Insight Sunday with Almond Zigmund
Join us for the first Insight Sunday of 2023 with renowned artist Almond Zigmund! Zigmund kicks off the Spring season of our popular series that provides an in-depth look at the process, techniques, and concepts of art, straight from the maker’s point of view. Insight Sundays will now be held the last Sunday of each month and are free to members. Also new for this year, we are pleased to hold advance viewings of the artist’s work. Drop by the Church to preview two new works by Zigmund, which will be on view from January 6th through the 29th. Enjoy your Sunday morning on January 29th with the vibrant and colorful works and the artist’s talk.
Originally from Brooklyn, Zigmund received a BFA from Parsons School of Design in New York and Paris and an MFA from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, where she studied art theory and criticism with the MacArthur Award-winning critic Dave Hickey. Zigmund makes large-scale site-responsive installations, discrete sculptures, works on paper, and paintings. Combining crisp geometry, vivid color, and intricate patterns, Zigmund’s sculptures and installations often suggest walls, barricades, enclosures, and other aspects of the built environment. The architectonic works engage the eye and the body at once, offering generous amounts of visual stimulation while also inducing visceral reactions to the virtual and actual spaces.
Insight Sundays are the ultimate behind-the-scenes sneak peek into an artist’s mind. Join us for a fantastic opportunity to hear Almond Zigmund focus on her two works, see them through her eyes, and explore how it relates to her career and process.
