Brett Reichman, a painter and associate professor of painting at the San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI) will speak at Hamilton College in its Visiting Artist Series on Wednesday, Feb. 6, at 4:15 p.m., in the Bradford Auditorium, KJ. The event is sponsored by Hamilton’s Art Department and is free and open to the public.
Reichman received his master’s degree from the University of California at Berkley in 1984. His work is considered a detailed approach to realism which addresses issues of identity; he often employs exaggeration and fanciful staging to question societal norms. He has created numerous exhibitions, most recently Simulations, in 2010 at Gallery Paule Anglim, in San Francisco; Silence, Exile and Cunning, in 2010 at Sonoma Valley Museum of Art, in Sonoma, Calif.; and Pacific Light: A Survey of California Watercolor 1908-2008, in 2008 at the Nordic Watercolor Museum in Skärhamn, Sweden.
