this Saturday February first from 3-6 pm. meet Michael TORLEN @ ARTLAB78


Please join us this Saturday February first  from 3-6 pm and meet Michael Torlen 

Michael Torlen is Professor Emeritus, School of Art+Design, Purchase College, SUNY. 
Carl Little, art critic and author, has said of the artist’s work: “Torlen invites his viewers to explore layers of memory and mediums, and to join him in creating a narrative out of the ‘seamarks’ of life and art.” 

The exhibition will be open to the public in presence of the artist on three consecutive Saturdays February 1, 8, and 15 from 3-6 PM. In Addition, on February 8 there will be a conversation with the artist and Julian Kreimer, painter and critic for Art in America at 4 PM. Seamarks includes paintings, watercolors, monotypes, and editions inspired by his family's history and his experiences as a boy aboard ship with his Norwegian-born father and as a crewmember on a commercial tuna boat.

Mr. Torlen’s work has been reviewed in Art in America and Artforum and appears in Little’s 2006 book, Paintings of Maine. Mr. Torlen’s work is in numerous museums, corporate, and private collections.
