Please join Crow’s Shadow in welcoming Modou to our studio. This will be a chance to meet the artist, listen to him describe his process, and see the prints he will have worked on during his residency.
Modou Dieng is an Associate Professor of Painting and Drawing at the Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA) in Portland, Oregon. Dieng often works in mixed media, incorporating painting, collage, and photography into colorful pop-eclectic installations. Raised in Dakar, Senegal, his peripatetic adventures took him to Paris, Brussels, New York, and San Fransisco before landing in Portland. Dieng holds an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in Painting and New Genres (2006) and a BFA in Painting from the École Nationale des Beaux-Arts, Senegal (1995). Among his many accomplishments, Dieng founded and curated the influential Worksound Gallery in SE Portland (2007-12). In addition to his own art making and teaching, he continues to have an active international curatorial practice connecting people and spaces. This will be Dieng’s first residency at Crow’s Shadow.
The reception is free and open to the public.
Light refreshments will be served.
