Bixler / 154 Classroom

Internationally recognized artist and teacher Tom Butter will deliver a slide show lecture on his work. Butter's sculptures have been shown extensively in Europe and the United States. He uses the qualities of steel, fibergalss, wood and mirrors to create relationships between the forms and the space they occupy. A vibrant series of monotypes accompany and complement each sculpture in terms of balance and spatial relationships.

Butter received his bachelor's of fine arts degree from the Philadelphia College of Art and his master's of fine arts degree from Washington University in Missouri. He currently teaches in the graduate program at Parsons School of Design in New York. Butter has also taught at the Rhode Island School of Design and was a visting artist at the Vermon Studio School.

His exhibition record includes solo exhibits at the late Grace Borgenicht's gallery in 1983 and 1984. His recent New York exhibits have been with the Curt Marcus Gallery in New York. This October he had a solo exhibit at the Jaffe and Strauss Galleries in the Hopkins Center at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire.
