Artist Tiit Raid to Present Lecture at Fall Geography Seminar

RELEASED: Oct. 7, 2005

EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Fall 2005 Geography Seminar Series will present Tiit Raid, professor emeritus of art, in a lecture presentation titled "Observation in Art and the Everyday," at 3 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14, in Room 281 of Phillips Science Hall on the UW-Eau Claire campus.

Raid will explore the connections and parallels between observation in art and observation in geography. He will bring in several original pieces — both completed and in progress — to use in his presentation, and he will discuss the importance of observation in his painting, in art more generally, and to the viewer; he will also examine how such skills help connect us to our surroundings. Raid will stress the importance of intuition in regard to work, invention and life. As novelist Joseph Conrad said in response to how he selected what and how to write, "The inward voice decides."

The seminar is open to the public; light refreshments will be served. For more information please contact Paul Kaldjian, assistant professor in the department of geography and anthropology, at kaldjian@uwec.edu.
