Art Talks Live! with Elizabeth McFalls

Friday October 2, 2020, 1:00-2:00pm

Elizabeth (Libby) McFalls, the exhibiting artist in the Zoe Golloway Gallery this fall, will give an in-depth talk about her work, a tour of her studio, and answer questions from the Zoom participants. Working in mixed mediums, McFall creates nonlinear visual narratives that examine issues of loss and family. Her work explores moments that blur the line between fact and fiction, life and death, humor and sorrow, moments that demonstrate the contradiction and complexity of life. Elizabeth McFalls is a Professor of Art and the Department of Art’s Art Foundation Coordinator at Columbus State University. She received her MFA in Print Media from Cranbrook Academy of Art and earned her BFA from Columbus College of Art and Design.
