to Speak at Hopkins Oct. 22
Paul Hotvedt, noted Midwestern landscape painter, will present a digital slide talk on his work on Monday, Oct. 22 at The Johns Hopkins University. "Outside/Inside: Words on Technique and Approach When Painting Outdoors" will begin at 5:30 p.m. in Room 101 of the F. Ross Jones Building, Mattin Center, on the Homewood campus at 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore. Admission is free and open to the public.
Born and raised in Wisconsin, Hotvedt has lived in Lawrence, Kan., with his wife and two children since 1994. He works outdoors, painting the surrounding landscape March through October. He produces roughly 80 plein air oil paintings each year, mostly small pieces on Masonite panels. His work is included in numerous private and corporate collections across the country.
Hotvedt teaches painting and drawing at the Lawrence Arts Center and is a co-founder and committee member of the Kansas Conference on Imagination and Place. He received a B.F.A. from the Tyler School of Art, Temple University in 1978 and his M.F.A. from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 1980. From 1980 to 1985, he worked for the Mayor's Advisory Committee on Art and Culture, painting murals in Baltimore and directing the exhibitions program at School 33 Art Center.
