Gavish will present an artist lecture at Marketview Arts, co-hosted by the York Art Association, on August 23, 2023, from 6-7 p.m., free to the public. Guests will have the opportunity to socialize prior to the lecture, from 5-6 p.m.; light refreshments will be provided.
Gavish will also judge Creative York’s exhibition titled “Explore My Mind,” which will run from August 19 to September 16. An opening reception will be held on Thursday, August 24, from 6-8 p.m. in the Kerlin Gallery, where Gavish will provide remarks on the winning selections.
Michal Gavish is a multimedia artist and art writer sharing her time between New York City and Washington, DC. She creates translucent fabric installations and videos that are inspired by her past work as research scientist and her ongoing collaborations with biologists at Stanford University, UCSF, and CUNY. For her, neurons, viruses, proteins, and crystals are not abstractions—they are figures, objects, and nano-scale landscapes, which inform scientists’ communal imagination. She received her MFA in painting from the San Francisco Art Institute and her PhD in physical chemistry from CUNY. Website: https://www.michalgavish.com
