Simply Steve

Simply Steve Oct 7, 2014, 1:00 PM to Nov 7, 2014, 12:00 AM Location: Juergensen Gallery

"Simply Steve" is a group show of Student Faculty and Alumni works that feature long-time model and recent author Steve Mazza. Steve is the senior model for the MVCC drawing program and has modeled for thousands of drawings. This show highlights some of the great poses and works that have been created during his tenure as a model.

Steve will give a lecture about achieving his dream of writing a book on Oct 7 at 1pm in IT 225. His book "It Takes a Naked Man to Tell a Naked Story" is the true story and personal adventures of a man who discovers that decisions made in life can take you down many different paths. From Vietnam Veteran to nude model and everywhere in between, he steps outside the box late in life to find personal fulfillment. He shows that it doesn't matter how young or old you are; it is never too late to trod down a new path and see where it takes you. Humor and entertainment abound in his most unusual choices, from being sketched in the nude, to racing in the nude, to modeling with a woman with abominable, unbearable foot odor. This book will not only make you laugh, it will inspire you to make choices and go down roads you never thought of before.

Alumni and Instructor Heather Ryerson will give a workshop demonstration for students on Tuesday Oct 7 at 230pm in AB 112. Having illustrated Steve's book Heather will show the process of creating finished pieces using photo reference.
