SCF to Host Artist’s Talk by Steven Katzman Feb. 19

(Bradenton, Fla., February 12, 2014) — State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF) Fine Art Gallery will host an artist’s talk by photojournalist Steven Katzman at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 19, in the Fine Art Gallery at SCF Bradenton, 5840 26th St. W., building 11 North, off 60th Avenue West between 26th and 34th streets, accessible from parking lots H or I. The event is free and open to the public.

In “Developing a Personal Vision While Negotiating the Interpretive Portrait,” Katzman will provide an in-depth view of his artistic practice and reveal many of his trade secrets. He will answer questions following the presentation.
On display in the SCF Fine Art Gallery is Katzman’s exhibit, "This Miserable Kingdom," a photographic survey documenting the continued survival of the Pojoaque Pueblo in New Mexico, which has been repeatedly victimized because of its religious, cultural and historical identity.

Katzman is a self-taught photographer whose longtime interest in political science has influenced his photographic journey. Most of his photographs exemplify the late 20th century post-modernist notion that art should be political in nature. Katzman's artistic expressions inspire his viewers to contemplate each photograph to arrive at its ultimate message.

The exhibit runs through April 2. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. Monday - Friday. The gallery will be closed March 2-9 for Spring Break. For more information, call Joe Loccisano, gallery manager, at 941-752-5225. Maps and directions are online at
