Following the lecture at 5:30 p.m., attendants may have dinner and attend a Q&A session with Rath in the Levin Room. A dinner buffet may be purchased from the Bethany cafeteria in Pihlblad Memorial Union.
Rath, a drawer and painter, describes his work as personal narrative with content coming from childhood memories. Popular culture is also an important influence. He uses distorted forms, dynamic compositions, and expressionistic color to communicate the emotional subtext. “By capturing images on canvas, I am able to affect the way in which our world will be remembered by future generations,” says Rath.
While at Bethany, Rath will also work with students in drawing and painting classes. Learn more about Rath and his work at www.edrath.com.
