ARTIST TALK AND GALLERY WALKTHROUGH | Marc Trujillo in conversation with Robert Storr, Quattlebaum Artist-in-Residence
Saturday, September 16, 2:00pm
Halsey Institute Galleries

Join us in the Halsey Institute galleries on Saturday, September 16 at 2pm for an artist talk with Marc Trujillo in conversation with Quattlebaum Artist-in-Residence Robert Storr for Trujillo’s exhibition American Purgatory

The paintings of Marc Trujillo portray quotidian scenes: fast food restaurants, big box store aisles, the long terminal corridors of airports, and so on. The scenes are remarkably unremarkable. In their ubiquitous nature, the paintings present an anti-place: scenes that refer not to a specific place, but to uncannily similar tableaus that unfold everyday in communities across America.
