Nov. 13 and 14
The Homewood Art Workshops at The Johns Hopkins University will sponsor two free art-related events on the evenings of Monday, Nov. 13, and Tuesday, Nov. 14, on the Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.
Painter Neil Riley will present a slide talk on his work, "Three Decades of Painting," at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 13, in Room 101 of the Mattin Center's F. Ross Jones Building. Known for his keenly observed New England landscapes as well as brooding, intimately scaled interiors, Riley's work belongs to a painterly tradition that includes artists such as Edouard Vuillard, Gwen John, Fairfield Porter and Giorgio Morandi.
Riley has been a visiting artist or artist-in- residence at Dartmouth College, the College of William & Mary and the Jerusalem Studio School. His awards include a Fulbright Fellowship to Italy and a Klots Artist Residency in Rochefort-en-Terre, France. His work has been shown in galleries and museums in New York, Ohio, Indiana, Virginia and Maryland and in France.
Riley is an associate professor of fine arts at the Columbus College of Art and Design in Columbus, Ohio. He lives in rural Vermont with his wife, Dianne Tanner. To download images of Riley's work, go to www.jhu.edu/~artwork/galleries/neilriley/index.html.
On Tuesday, Nov.14, the Homewood Art Workshops opens its Faculty Exhibition with a reception from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., also in the F. Ross Jones Building.
The exhibition will feature drawings, paintings, photographs, cartoons, sculpture and dioramas by Art Workshops instructors D. S.
