Los Angeles–based artist Robert Therrien creates work sourced from memory and everyday objects such as snowmen, card tables, oil cans, keyholes, and a stack of plates. By playing with scale, color, and repetition, he turns these humble ingredients into surreal configurations that are both powerful and subtle. Come and see the Robert Therrien exhibition, learn about the artist, create lesson plan ideas to use with your students through hands-on activities, and receive information on upcoming exhibitions and events.

Space is limited and pre-registration is required. To register, please contact 716.270.8283, or, by September 13, 2013.
