West Windsor, N.J. -- Norwegian-born artist Hanneline Røgeberg will present a talk entitled "Categorical Impatience: The Work of Hanneline Røgeberg" on Tuesday, Oct. 13 at 12 noon. This slide show lecture focuses on the possibilities and limitations of figuration in her work. It is presented free and open to the public as part of the college's Distinguished Lecture Series and will take place on the West Windsor campus in the Communications Building, Room 109, 1200 Old Trenton Road.

Working mostly in the medium of painting, Røgeberg explores both visual and tactile qualities as a profound and meaningful form of communication. She has exhibited nationally and internationally with one-person shows at the Contemporary Art Center, Cincinnati; the Vancouver Art Museum; and Henie-Onstad Kunst Senter in Oslo, Norway. Her work has also been included in group shows at such places at MIT's List Visual Arts Center, the Whitney Museum, the Aldrich Museum and the National Academy of Arts and Letters.
