ARTIST GIVES LECTURE , ART EXHIBIT THROUGH NOV. 17 AT AUBURN

AUBURN -- Randy Williams, one of three artists whose work is currently being exhibited at Auburn University, will give a slide show and lecture on Monday, Nov. 6.

Williams, along with Dan Mills and Gail Skudera, are exhibiting their works at AU's Biggin Hall Gallery. The exhibition, titled "Superimpositions" will last through Nov. 17.

Williams lecture will be at 4 p.m. in Biggin Hall, Room.

Since the mid 1970s, Williams has created works on paper, book constructions and site-specific room installations. From his perspective as an African-American artist raised in the urban North and rural South, Williams addresses a wide scope of social issues in his work.

Chair and professor of art and education at Manhattanville College, Williams is also a lecturer/instructor at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and is also artistic director at the New York State Summer School of the Arts.

The exhibition, which is open during normal business hours, deals with the artists' personal and cultural history and memory.
