Midwest Matrix: Texas
January 30, 2016 - February 25, 2016
The Sarofim School of Fine Arts’ Art and Art History Department is pleased to present an exhibit as part of Print Austin. The reception will be Saturday, January 30 from 5-7pm.
Normal Gallery Hours: Monday - Sunday, 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The gallery is closed on all school holidays.
This exhibition of contemporary prints by over 20 artists celebrates the individual artist-professors who contributed significantly to the now-celebrated post-WWII printmaking revival in America, and their students who have spread the rigorous Midwest print traditions throughout the United States. The exhibition also includes the work of Texas artist/professors who studied in the major Midwest graduate programs and are developing print programs in universities and colleges throughout Texas.
