Bio / Résumé
Dan R. Talley is a professor in the Fine Arts Department at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania where he teaches photography and professional practices. He has been involved in the arts since 1970, working as gallery director, an arts writer, and artist. Talley co-founded several arts organizations including Art Papers Magazine (Atlanta, GA), and Real Art Ways (Hartford, CT). Early in his career, Talley’s artwork—including photography, videos, drawings, and installations that incorporated audio and photographic projections—was exhibited at various galleries, museums, and alternative venues. His writings have appeared in a variety of publications including Sculpture Magazine, New Art Examiner, Ceramics Monthly, and Art Papers Magazine. For much of his career, gallery administration has been a primary focus, but since stepping down as director of Kutztown University’s gallery in 2010, he is producing new artwork, much of it realized as photo-based pieces that continue his long-standing interest in Conceptualism and Minimalism.
