Gallery East opens exhibition

The College of Eastern Utah's Gallery East opens its 2004-2005 exhibition schedule with a printmaking exhibit which runs through Sept. 24. Titled "World Printmaking,"

It is an exhibition of fine art prints that have been collected from around the world as part of several printmaking exchange programs.

"Examples of the four separate methods of printmaking: lithographic, relief, intaglio and stencil are represented," stated Gallery East Director Brent Haddock.

"During the past 10 years, I have been privileged to participate in numerous international print exchanges."

One of the exchange programs originated with PrintAustralia. In this forum, over 100 printmakers from 20 different countries exchanged nearly 250 editions of prints. Exchanges allow the artist an opportunity to produce a small edition of prints (usually 30-40) and exchange them with 30-40 other artists from locations around the world.

All of the prints in the gallery have been acquired through the exchange process and belong to the private collection of Carroll Haddock.

The collection was recently exhibited in the new Blanding Arts and Events Center at the CEU's San Juan Campus. Prints are considered to be multiple originals and not copies or reproductions. The artist has made each print by hand, adding to its originality.

Lithography is a process of printing from a small stone or metal plate on which the image to be printed is ink-receptive and the blank area is ink-repellant. The artist, or other printmaker under the artist's supervision, then covers the plate with a sheet of paper and runs both through a press under light pressure.

Relief prints are made on a block of plank grain wood that is cut into with a knife and various gouges, chisels, etc., wherein the image to be printed stands in relief above the rest of the block. A wood engraving uses the end-grain wood cut into with burins, gravers, tint tools, etc., the image to be printed stands in relief above the rest of the block.

Intaglio is a method of printing in which the image is carved into a flat surface, usually copper, so that the areas to be inked are recessed beneath the surface of the printing plate. Serigraphy is a method of producing original, multicolored prints having a real paint quality. Paint, ink, or other color is forced through a stencil of silk each time for each color required in the print. Gallery East is located in the old SAC, just east of the college library. Patrons must enter the gallery through the west entrance. Regular gallery hours are 8:30 a.m. through 5 p.m., Monday-Friday.
