Tyler Alumnua Featured in Solo Museum Exhibition

Author: tuf83247

Tyler School of Art and Architecture alumna Lisa Yuskavage (BFA ’84) is featured in Lisa Yuskavage: Wilderness, currently on view at the Aspen Art Museum. The exhibition looks beyond the eroticism of the figure to the fantastical nature of Yuskavage’s landscapes. In a recent interview with The New York Times, Yuskavage reflects on her time at Tyler, in particular, recalling two moments that were indicators of her development: the creation of a painting entitled, “Once Transient,” and the sale of her first work. “I had a BFA thesis show… and it did extremely well,” said Yuskavage. “My dentist came and bought a big painting. I was kind of amazed.” Read More

Author: tuf83247

Tyler School of Art and Architecture alumnus in Glass, Nate Ricciuto (MFA ’15) has recently received the 2020 Saxe Emerging Artist Award from the Glass Art Society along with two other artists, Gracia Nash and Joshua Kerley. According to Dorthy Saxe, the philanthropist for whom the award is named, this distinguished award “gives young artists the opportunity to present their work at a conference…[and] gives [them] exposure… [P]eople would be well to attend and hear the revolutionary ideas of these young artists.”  Nate and the other award winners will present their work to a large audience of established artists, educators, peers, collectors, art historians and critics in Sweden later this year in May during the Annual Glass Art Society conference—a membership-based international non-profit organization that supports and encourages glass arts and artists.   Read More

Vivien Wise: Exploring Relationships and Trees Through Art

Author: Zachary Vickers

This article originally appeared on Temple Ambler Campus's website here and was written by Jim Duffy, MSEd, Content Manager, Temple University Ambler and University College.   It’s difficult for Vivien Wise to recall a time when she wasn’t using her skills with fibers to turn ideas into reality. “I’ve been on this path for a long time. My mom and my grandmothers were quilters — I finished my first quilt when I was eight,” said Wise, a Fibers & Material Studies FMA student in Temple’s Tyler School of Art and Architecture. “When I was in high school, I visited an exhibition, a crocheted art piece called the Coral Reef Project. It was the first time that I realized that fibers could be art. I knew that was what I wanted to do with my life.” Read More
