The University of North Texas is honored to highlight the artwork of six talented young printmakers:  Jonny Riecke, Jezzalie Gill, Payton Lower, Noelle Hays, Kathleen Clark, and Hannah Taylor. These students’ work will be displayed in the Cora Stafford Gallery March 25-29th,2013. On the eve of March 28th, a great jubilee will sound from the corner of Ponder and Oak as young and old alike bond in print viewership.

The diverse body of work covers a range of subjects and styles. The work appeals to a variety tastes and complement each other due to shared mediums yet different approaches. The works are created using a range of printmaking techniques, lithography, relief, etching, screenprint, and monotype. The artworks explore satire, monster anatomy, spiritual identity, and nonobjective abstraction.

“First This, Then That” is a portfolio exchange including works from both the aforementioned senior BFA students and MFA candidates: Luke Ball, Preston Bradley, Nuray Packard, Adam Rowlett, and Jon Vogt. It exemplifies the work of each artist in relation to the title’s notion of process in creating art itself.
