Iowa artist Rose Frantzen will talk about her recent studio and public works of art at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 4, in the Kingland Hub. The event will offer an opportunity to hear about Frantzen’s artistic philosophy and process and to view updates on her new mural, which will be installed later in the year in the Lynn A. and Diane Engh Anderson Family Gallery in the recently opened expansion to the Gerdin Business Building.
This in-person event will have limited audience capacity and requires pre-registration. Face masks are required and appropriate physical distancing will be observed.
A native of Maquoketa, Iowa, Frantzen has gained national and international acclaim for her oil paintings from life that bring contemporary perspectives to a traditional “alla prima” approach. In addition to landscapes, still lifes, and figurative works, Frantzen creates serial and allegorical works, incorporating abstract or surreal settings.
A new exhibition, Perceptions of Identity: Paintings by Rose Frantzen, is on view through July 30 at the Christian Petersen Art Museum in Morrill Hall. The museum is open 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m., Monday-Friday, throughout the semester. Admission is free, with a recommended donation of $8.
Major support for the exhibition is provided by the Debbie and Jerry Ivy College of Business.
