Artists in Residence (AIR)

As active professionals in the field, the resident faculty in painting and drawing is deeply engaged in a contemporary artistic dialog. The Artist-in-Residence Program enriches a student's experience further by regularly bringing new artists from outside the university who are active in the contemporary gallery and museum arenas.

The Artist-in-Residence Program was initiated in 1982. Each semester an invited resident artist teaches both undergraduate and graduate level courses in the painting and drawing curriculum. The AIR program has been highly successful in making a direct connection to the marketplace of ideas that surrounds art centers such as New York City, Chicago, and LA. The artists we bring to campus represent a spectrum of current sensibilities in painting and drawing holding sway in the art world today.

The AIR is integral to the core of the graduate student experience, and adds significantly to the vitality and vibrancy of the dialectic engaged by the various faculty and students of the School of Art.

To an astronomer the term averted vision refers to a means by which the eye can collect more light by not looking directly at an object. This is useful while trying to discern the subtle and faint details of very dim images. Ever since I was a child with a small telescope the idea has stirred me, anyone observing such an obscure fuzzy patch of light by lightly gazing around it may claim to see nothing at all, or one might see a slightly more significant patch of nothing at all.

I lived and worked as an artist in New York from 1990-97, and exhibited my work in solo exhibitions there as well as Boston and Chicago. I have been a recipient of a Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Grant. My work has been written about in publications including The New York times, The Boston Globe, Art News, Art in America and The New Art Examiner. I currently live in a 165 year old log home in Knoxville, TN with my family, and I am flying by the seat of my pants.
