Join Tephra ICA every third Thursday of the month for Art After Hours! Stop by the gallery between 5-8pm to enjoy hors d'oeuvres, drinks, music, contemporary art, and special programming. Free and open to the public.
On Thursday, February 15th, Art After Hours will highlight a Creative Response to the exhibition on view starting at 6pm. Join American University Professor Andy Holtin for a multi-sensory experience inspired by Kendall Buster that will help us look at artworks through a new lens. In Holtin’s installation SEEN/SEED, he takes the work of Buster as territory for perceptual interventions, highlighting its incessant shift between model and monument, vessel, and place.
Andy Holtin received his MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University’s Sculpture and Exended Media program. Using technological systems to create perfomative objects and interactive installations, Holtin incorporates an exploratory range of materials and processes in projects that explore mechanism as metaphor for human experience and perception. His work has been exhibited widely both nationally and internationally. Holtin is an Associate Professor of Sculpture at American University in Washington, DC.
