Artist Alfred J. Quiroz will speak about his work at the Corvallis Art Center from from noon to 1 p.m. Friday, Oct. 10.

A painter and mixed-media artist from Arizona, Quiroz’s narrative paintings have been exhibited both nationally and internationally.

In 1988, Quiroz received the Arizona Artist Award from the Tucson Community Foundation. He also received Visual Arts Fellowships from the Arizona Commission on the Arts in 1989 and 1994, and from the Tucson-Pima Arts Council in 1996 and 2000.

Quiroz’s work is on display in the Tucson Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts in Santa Fe, and the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art.

An art professor with the University of Arizona, Quiroz earned a fine art degree from the San Francisco Art Institute, a master of fine arts at the Rhode Island School of Design, and a master of fine arts in painting at the University of Arizona.
