‘Diptychs and Triptychs’ with Emily Belz, 3/21/19

Join us Thursday, March 21 at 6:30 p.m., for a lively evening of conversation, photo viewing, and connection on the theme of Diptychs and Triptychs, hosted by guest presenter Emily Belz.

PRC Nights are evenings of conversation that are free and open to all. A guest host selects a theme and leads with a presentation of their work. PRC members have the opportunity to show their own work related to that night’s theme and to garner feedback. We provide some food and drink, and everyone is welcome to bring refreshments, too.

Find out more about PRC Nights here, including how to sign up to present your work and what to bring.

Date: Thursday, March 21, 6:30-8 p.m.
Artist Host: Emily Belz
Theme: Diptychs and Triptychs
Location: Lunder Arts Center, Room 321, 1801 Mass Ave, Porter Square, Cambridge. Paid parking is available on the street and in the parking lot behind University Hall (accessed from Roseland Street).

ABOUT THE NIGHT: Do you work with combinations of two, three, or even four images? Do you enjoy joining images together in diptychs or triptychs to either break up a picture plane or to create works of meaningful association? During this PRC Night, we’ll discuss the dynamic potential and possibilities that come from placing images together in groupings of two or more. If diptychs and triptychs are of interest to you, then sign up to share your work, or come to engage and discuss the work and issues at this free evening of conversation.
