Contemporary Artist Series: Burk Uzzle - 3:00 PM

Burk Uzzle, who was the youngest photographer ever hired by Life magazine, will give a talk and demonstration on light, shadow and composition. Uzzle is one of three artists who will share how their work connects with the special ticketed exhibition, The Medici’s Painter: Carlo Dolci and 17th-Century Florence. Light and shadow, detail and abstraction, composition and tension, capturing a subject’s gaze—these issues tested old master painters like Carlo Dolci, who influenced many generations of artists. The artists in this series will talk about how they pull from a long tradition of portraiture, how they are inspired by and grapple with faith in their work and how their work connects, and does not connect, to a larger history. This talk is free and open to all, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the North Carolina Arts Council.
