Art Talk

When: Sun., Nov. 8, 2 p.m. 2015

Join artist Jimmie Nord for Art Talk at the Morris Graves Sunday, November 8 at 2 p.m. Jimmie is this year’s juror for the annual Junque Arte competition and exhibition at the Morris Graves, showing now through November 15. Jimmie’s passion for sculpture and the use of re-purposed materials in art was fueled when he entered the Kinetic Sculpture Race for the first time in 2004. Jimmie then transferred to Humboldt State University as an Art major. While attending, he was commissioned by the City of Arcata to create two sculptures that are currently displayed near the Plaza. After graduating from Humboldt State in 2010, he decided to pursue his Masters of Fine Arts, moving to Louisiana to attend. While attending LSU, Jimmie taught 3D Design, Beginning Sculpture, and was a founding member of Elevator Project, an artist collective in Baton Rouge. After receiving his MFA from LSU in 2014, Jimmie returned to Humboldt County and is currently represented by Contemporain Bankston/Adams Gallery in Baton Rouge, a member of the Redwood Art Association, a lecturer for 3D Design at Humboldt State University, and works out of his studio in Eureka. To learn more about Jimmie’s work and the annual Junque Arte show at the Morris Graves, join us for Art Talk at the Morris Graves. Art Talk is a regular monthly program featuring currently exhibiting and local artists on the first Sunday of each month at the Morris Graves Museum of Art, located at 636 F Street in Eureka.
