Bondarchuk To Discuss Mixed-Media At USF

The University of Saint Francis is featuring artist and educator Karen Bondarchuk as part of the School of Creative Arts Closer Look lecture series on Thursday, February 4, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. in the USF North Campus auditorium, 2702 Spring Street.

Bondarchuk will describe her mixed-media installations as they center on the image of the crow and raven and the interwoven relationship that corvids and humans share. Her work examines the complex relationship between humans and corvids and has been exhibited widely in the United States, as well as in Canada, England, Italy and India. Bondarchuk has been the recipient of several fellowships and her work is in the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Canada as well as several other public and private collections.

The USF School of Creative Arts is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD). For more information about the Closer Look lecture series and other School of Creative Arts events, visit
