The opening reception for the Southern Graphics Council’s 2015-18 Traveling Exhibition, a juried showcase of member prints will be held Saturday, January 20, 2018, 2-4 pm at MTSU’s Todd Art Gallery, Todd Hall, room 224A.
Each print was selected for inclusion by noted painter and printmaker Ruth Weisberg, a Professor of Fine Arts at the University of Southern California. In total, 52 works were selected from 51 North American and International artists. While Weisberg’s work focuses on her Jewish heritage and its traditions, the human body, and feminist themes her selections for this exhibit further celebrate the diversity, vibrancy, and broad range of print’s contemporary themes and processes.
