JadaTalks Presents: Art Education in a Virtual World – The Experiences of an Artist & Educator in 2020

During Paris Art Week, JadaTalks presents a conversation on Art Education in a Virtual World – The Experiences of an Artist & Educator in 2020. Tune in on October 23, 2020 at 11 AM EST to hear from our guest speaker John Selburg​, Assistant Professor of Broward College during this online and live streaming art conversation.

 

If our dreams arise out of the recorded imagery of everyday life, assembled as neurons fire out of context and out of order but with the semblance of sense and reality – then John Selburg’s drawings are somewhat like dreams. The artist, an MFA in Drawing (University of Missouri, 2009), lives on the Atlantic Coast of South Florida, adjacent to protected habitat where tropical flora and fauna thrive. Dense with the likes of endangered orchids, sea turtles, and wild apes, Selburg’s real environment might seem surreal to most. This is the fodder for his compositions, which are created with minimal direct reference and yet thoroughly imagined, with a foot in the far end of reality.
