Come to art lecture and reception with Andreas and Jennifer Salzman

Sunday, January 27th, 2019

Artists Andreas and Jennifer Salzman will be giving a lecture on their exhibition today at 6 p.m. in the Chehalem Cultural Center ballroom. A reception will follow at 7 p.m. in the Hoover lobby.

The Salzmans have been married for 28 years. They have been practicing artists for the past 28 years as well. Although they work in very different mediums, their work often addresses similar narratives. Both bodies of work discuss matters of relationships and the way those relationships define their lives. All relationships are approached visually with similar connections. Andreas and Jennifer both find themselves working with dialogue about their children, as well as those of their aging parents and loss of loved ones. This exhibition, The Journey, explores these narratives through mixed media sculpture and both traditional and nontraditional photography.

Questions? Contact Jennifer Salzman at jsalzman@georgefox.edu.
