Visual Arts to host Visiting Artist Lecture

The McNeese State University Department of Visual Arts will host the Wade Wolfe Visiting Artist Lecture Series Oct. 19-20 that will feature nationally known artist Peregrine Honig.

During the workshop, Honig will produce an edition of prints using screen printing and relief printing processes. She will also give a free lecture about her work at 1 p.m. Thursday in Room 113 of the Shearman Fine Arts Annex and the content may be unsuitable for young audiences.

Honig attended the Kansas City Art Institute and currently lives and works in Kansas City, Mo. She has had recent solo shows at Dwight Hackett Projects in Santa Fe, N.M., and Jet Artworks in Washington, D.C. Her work has been shown internationally with Gallery Akinci in Amsterdam and Gallery Arcaute in Monterey, Mexico and is in numerous private and public collections including: The Art Institute of Chicago, Yale University Art Gallery, The Fogg Art Museum, The Milwaukee Art Museum, as well as The Whitney Museum of American Art.

Honig made a name for herself when a set of her prints were purchased by the Whitney Museum, establishing her as the youngest living artist to be included in its permanent collection. Her sculptures, imagery and texts explore themes of sexual vulnerability, trends in disease and social hierarchies.
