Prints Take Over Kutztown!
The following is a guest post by Alicia Bonilla-Puig, a hard-working first year graduate student in the Masters in Art History program at Temple University.
On Thursday, September 6th, Kutztown University in Kutztown, PA held its first Art Walk, coordinating the openings of several exhibitions both at the school and along Main Street. And the best part about KU’s first Thursday Art festivities? All of these shows featured prints!
From prints by Oaxacan street artists at the university’s Rohrbach Library (top image), to the release party for Carrier Pigeon’s latest issue at Eckhaus Gallery, and on to the 2012 Print Invitational curated by professor Evan Summer at the Marlin and Regina Miller Gallery, attendees had the opportunity to view a wildly diverse selection of works by an equally renowned group of artists.
If you missed the grand opening night, follow the jump for some more great pictures of the art and artists. And if you are nearby, make sure to head out to Kutztown to see these print shows before they close on October 5th!
Furthermore, several gallery spaces dedicated their walls to exhibiting prints by emerging talent, including current and former students’ work at the McFarland Student Union Building’s Art Gallery, The Independent Space, Sharadin’s Student Gallery, and more. Judging by the photographs taken at the various events, the print-infested Art Walk was a great success.Bookmark / Share / Print
