Who, Why and When: A Personal Look at Our Gallery's Artist Selection Process

Lecture    4 PM     4th Floor Lecture Hall

Roger Ricco, co- founder and owner of Ricco/ Maresca Gallery and co- author of a number of now classic books on the field of self-taught and outsider art will describe the wholly intuitive manner in which he personally–and in due course his gallery–selects and chooses to represent many contemporary artists,  whether self-taught  or emerging career artists. His talk will present abundant visuals of works by artists they are currently representing.

Roger Ricco is also known for his personal art career working in both photography and painting in the U.S. He is the recipient of the prestigious Prix d' Rome in painting from the American Academy in Rome. He also speaks widely on the subject of the creative process of people on the autism/Aspergers spectrum.  Examples of some of these artists’ works will also be discussed.
