UT graduate printmakers come off the wall
Graduate students at the University of Tennessee have organized Through and Through, an exhibition of installation art that utilizes print media in a variety of different ways. The exhibition opens at the West Jackson Workshops (514 West Jackson Avenue), on Friday December 6th from 69pm. The exhibition will continue Saturday from 12 to 5pm.
Through and Through presents the work of seven graduate student in the Master of Fine Arts studio art program at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Historically printmaking has existed as a two-dimensional medium, however in recent years print artists have increasingly chosen to utilize the printed multiple as material for creating three dimensional installation based works that are not restricted to the wall and work to alter the gallery environment.
The printmaking program at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville is ranked #3 nationally by US News and World Report. The program is populated by students from all over the country as well as students from Canada and Slovakia. For more information, contact Professor Althea Murphy-Price at 865.974.3247.
