Matthew Lopas has been painting interiors lit by warm light for more than twenty years. For him interiors without figures suggest the people that inhabit the space – the presence of an absence. His paintings represent everything that can be seen from a single point in space. They are called “global panoramas”. Lopas paints in beautiful older houses that have a sense of memory, loss, and rebirth.

His work can be seen at www.matthewlopas.com.

An interview with him can be read at http://paintingperceptions.com/interiors/painting-panoramas-interview-with-matthew-lopas.

Matthew Lopas was born in 1965 in Chicago. Lopas has shown in New York, California, Chicago, Connecticut, Atlanta, Cardiff, and Little Rock. His most recent solo show was at the Narthex Galley in NYC and he is represented by Ober Gallery in Kent, CT. He has a B.A. from the University of Michigan, a B.F.A. from the School of the At Institute in Chicago, and an M.F.A. from Yale. Lopas resides in Conway, and is a Professor of Art at Hendrix College. He is married to Susan Clark and has three children.

Mace Perlman is a classically- trained mime and actor, who studied and performed under Marcel Marceau in Paris (1982-84), and later under Giorgio Strehler at his Piccolo Teatro in Milan (1987-93), where he acted in Goldoni’s Arlecchino, Servant of Two Masters and Goethe’s Faust. The recipient of Stanford University’s Robert M. Golden Award for combining excellence in performance with scholarship (where he also received a B.A. and M.A. in Humanities), Mace specializes in the relation between the practice of commedia dell’arte and the playing of the great texts of the English, French, and Italian repertoire. Mace has translated, directed, and acted in the works of Shakespeare, Molière, Marivaux, and Goldoni, among others; and he has taught masterclasses in acting using the commedia masks of Renzo Antonello in more than twenty-five American conservatories and universities, as well as in Germany and Italy. His writings include “Reading and Interpreting the Capitano’s Multiple Mask-Shapes” and “Giorgio Strehler’s Arte: A Commedia Master Directs Shakespeare” in The Routledge Companion to Commedia dell’Arte, Judith Chaffee and Olly Crick, ed. (Routledge, 2015), and “Reading Shakespeare, Reading the Masks of the Italian Commedia: Fixed Forms and the Breath of Life” in Transnational Exchange in Early Modern Theater, Robert Henke and Eric Nicholson, ed. (Ashgate Publishing, 2008). He is currently working to create an Academy of Renaissance Theatre – a professional company of players together with a school of theatre, language, and Renaissance culture.

Joyce Hardin grew up gardening in a small, rural community in central Arkansas. She earned a BS in Biology from the University of Charleston in Biology, and both an MS and PhD in Crop Physiology from the University of Arkansas. She has taught various courses in biology and botany at the University of Oklahoma, the University of Central Oklahoma, and Hendrix College. She provides botanical training to Master Gardeners at both the local and state level.

Joyce Hardin is also an active member of the Environmental Studies Faculty at Hendrix College. While teaching environmental studies courses, interacting with other faculty, and traveling, her interests broadened into the examination of gardens and food from a cultural perspective. She taught a class on the “Socio-Cultural History of English Gardens” and frequently lecturers on various aspects of English garden history and design. She developed an interest in Italian gardening, particularly the Italian Renaissance garden, initially because of its influence on English gardens. Joyce’s interest in food as culture has developed as a result of travel to various regions with iconic cuisines and countless conversations with students and faculty. She is eager to explore the garden and food treasures of Tuscany with students.
