Pittsburgh artist lectures at SRU

SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. - Emily Walley, a Pittsburgh sculpture and video artist who uses video to convey the relationship of time and movement, will present a visiting artist lecture at Slippery Rock University from 12:30-2 p.m., March 12 in the Art Building.

The lecture is free and open to the public.

Walley collaborates with artist David Bernabo to produce pieces that attempt to be honest, albeit absurd, portrayals of the creative process.

The duo's "This May Not Take Long" exhibit opened in February at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. "This May Not Take that Long" is a video piece that reflects on the process of creating collaborative artwork.

Walley has a master of fine arts degree from West Virginia University and has taught at the Mattress Factory Museum in Pittsburgh and at Fairmont State University. Her art has been exhibited at the Modern Formations Gallery in Pittsburgh, West Virginia University and elsewhere.

Barbara Westman, SRU assistant professor of art, is coordinating Walley's visit to SRU.
