Artist Adriane Herman illustrates human intention through grocery lists

UMKC Department of Art and Art History hosts lecture Jan. 26

Artist Adriane Herman will present an artist's lecture, "Checking it Twice," at the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) College of Arts and Sciences' Department of Art and Art History at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 26 in Room 106 of UMKC's Fine Arts Building, 5015 Holmes, Kansas City, Mo. The event is free and open to the public.

"Checking It Twice," her 2007 solo exhibition at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, follows human intention toward action through grocery and other to-do lists. Combining drawing and printmaking processes with ceramic media, "Checking It Twice" illustrates human commitments, tastes, priorities, accomplishments and procrastinations. Herman opened a similar exhibit - "Pick Me Up (a few things)" - Jan. 23 at the Kansas City Jewish Museum of Contemporary Art.

An internationally-published artist, Herman earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Smith College and a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She has taught at the Kansas City Art Institute and Maine College of Art, where she is an associate professor.
