Artist Lecture: Rebecca Zeiss
Monday, March 2 at 1:30 p.m.
CVA Haigh Auditorium

Her work will be displayed in the CVA Clement Gallery from January 20 - March 2.

Zeiss’s exhibit “Reverence & Irreverence” explores the handling of objects and their assigned or remembered memories. Zeiss spent time with artifacts given to her by family and strangers over time. While lighting and composing the original photographs, Zeiss first looked for signs of past stories, possibilities, and potential mysteries. She would then arrive at and express the sublime understanding of the experiences the objects have, or likely had, witnessed. These perceptions are presented in a variety of formats ranging from ultraviolet images printed on brushed aluminum to hand-made, multi-image large format platinum/palladium prints.

Zeiss majored in art at Delta College, received a BFA from the University of Michigan and an MFA from Central Michigan University. She is currently a graphic arts designer for the Clarke Historical Library in Mount Pleasant, and also teaches photography at the University of Michigan (Flint), Delta College, and Saginaw State University.
