Cornish Art Department Alumni are making news in the local, national, and international communities. Please join us on Thursday, September 27 from 6:30 to 8 pm for a presentation by two of our graduates as they discuss their experiences when chosen as part of 14 artists selected out of thousands to compete on “Work of Art: The Next Great Artist” -an American reality competition that aired on Bravo Television.
The event is free and open to the public. The entrance to the Senior Studios in the Visual Arts Complex is on Terry Avenue, between Lenora and Virginia Streets.
Mark Velasquez describes himself as a frycook by day and a photographer by night, currently living in southern California. He received his BFA in 2000 and while at Cornish he studied drawing, sculpture, and performance art. In 2010 his first book on photography, Show and Tell, an 80-page book collecting his photographs and thoughts on six models he worked with in his early career, was published. In 2010, he also launched NSFW (Not Safe For Work) magazine, a quarterly text and photography publication. His photography has been published in many newspapers and magazines in the States and abroad and in January he had a solo exhibition at his new galley WORK, in Brooklyn.
With a MFA from California State University, Long Beach, and a BFA from Cornish College of the Arts, Jazz-Minh Moore is a full-time artist. She lives in NYC and has received numerous grants and scholarships including a NYFA Fellowship. Jazz-Minh has had solo shows in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Paris, and has been featured in various publications, including Interview Magazine, Whitehot Magazine, and American Art Collector, among others. In 2009, she co-founded the NYC based art
collective, Gutbox. Jazz-Minh’s work is represented by Lyons Wier Gallery NYC, with whom she recently had a solo show.
The 2012-2013 Art Department Visiting Artists Program is made possible with generous support from The Catherine Eaton Skinner and David Skinner Visiting Artist Fund, The Thelma Lehmann Endowed Fund, and the Maybelle Clark Macdonald Fund.
