Join us on Saturday, Oct. 29 for a conversation with artists from “On the Edge: Los Angeles Art 1970s-1990s from the Joan and Jack Quinn Family Collection.” Featuring artists Laddie John Dill, Gregory Wiley Edwards, and Joe Fay.

Artist Panel 2:00 – 3:30 p.m.
Reception 3:30 – 5:00 p.m.

Laddie John Dill gained notoriety with materials such as glass, metal, neon, and cement. His work embodies gesture and dynamic physical presence through its use of industrial materials.

The abstract expressionism of Gregory Wiley Edwards is highly influenced by performance, activism, and his investigations into African art and philosophy.

Joe Fay gleaned a philosophy of experimentation that motivates his practice. Inspired by the natural world, his work explores the limit of each material to effectively celebrate the subject.

The panel will be moderated by Bolton Colburn, Curator of Collections and Exhibitions at Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art.

Armenian Museum of America, 65 Main St., Watertown, MA
