A visiting artist with the University of Toledo Department of Art, Nancy Mitchnick’s paintings are emotional, strong, and sometimes humorous. An innovative teacher and a recipient of multiple awards and fellowships, Mitchnick says that her “new paintings depict disintegrating houses, and small industrial buildings, that stand as monuments to their former communities. Though politically relevant, this body of work (“Detroit: dismantling cities in Middle America”) is a love-poem to abandoned neighborhoods.” This artist lecture is presented by the University of Toledo School of Visual and Performing Arts and is hosted by the Toledo Museum of Art.

“Along the beaches near the capital of Muscat, migrant workers from adjacent worksites usually gather together to combat the boredom of routine work and social isolation. Subsequently, they tend to form intimate relationships with one another to deal with the harsh realities of migrant life. I spent a year in Oman walking along these same beaches unexpectedly forming a close bond with many of them.” - Ryan Debolski

Ryan Debolski studied photography at Cranbrook Academy of Art. He received a Fulbright Fellowship in 2014 to the Sultanate of Oman. His work has been exhibited in North America, Europe, and Asia.
