The Visiting Artist Lecture Series is excited to announce our 2018-19 series, True Fictions. Visiting artists include David Eckard of Portland, Oregon and two Los Angeles artists, Lauren Halsey and Matt Lips. These three artists all explore surreal theatrical elements in their work – each in a different way.

David Eckard received his BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1988. His work has been exhibited internationally at venues such as the Atilier DADO Gallery, the contemporary art gallery of the National Museum of Montenegro. National solo exhibitions include Kim Foster Gallery in New York, Fassbender Gallery in Chicago, Consolidated Works in Seattle and Elizabeth Leach Gallery in Portland. A recent mid-career survey of his work was featured at The Art Gym at Marylhurst University. Eckard has been the recipient of a number of prestigious awards including the Artist Trust Fellowship in 1998, Bonnie Bronson Fellowship in 2010, the Hallie Ford Fellowship in Visual Arts in 2010 and the Regional Arts and Culture Council Individual Artist’s Fellowship in 2015.

David Eckard will be speaking on:

  • Tuesday, Nov 6, Eastern Washington University, Room 116, Art Building, NOON
  • Tuesday, Nov 6, Jundt Art Museum, Gonzaga University, 5:30 PM
  • Wednesday, Nov 7, Spokane Falls Community College, Room 110, Building 24, 11:30 AM

The Visiting Artist Lecture Series (VALS) is a consortium that includes Spokane Falls Community College, The Jundt Art Museum, Eastern Washington University and the Sahlin Foundation. Each year VALS brings three visiting artists to Spokane for free community events that include artist workshops, talks, exhibitions and discussions. VALS is dedicated to the cultural enrichment of the Inland Northwest.
