Lecture: Visual Artist Gil Scullion

Visual artist Gil Scullion, whose work is on exhibit until Feb. 24 in the Seton Art Gallery, will present a lecture on Wednesday, Feb. 12, at 1 p.m. His exhibit, called “To Have-Have Not,” uses text and stenciled images to create a visual experience that addresses the unequal wealth distribution in America.

“Scullion uses the white space of the gallery and presents viewers with a tug of war, illustrating an ever-present struggle in an unbalanced economy,” says Laura Marsh, director of the Seton Gallery.

Scullion uses the tools of the working class such as cardboard, paint, staples and X-acto knives to create pieces of art. “In an effort to maintain this cash flow,” he states, “the economic elite have systematically reduced the number of jobs for those Americans who work with their hands.”
A Connecticut resident, Scullion has been exhibited throughout Connecticut, New York and Massachusetts. He is an adjunct professor at Manchester (Conn.) Community College, where he teaches courses in modern art literature.

The Seton Art Gallery is open Monday through Wednesday, noon to 6 p.m.; Thursday, 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.; and Friday and Saturday, noon to 4 p.m.
