National Print and Drawing Exhibition Continues at Clemson University, Clemson, SC
The 2000 National Clemson Print and Drawing Exhibition continues in the Rudolph E. Lee Gallery at Clemson University in Clemson, SC, through Mar. 6.
Ecce Homo 2000, the exhibition's theme, focuses on societal changes since the beginning of the last century. The 58 works selected by jurist Hugh Merrill showcases 27 artists from around the country, and reflect the wide range of techniques and diversity found in contemporary printmaking.
"The exhibition expands the work of George Grosz, an artist who after World War I created a suite of prints, Ecce Homo, that revealed an insightful view of contemporary society which foreshadowed the coming to power of Nazis and World War II," explains Merrill in the exhibition prospectus.
Since 1976, Merrill has been a professor of printmaking at the Kansas City Art Institute. His work has been exhibited internationally and collected by the Museum of Modern Art, Harvard and The Cranbrook Museum, to name a few. His articles on the redefining of art, printmaking and education have been published internationally and have had a seminal effect on the dialogue to change the educational processes across the country.
Documenting the exhibition is a catalog featuring each artist. And as the top award, one artist will receive a one-person exhibition in the gallery in 2001.
