Pitt-Bradford Spectrum series to host visiting artist exhibition

BRADFORD, Pa. – The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford’s Spectrum Series will host visiting artist Ron Geibel and his exhibition titled “Picture Perfect” from Nov. 7 to Dec. 5 in the KOA Art Gallery in Blaisdell Hall.

The exhibition opening is scheduled for noon on Nov. 7 in the KOA Speer Electronics Lobby in Blaisdell Hall and will include a gallery talk in which Geibel will discuss and present some of his work; a reception will follow.

Geibel, who currently resides in White Plains, N.Y., tries to create objects that reference the private parts of peoples’ lives.

According to his website, Geibel confronts matters concerning sexuality, gender and identity, and other issues that are typically kept hidden.

Anna Lemnitzer, assistant professor of art and a colleague of Geibel, said, “The reason I chose (Geibel) to visit was because of the gender issues he brings up.”

It’s important to have a contemporary artist featured who works with this kind of content, she said.
In an effort to reach out to other students, Lemnitzer added, Geibel will be offering constructive criticism of students’ work and host a ceramics workshop.

Geibel received his Master of Fine Arts from the University of Montana and has previously been an artist in residence at Red Lodge Clay Center and The Chautauqua Institutions School of Art. He is currently an adjunct professor of ceramics at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y.
