The artists will discuss their artwork on The Greenway and their studio practices.
Meredith James' interactive optical illusion artwork, "Far from this setting in which I now find myself," has been a favorite photo stop for visitors of all ages, while Mark Reigelman's "The Meeting House" has been praised for "upending expectations" for the public. James and Reigelman will each present their work followed by audience Q&A.
Free and open to the public.

About the artists:
Meredith James works in video, sculpture, and theater to explore mechanisms of perception and the fallibility of observation, revealing the surprising and disorienting potential in the world around us that is both narrative and physical. The New York-based artist incorporates familiar domestic objects, often utilizing them as the contained setting for very small-scale interiors. James' work vacillates between the surreal and the familial, the visually impossible and the everyday, and explores a new means of pictorial storytelling.
New York based artist Mark Reigelman studied sculpture and industrial design at the Cleveland Institute of Art in Cleveland, OH and product design at Central St. Martin's College of Art and Design in London, UK. With careful re-examination of concept and utility, Mark's work attempts to erode the boundaries of the two disciplines by redefining the conventional meaning of objects and spaces. His practice is dedicated to questioning the expected uses and qualities of form and material and creating objects that defy the limits of art and design.
