Beck, Bielen and Michaud
An exhibition of work by PAFA alumni Stanley Bielen (Cert. '80), Nicole Michaud (Cert. '12) and Stephanie Beck (MFA '07).
Bielen’s contemplative still life and landscape paintings convey a subtle infusion of light and texture. Bielen's work is part of the collections of the Hirshorn Museum, CBS Television and Goldman Sachs.
Michaud’s paintings and mixed media pieces are intimate landscapes imbued with color and energy. Michaud was the 2011 recipient of the Benjamin West Prize - Special Notice, and the Second Place recipient of the 2009 Susan Eakins McDowell Figure Painting Competition at the PAFA.
Beck’s work is inspired by structures in spaces, and the changes that take place over time as we move through them. She will be exhibiting several sculptural pieces made out of white paper that can be construed as buildings, or building blocks that she uses to illustrate human frailties.
The opening reception on Wednesday, April 22, from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. will be open to PAFA alumni, students, members, and special guests. The gallery will be open to the public following the reception, from 7:30 - 9:00 p.m.
