Sam Blanchard to be featured in Sleeth Gallery
“Sam Blanchard: New Work” will be featured in Sleeth Gallery at West Virginia Wesleyan College at an opening reception on Thursday, February 16 from 4:30-6 pm. Immediately following the reception, Blanchard will give an artist lecture about his process and the technology involved in making his sculptures. The exhibition will run February 16-March 10, showing Monday-Friday, by appointment.
Blanchard utilizes digital-based fabrication methods to interweave materials with technology platforms to become extended metaphors of human experience in the age of ubiquitous computer interaction. Projects take a wide variety of forms from hybrid sculptures and installation, to interactive environments and video.
He is currently assistant professor of Studio Art in the School of Visual Arts at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, VA. He received his bachelor of fine art degree in 2002 from Ohio University and master of fine art in sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design. He has an active international exhibition record, with solo exhibitions at such venues as the Las Vegas Contemporary Art Center, the Delaware Center for Contemporary Art and The New Gallery (Calgary, ON). His collaborative work in the fields of computer science and engineering have been presented at South-by-Southwest, World Maker Faire and the ACM SIGGRAPH Conference amongst other high profile venues.
The Sleeth Gallery is located on the first floor of McCuskey Hall at West Virginia Wesleyan College at the intersection of East Main St. and College Ave in Buckhannon, WV. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Admission is free.
