Eric Telfort Exhibit Coming to UHD


According to the Gallery, "Eric Telfort was born to Haitian immigrants in Little Haiti, Miami, Florida. He has earned a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design, and an MFA from the New York Academy of Art. He has taught at the University of Rhode Island, Providence and currently teaches at the Rhode Island School of Design. His work speaks to the resourcefulness of boys and girls to create in modest conditions and the influence of popular culture and celebrity on that short but remarkable time of childhood. Telfort's painted figures might also suggest a reflection on the process of growing up and how that experience prefigures the lives of adult individuals."

An opening reception for the show will be held Oct. 24. For more information about the Gallery or the show, visit the website here.
