By now you probably have heard of WPG’s own special visiting exhibition, Ex Libris, coming to the gallery in June. We hope that everyone in the area will be able to join us for this exciting opportunity. We have two other exhibition announcements we want to share as well:
Multiplicity-this is the exhibition curated by our Excellence in Printmaking juror, Joann Moser. It closed last Sunday at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and WPG Director Annie Newman was fortunate enough to squeak in a visit. It’s a lot of work, and some people might even say it’s an overload. But, being part of a print gallery, Annie found it enjoyable. She particularly liked R. Luke Dubois’ prints from the “Hindsight is 20/20” portfolio, which takes the most common words from each President’s State of the Union addresses and forms them into a vision chart. It makes for an interesting comment on each era’s concerns and hot topics. You have to wait a little while to see this exhibition again, but if you’re anywhere near Little Rock, Arkansas from September 20, 2012–January 6, 2013 we suggest checking it out at the Arkansas Art Center.
Field of Vision-Remember Martha Oatway’s exhibition with Tracy Hill that was here last December? It’s now at the Harris Museum and Art Gallery in Preston, UK. If you’re in the area, you can check it out until April 14. Can’t make it to Preston? We also have some prints by Martha at WPG that are part of editions made for that exhibition. You can also read more about it in our current newsletter.
