Painter Catherine Murphy will present a talk about her work on Monday, November 6, 2017, at 2:30 p.m., at the University of Hartford in the Harry Jack Gray Center’s Wilde Auditorium. The talk is free and open to the public and is part of Murphy’s guest artist visit to the University of Hartford’s Hartford Art School, made possible by The Beatrice Fox Auerbach Foundation Fund of the Hartford Art School Endowment, Inc. Auerbach Lecture artists are brought to campus twice each semester for one to two days, and during that time they deliver public lectures and spend time in the studios critiquing student work.
Murphy lives and works in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. She studied at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine, and received a BFA from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, N.Y. She has been awarded National Endowment for the Arts Grants and a Guggenheim Fellowship, and was elected a member of the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. In 2014, she was awarded the Robert de Niro Sr. prize for distinguished mid-career American artists. In January 2017, she had a solo exhibition at Peter Freeman, Inc.—her first since the publication of a comprehensive monograph co-published by Skira Rizzoli and Peter Freeman, Inc.—that spanned the entirety of her work.
