Jackie Rae Wloski -- Members' Day Lecture

The traditional Members' Day talk is, unsurprisingly, given by one of our artist members, and this year Jackie Rae Wloski spoke to us about her work and the ideas and processes behind her finished pieces. Jackie works in a wide range of mediums, improvising, experimenting, and using whatever techniques make the piece work. Many subjects are revisited, creating a theme and variations over the years. She showed us a great number of slides, covering highlights from a career that has included not just personal art work, but also design assignments with Import Bazaar and Pratt and Whitney. Here are a few pictures from the talk.
