Keely Orgeman and Julia Rooney in Conversation: Sep. 18 @ 3pm
Please join us for an artist talk at Jennifer Terzian Gallery with Keely Orgeman, Seymour H. Knox, Jr., Associate Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Yale University Art Gallery and artist Julia Rooney, whose show Screen Shot is currently on view. Rooney and Orgeman will discuss the influence digital technology has had on the medium of painting, from the perspective of artist and curator respectively—particularly in the age of social media and through the Covid-19 pandemic
