Art Talk: Imagery vs. Intent

November 9th, 11am

Please join us in the gallery for a discussion on the artwork of Scott Gibbs. Our panel will include local artists Gary Hinsche and Jean Koller, Sinclair Community College Professor, Dr. Kelly Joslin, and University of Dayton Professor, Jeffrey Cortland Jones. The event will be moderated by Dayton catalyst and founder of The Collaboratory, Peter Benkendorf. 

This discussion will focus on the prioritization of imagery and intent. The event will start with dialogue between the panel then move to an open format with questions from the audience. 

Part of our mission is to support artists and to inform the Dayton community about art and it is through these types of events that this can occur. 

Tickets available on Eventbrite

Gary W. Hinsche is an accomplished painter, sculptor, and graphic designer. He studied design at Santa Monica College, Art Center College of Design and California State University at Long Beach. His work has always been grounded in the conceptual/minimalist space. He was first influenced by Craig Ellwood, a celebrated architect and artist. While teaching at Yale, Ellwood developed a close relationship with Josef Albers, who encouraged him to paint. To some extent, that link back to Albers has had a profound influence on Hinsche and the way he approaches his own work. Meeting Frank Gehry, becoming friends and working on a few of his amazing projects has also shaped Hinsche’s work. Hinsche’s work has been honored with gold medals from the New York and Los Angeles Art Directors Clubs, AIGA, the Mead Annual Report Show, and has been featured in Print, Graphics, and Communications Arts. He served as president of the Los Angeles Art Directors Club, sat on the advisory board of AIGA/LA and served as Adjunct Professor at the Art Center College of Design.
