Artist Talk with Douglas Baulos
April 01, 2017 in Huntsville , AL
5:00 PM-6:00 PM
Lowe Mill A&E’s Artist Talk program provides an informal, intimate setting for artists, art lovers and patrons to spend time with Lowe Mill exhibiting artists. These events consist of a gallery walk with the artist, during which visitors can ask questions and learn about process and ideas behind the work, as well as time for less-structured interaction with the artist. Refreshments will be served. This edition features Douglas Baulos, the artist behind our North Floor installation, The Gentle Sadness of Things. About the artist: Baulos was born in Springfield, Illinois. In 1990, he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. In 1993, he received a Master of Fine Arts from the University of New Orleans. He currently is the Assistant Professor of Drawing at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and the curriculum director at Studio by the Tracks, an art center that provides free art classes to emotionally conflicted children and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder or other mental illnesses. His drawings, collages, and books have been exhibited/published both nationally and internationally. His current works are explorations (visual) and meditations (poetry) centering on his ideas of spirituality, love, death, shelter, and hope. Books, because of their exterior/interior format, as well as their sequential ordering, have been of particular interest lately. The book as an object allows the viewer to be guided through a thought process as well as evoking time and journey/text and image in an intimate fashion.
