Visiting Artist Series
Visiting Artist Workshop: Scott Satterwhite
Fri Aug 25th 6:00pm - 8:00pm in the Lewis Bear and Greenhut Galleries
C. Scott Satterwhite, instructor, teaches composition, rhetoric, public writing and literature.
Satterwhite’s main focus is writing and rhetoric, but his interests go further than English composition, studying the connections between anti-slavery poetry of the Romantic era, slave narratives and abolitionist poetry within the context of the 21st century composition and rhetoric classroom. He also takes special interest in small print publications, in particular poetry chapbooks, punk rock zines and other related forms of alternative media.
His passion for understanding the ways in which writers impact history has inspired him to write articles that have historical significance to the Pensacola community, both for academic journals and popular publications. This event will feature an atmospheric reading of poetry and prose as performance, and dialogue. Visiting Artist, Scott Satterwhite, will curate a cast of creative writers who will engage with our current exhibition, Metaphor as Manifestation: Jasper Johns and Robert Motherwell. Satterwhite will focus our attention to Robert Motherwell and Rafael Alberti by immersing us into en experiential zone of understanding. Born from collaboration, these works will be brought into a context by the auditory lingerings of practicing writers. Writers will be considering adjacent contexts to coincide with printing, painting, war, Surrealism, iteration, sound, privilege, and play.
