David Hornung

Artist and art educator David Hornung is guest-curator of the concurrent show, Small-scale Wonders. Hornung received his BA from the University of Delaware and his MFA from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and also studied at Central Saint Martins in London. He has taught drawing, foundation design, painting, illustration, graphic design, and color theory at Brooklyn College, Pratt Institute, Parsons School of Design, Skidmore College, Indiana University, Rhode Island School of Design, and Adelphi University, where he currently serves as Art Department chair. In addition to a forty-year career as an art educator, Hornung has worked as a comic book illustrator, a textile designer, and an art critic. In the 1980s, he made quilts that integrated the vocabularies of Modernist surface organization and traditional patchwork. Hornung incorporates worldwide textile and folk art practices into his teaching, and has long been a voice in the discussion about the possibilities and limits of the non-traditional or “studio” quilt. This exhibition will showcase recent works on paper—gouache paintings and cyanotype collage—in which Hornung continues to explore a visual language that blends.
