Tuseday-Saturday, September 24-28, 2019 

In Conversation artist Anne Vieux will use Gallery 1104 as a pop-up working studio during her residency week during Tarble open hours. During the residency, she will co-facilitate three workshops with high-school-aged students and have her studio open for visitors on Saturday during EIU’s Family Weekend. 

Vieux’s artwork combines digital processes with painting processes and explores the effects of light, scale, and materiality through abstraction. Her process involves scanning holographic paper then pushing the limits of the image data through zooming, warping, and repetition. Vieux is an alum of EIU’s MA in Studio Art program.
