Pratt in Venice inaugurated its celebrations in honor of the 35th year of the program with the exhibition and Art Night 2019 panel, Infinite Jest!
Greg Drasler, Pratt in Venice Painting Professor ('08, '09, '15), is currently exhibiting new paintings in a one-man show at Betty Cuningham Gallery in New York. The exhibition, "Greg Drasler: Road Trip," is on view from June 15 – August 5, 2016.
Painting in Venice was a surreal experience. With UIA's ideal location at the water's edge, its impressively beautiful building, a travel catalogue view from the studio, and the most amazing and accommodating caretaker, Massimo, my experience as a graduate painting student and assistant was beyond incredible.
I look back on my time in the Pratt in Venice program as being an influential point in my life, not only a pleasant experience or an escape from my quotidian occupations but a chance to learn a great deal more about the world and my art than I could have otherwise.
