“Nexus: Drawing in Printmaking” exhibit open through Thursday

Nexus: Drawing in PrintmakingThe James S. Murray Gallery is featuring the art exhibit, “Nexus: Drawing in Printmaking,” a portfolio invitational curated by Micah Zavacky through Nov. 16. The exhibit is open for viewing Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. The gallery is located on the upper level of Menard Hall.

The invitational portfolio is comprised of 19 artists that view printmaking as an extension of drawing. All prints were completed in 2016.

“A ‘nexus’ is defined as a connection or series of connections that link people, places and/or things,” explains Zavacky, MFA printmaking candidate at Illinois State University. “This portfolio is an intersection of various drawing vocabularies, printmaking processes and subject matter. The artists are innovative, yet are attuned with tradition, thoughtful and committed to the syntax of printmaking.”
