William Powhida Visiting Artist Lecture Date: Tuesday, March 25 Time: 6 p.m. Location: E242
William Powhida (b. 1976, New York) is an artist and critic living and working in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. He earned his BFA from Syracuse University, and an MFA from Hunter College. William Powhida’s work displays a detailed fascination with the politics of access and the powers that control the assignment of value in the art world. These often humorous commentaries and criticisms are presented in beautiful trompe l’oeil compositions that use various combinations of graphite, gouache, and colored pencil on either panel or paper. He is represented by Platform Gallery in Seattle, and Charlie James Gallery in Los Angeles, and by Postmasters Gallery in NYC, where he currently has a solo exhibition.
