Please join us to listen to Mr. Rodney Ewing speak about his art. All are welcome to this free event that is open to the public.
Rodney Ewing is a working artist living in San Francisco. He has been a resident of the Bay Area for the last 18 years, relocating here after completing his undergraduate degree in printmaking at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, and a Master’s degree at West Virginia University. As an artist, his drawings, installations, and mixed media works focus on his need to intersect body and place, memory and fact, to re-examine human histories, cultural conditions, and events. As an art educator he has six years of experience teaching youth in such diverse environments as West Oakland, San Francisco, and the West Bank of Palestine. He teaches 2D at California College of Art (CCA) to their freshman class. This fondness and ability to work in varied surroundings stems from living abroad with his military family in the United Kingdom and the Philippines. Rodney’s philosophy for teaching art has always been about engaging the students in assignments that not only involve building creative skills, but also work that involves critical thinking because art can be an instrument for more than just creating aesthetically appealing objects, but also for engaging social issues.
