Imaginary mapmaker Jerry Gretzinger is the next “Talk About Art” interview, Sunday, Feb. 7, 2 p.m. at the Glen Arbor Art Association, 6031 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor.
For more than 30 years Cedar artist Jerry Gretzinger has been mapping Ukrania, an imaginary place he began envisioning in the 1980s. Using simple tools and humble materials – recycled pasteboard, colored pencils, acrylic paint, magazine images – Gretzinger has created and charted a world comprised of more than 3,000 8” X 10 “ card panels, which cover an estimated 1,500 square feet. Sections of Jerry’s Map have been exhibited in galleries from Frankfort, Michigan, to Paris, France, with many stops along the way. Gretzinger will talk about the project that has sustained his creative focus for three-plus decades.
“Talk About Art,” now in its eighth year, is a series of conversational interviews with area artists and makers. The series moves this year to Sunday afternoons from its traditional Thursday evening time slot. For more information please call 231/334-6112.
