PRINTSMITHING Exhibition at Cora Stafford Gallery


PRINTSMITHING 
(BFA Senior Printmaking/Metals Exhibition)
November 14-17, 2018

Reception:Thursday, Nov. 15th, 5-7pm 

The Cora Stafford Gallery
University of North Texas College of Visual Arts and Design
1120 W Oak St, Denton, TX 76201
Gallery Hours:Wednesday-Saturday, 1 - 5 PM

The University of NorthTexas Printmaking Area is pleased toannounce Printsmithing, an exhibition of prints by six printmaking BFA seniors. PRINTSMITHING will be on view from Wednesday, November 14th throughSaturday, November17th.

PRINTSMITHING centers around a collaboration between senior level students in both the Printmaking and Metal smithing BFA programs at the University of North Texas. In this collaboration, the students created etched copper plates and exchanged them in collaborative partnerships that married both disciplines. Each artist then incorporated the plate received in the exchange into the creation of a new artwork altogether. This collaboration examines the relationship between the two disciplines and highlights the ways in which they are complimentary of each other.

The printmakers exhibiting in PRINTSMITHING explore a variety of themes through equally varied approaches and methods. Maria Aleisa’setchings address themes of family and belonging through the lens of Saudi culture and symbolism. Erika Alonzoexplores family and heritage in landscape by appropriating photographs and manipulating them using relief and etching. Joseph Bercen’setchings use abstracted symbolism to address relations between the individual with society, others, and the self. In her relief woodcuts, Halee Hammuses the relationship between human and animal existence to address the morality of organ donation.Wiley Reid’setchings and lithographs consider the endeavors of modern science as a vehicle for a discussion of the archetypal tendencies of civilizations, pulling from both history and myth. Sydney Wilson’srelief prints use pattern and texture to explore commonalities between humanity and the rest of the natural world.

The metalsmiths exhibiting in PRINTSMITHING represent a diverse range of content manifested through a spectrum of techniques and materials. David Enright bases his wearable sculptures on a fictitious society of his own invention while quoting from historic traditions of protective armament. Vince Fisher creates functional housewares, like letter openers and backscratchers, inspired by medieval weaponry for both aesthetic and conceptual reasons. Inspired by the anatomy and movement of animals, Christa Grogan uses miniature sculpting techniques to make playful and humorous jewelry and sculptures. Zach Morris combines hard edge geometric jewelry designs in silver with rich and varied patinas that create a tension between order and chaos. With fine attention to detail, Kelly Perez explores the politics of food through both wearables and miniature tableaus. JJ Thomson’s series of wearables uses a range of digital and hand fabrication techniques to explore issues based on learning differences.

Prints due in Los Angeles for compiling into mosaic: Feb. 8th, 2019

SGCI Exhibition at Union Gallery, UNT, Denton, TX: March 1-15, 2019

SGCI Opening reception: 1-3PM at Union Gallery , March 8th, 2019

Exhibition Summary:
This is a collaborative exhibition that asks artists to respond to the complicated and layered themes around “Migration” as part of a unique visual exploration.

As a natural process migration brings to mind compelling images of caribou herds, butterfly swarms and flocks of birds. An annual ritual following the seasons that sustains these populations and supports others, connecting flora and fauna. There are also migrations that occur as reactions to disasters, from crisis, fear, hunger, political upheaval or war, with whole populations suddenly becoming refugees, endangered, homeless, and immigrant. The impact of change and transition on the environment, on culture, language and on history, is an eternal process that begins with the process of migration.

Each participating artist is asked to create a 15” right-angle triangular print. These triangles will be pieced together, regardless of orientation, to create one large mosaic print.
It is hoped this collaboration will explore this innovative creative participation as well as present visually the conceptual migration of themes and ideas, interactions and interpretations, as the individual becomes part of the whole.

Free Goya Lecture at the Kimbell Art Museum:
"Cut, Bitten, and Scratched: The Persistent Art of Printmaking"
Thomas E. Rassieur, John E. Andrus III Curator of Prints and Drawings, The Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Minneapolis
Friday, November 2, 2018 -
6:00 PMto 7:00 PM


Like many of his predecessors, Goya exploited printmaking’s unusual quality of being public and private at the same time—optimal for testing novel and sometimes dangerous ideas. Like the best of his forebears, Goya reveled in the physicality of printmaking, attacking copper and stone with sharp tools and acid and caressing them with brushes and soft crayons. In this talk, Tom Rassieur explores printmaking through the work of Albrecht Dürer, Rembrandt, Picasso, Jasper Johns, and,of course, Goya.
