Eastern Art Gallery to Feature ‘A Narrative of Printmaking’

WILLIMANTIC, CT (03/21/2019) Eastern Connecticut State University will showcase an exhibit titled “Between Spaces: A Narrative of Printmaking” from March 23-April 25 in the Art Gallery of the Fine Arts Instructional Center. The opening reception will occur on March 28 from 4-6 p.m. A talk featuring all four artists will precede the reception from 3-3:45 p.m. in the Art Gallery.

The collection is curated by Simonette Quamina, an assistant professor of printmaking at Eastern. Four artists are featured in the exhibition, including Taro Takizawa, David Curcio, Carrie Scanga and Cornelia Mcsheehy. The exhibition focuses on the representation or exploration of space through the medium of printmaking. The show will include contemporary prints as well as 3D works constructed of prints, books, installations and other forms of printmaking that take the print off the wall and into the space of the gallery.

Takizawa is a visual artist who recently graduated from the College of Visual and Performing Arts at Syracuse University. He focuses on printmaking, vinyl installations, painting, drawing and ceramics.

Curcio has a MFA in printmaking from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. He specializes in printmaking, woodcuts, drawing and embroidery. Curcio’s work often features animals or portraits, taking inspiration from the symmetry of nature and the beauty of the human form.

Scanga is a multidisciplinary artist from the University of Washington who focuses on printmaking and installations. She takes inspiration from personal mythologies, ecology, architecture and design. Scanga teaches at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, ME.

McSheehy is a professor of printmaking at the Rhode Island School of Design and her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally in both group and solo exhibitions since 1969. She earned her master’s degree in printmaking from the State University of New York at Albany.

Eastern’s Art Gallery hours are Tuesday and Wednesday 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Thursday 1-7 p.m., Saturday and Sunday 2-5 p.m. All events are free and open to the public. For more information, visit www.easternct.edu/artgallery or call (860) 465-4659.
