Printmaking and New Media Exhibitions Jan. 31

January 25th, 2007 by Adam

The visual arts season at Plymouth State University kicks off Wednesday, Jan. 31, with the opening of Life, Liberty and Pursuit:SOL’SAX and Dread Scott at the Karl Drerup Art Gallery in the Draper and Maynard Building on Main Street in Plymouth.

This exhibition looks at the contributions of African culture to American culture through the work of SOL’SAX, and the affects of racial systems on members of the African American community portrayed by Dread Scott.

Both established artists, using a wade array of new visual and auditory media, create work addressing issues and ambiguities in the unevenness of the cultural experience of Afro- and Euro-centric populations in America.

The exhibition runs through March 4.

At Lamson Library Jan. 31 – March 16, patrons are invited to Pictorial Illusion:

The Graphic Art of Rachel Gross

. Gross, a Vermont printmaker, uses images of furniture and interior spaces, and details of wallpaper and upholstery patterns to create a surreal, dream-like atmosphere.

Receptions for both exhibitions will be held from 4 – 6 p.m. Jan. 31 at their respective venues.

Other gallery exhibitions second semester include Friends of the Arts annual Regional High School Exhibition opening at Silver Center at 2 p.m. Feb. 4 ; the annual Plymouth State Juried Student Exhibition March 7 – April 7; From the Center: Tom Driscoll, paintings by PSU faculty member Tom Driscoll that explore new ideas, forms and types of space and playfully experiment with surface, light and the relationship between forms contained within the layers of paint; and the 2007 PSU Senior BFA Exhibition, the culminating exhibition for design and studio art majors, April 18 – May 19.
