The Visual Arts Visiting Artist Series program brings in a diverse variety of artists for campus talks and public gallery presentations that include visual artists, filmmakers, sculptors, painters, playwrights, essayists, interactive and digital media artists. Each artist presents a talk to students in the BFA program and the public, as well as offering critiques to students in the 4th year of the Visual Arts Program.

The Visiting Artist Series will be held in-person on Mondays at 10 am in the University Theatre (ADM 026) as part of the CCS 150 Creative and Critical Art Theory class. These talks are open to the public.

Join us on Monday, April 8 for a talk with Shawn Serfas, an Associate Professor of Visual Art and Head of the Creative Studies Department, Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies. Although initially drawn to an academic career in the environmental sciences, he pursued Fine Arts and Art History degrees in Saskatchewan as well as a Master of Fine Arts degree in Alberta. He has taught at the University of Alberta and Brock University.

His research interests include contemporary painting concerning relational abstraction, environmental aesthetics, religion, and the landscape, as well as issues bordering abstraction and representation. He has been awarded grants from the Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Arts Council, and the Saskatchewan Arts Board. Shawn has been professionally exhibiting for over twenty years and his work can be found in public and private collections across Canada, the US, Europe, Hong Kong, and the Caribbean.
