Barbara Zucker, sculptor and UVM professor emerita, will talk about her first book, Animal Sightings, at 5:00 pm on November 10 in the Special Collections reading room.
Published this year in a limited edition of ten, Animal Sightings is a colorful, abstract visual rendering of Zucker’s three-year odyssey driving back and forth between Vermont, New York and Philadelphia as she took note of all the animals she glimpsed along the roadside. Zucker writes, “Each [brush] stroke is flocked and soft, evoking the wonder of catching sight, albeit briefly, of the marvelous creatures that appear at the edges of our roads and highways, there to greet us in our peripheral vision.”
Barbara Zucker is known primarily as a sculptor. She has also done performance, installation, and print editions. Zucker has exhibited nationally and internationally and her work is in collections at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Brooklyn Museum, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Robert Hull Fleming Museum, and the Kresge Art Museum, among others.
The lecture is free and open to the public. For more information about the event, call 656-2138 or email Special Collections
