Three Upcoming Lectures at SCAD – Colleen Duffley, George Kartis, and Joyce Tenneson


Here are three lectures coming up at Savannah College of Art and Design. Honestly, I try to make all I can but I often miss them because I get so caught up in my own work – and they are sometimes scheduled during my classes or work hours. However, if any of you out there are really interested in knowing something about one of them, let me know and I’ll do my best to cover it for you. SCAD Style events are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted.

April 8
“Capturing Style: A Photographer’s Perspective” Lecture by Colleen Duffley
Wednesday, 11 a.m., Pei Ling Chan Gallery, 322 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Savannah, Ga.
For 25 years, Colleen Duffley has circled the globe photographing people, places and things for Metropolitan Home, Neiman Marcus, British Homes and Gardens, House Beautiful and Volkswagen. Her inspiring use of light and detail in her photographs brings stories and scenes to life with personality.

April 16
“Chiaroscuro: The Use and Relevance of Light in Different Aspects of Creation” Lecture by George Kartis
Thursday, 2 p.m., Pei Ling Chan Gallery, 322 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Savannah, Ga.
Fashion photographer George Kartis discusses chiaroscuro and how the lighting technique inspires photographers, painters, sequential artists and sculptors. Since 1980, Kartis has been a professional freelance print and fashion photographer and artistic director whose stories and portraits have been published around the world and have appeared in international fashion magazines.

May 6
“A Life in Photography” Lecture by Joyce Tenneson
Wednesday, 6 p.m., Pei Ling Chan Gallery, 322 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Savannah, Ga.
Haunting, ethereal, pensive, mystical – all of these words describe the photographic style of Joyce Tenneson. Her pictures command a complex and intense emotional response from the viewer, which has made Tenneson one of the leading photographers of her generation. Tenneson tells stories from her 40-year career as one of America’s foremost fine art photographers.
