  2. Opening Reception at Arts West for Imbricated: A Survey of Work from Three Institutions

    September 6, 2019, 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM @ Arts West

    The Ohio University printmakers have joined together with Kent State and Ohio State Universities to create a body of work surrounding the word 'Dissent.' The title "Imbricated" refers to the discrete but overlapping nature of the experiences of students working from a common regional perspective, but through different academic and personal lenses. The exhibit will include a selection of OU printmakers' personal works, as well as a collaborative exchange portfolio. The show comes together at Arts West in tandem with Althea Murphy-Price's visit to the OU School of Art & Design, and featues a giant print sale. Murphy-Price is an artist & associate professor at the U. of Tennessee at Knoxville. Prestigious in printmaking and the art world at large, her work “contemplates the power of hair as a signifier of cultural self-identity.” Exhibit on display at Arts West Sept 6-26.
