The Big Small World of Red Nose Studio: Exhibit by award-winning Animator/Illustrator Chris Sickels
November 7 - December 15, 2011
The Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University welcomes guest artist Chris Sickels to the Main Gallery, where the celebrated animator and illustrator will display his work from Nov. 7 to Dec. 15.
The exhibit features sculptures, drawings, sketches and videos by the artist, who is creator and director of the award-winning Red Nose Studio.
Sickels builds his 3-D illustrations from a variety of materials, creating sets and puppets from a combination of wire, fabric, cardboard, wood, miniatures and found objects. His endearing characters and intricate sets draw in the viewer with wit, whimsy and charm.
Sickels will give a special lecture on Thursday, Nov. 10 at 6:30 p.m., which is also free and open to the public.
