MINT is pleased to announce an artist talk by Charlie Lucas for his solo exhibition at MINT. Also well known as the “Tin Man,” Lucas is a self-taught artist who is known for his figurative paintings and sculptures made from found objects and salvaged materials. Lucas transforms these humble materials into vehicles of personal narrative relating to the people and experiences of the Southeast. The exhibition, “In Transition” will feature a curated selection of Charlie Lucas’ sculptural and painting works alongside found and unfinished materials from his studio, to serve as a document of his studio practice and artistic process.The exhibition dates for this show are February 20, 2015 with an artist talk on February 21st at 1PM. Additionally, we have an incredible opportunity for child artists: Charlie Lucas will be giving a children’s workshop on Saturday, February 21st from 10AM to 11:30AM. Space is very limited, and this is for older children ages 8 to 14 only. Please email to RSVP, and include children’s names, ages, and a valid contact phone number and email address. Limit 2 children per household due to the small size of the workshop. We will have a wait list, and will confirm attendance the day before the workshop.
