Fall 2015 AIR – Caitlin Keogh
“Caitlin Keogh is a painter whose work plays with, and undermines, the traditional relationship between technical illustration and painting. Her use of pattern and decoration suggests that we approach the construction of imagery and its efficacy of communication with our eyes wide open.” _Piper Marshall

About the Artist-in-Residence in Painting & Drawing at UTK
The Artist-in-Residence Program was initiated in 1982. Each semester an invited resident artist teaches both undergraduate and graduate level courses in the painting and drawing curriculum. The AIR program has been highly successful in making a direct connection to the marketplace of ideas that surrounds art centers such as New York City, Chicago, and LA. The artists we bring to campus represent a spectrum of current sensibilities in painting and drawing holding sway in the art world today.
The AIR is integral to the core of the graduate student and undergraduate student experience, and adds significantly to the vitality and vibrancy of the dialectic engaged by the various faculty and students of the School of Art.
