The College of Southern Nevada Department of Fine Arts will host an exhibition of oil and acrylic paintings by Brooklyn, New York based artist, Stephanie Serpick. Serpick’s newest work represents a place for grief, depression or isolation on panels representing unmade beds, tossed sheets, and the absence of any human evidence. “Stephanie Serpick: A New Fall” will begin Friday, February 2, 2018 and will run through Saturday, March 10, 2018. Ms. Serpick will participate in a Preview, Artist Talk, and Artist Reception on Thursday, February 1, at 6 p.m. in the Fine Arts Gallery, room H101, on the North Las Vegas Campus.
Stephanie Serpick was born in Baltimore, Maryland, and earned her BFA from Carnegie Mellon University and MFA from the University of Chicago. She has exhibited her work nationally and internationally, and has been a fellow at residencies such as the Florence Trust Studios in London, Ragdale in Illinois, and the Vermont Studio Center. Serpick lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
Speaking of her work, Serpick says; “my most recent paintings, the series A New Fall, are an expression of feeling in dealing with personal issues over the past year or so. These stem from both reactions to current events in our country and the world, as well as personal loss.”
