Jennifer Frias and Tyler Stallings: Works by Joe Biel

Jennifer Frias and Tyler Stallings (UC Riverside): $1,000.00 for Works by Joe Biel. Co-Sponsorship

UCR ARTSblock presents Sentry: Works by Joe Biel, a solo museum exhibition featuring a series of large-scale, two-dimensional drawings on paper and a monumental drawing installation specifically produced on-site at the Culver Center of the Arts, which will be drawn during a sixteen day artist residency. He will also provide a lecture on campus, graduate student studio visits, a public walk-through of the exhibition and a public workshop. Biel’s residency is one of the several that have occurred over the years at ARTSblock in conjunction with the exhibitions. Personal contact with the artists by the students and the general public is important to an artistically underserved community such as Riverside. Working primarily with watercolor, graphite and colored pencils, Biel’s figurative drawings are loosely composed in panoramic landscapes with latent narratives that tamper with the complexity and irony of human existence. UCR ARTSblock must seek external funds for programs as funding from the University is only for staff and facilities.
