Totally Tuesday Talks: Celeste Roberge discusses her sculpture Chaise Gabion at OMAA

Tuesday, July 20, 2021 @ 5:00PM - 6:00PM, Online

Artist Celeste Roberge will discuss her work Chaise Gabion, currently on view in OMAA’s sculpture park and gardens. Roberge will reflect on the material culture and geological processes that led her to consider what the “chaise” represents in an art historical context and what it means within her own practice. Roberge presents Chaise Gabion alongside some of her other projects such as the photograph, Algae Dreams, and her sculpture series, Stacks, to complicate traditional depictions of women in art history, as well as the role of women in art patronage, and notions of function and monumentality.

Celeste Roberge was born in Maine and received her art education at the Maine College of Art, the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. She is Professor Emerita of the University of Florida, College of the Arts after twenty-two years as Head of Sculpture in the School of Arts + Art History. She maintains a studio in South Portland, Maine.
