Jerome Witkin, the noted American artist who has also been on the art faculty of Syracuse University since 1971, has a new retrospective exhibition of his works called “Drawn to Paint” that will run at the SUArt Galleries on the S.U. campus through October 23rd, and also at the XL Projects Gallery in downtown Syracuse from September 15th through October 16th. Many of his works use multiple panels, and also deal with such themes of modern times as 9/11 and the Holocaust. Professor Witkin talks with Marie Lamb at the SUArt Galleries about his work.
UPDATE: We would also like to share Jerome Witkin’s portrait of Marie Lamb, which he decided to do after the interview. It is called “Marie Lamb, The Chatterbox,” referring humorously to her work in radio. It was painted between September 2011 and March 2012. Mr. Witkin has graciously loaned the portrait to WCNY-FM for display in their studios, and we thank him for that and for his continued interest in our station.
