM

Ardine Nelson, an associate professor in the photography program of Ohio State's Department of Art, talks about her recent work, including her images of community gardens in Germany.

An early experimenter with Polaroid materials, Nelson is recognized for her continued bodies of work with alternative cameras and transfer processes. Her German garden images have been recognized through a Graham Foundation grant and a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship for 2008–09. She has exhibited nationally and internationally and received artist fellowships from the Ohio Arts Council and Greater Columbus Arts Council. She recently taught alternative camera techniques in Slovakia and previously participated a GCAC residency program in Spain.

This talk is 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 artist will be held immediately following Nelson's presentation.

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