Clemson University in Clemson, SC, Offers National Print & Drawing Show

Clemson University in Clemson, SC, is presenting, 2011 Clemson National Print & Drawing Exhibition: Place, on view in the Lee Gallery through Apr. 7, 2011.

Juried by Lynn Allen, Director of the School of Visual Arts at Boston University, this exhibition explores issues surrounding the idea of “place” and what it means in political, geographical, virtual, emotional and physical contexts.

According to Allen, the exhibition is, “an opportunity to see the range, depth, and diversity of some of the most productive print and drawing artists in the country.” The exhibit includes screen prints, ink and charcoal drawings, collages, wood cuts, intaglio solar etchings, and aquatints in which the artists explore the unifying theme of “place” in all of its contexts.

“‘Place’ means something different to just about everyone,” says Allen. “The exhibition is a perfect example of how each artist approached the theme from a different angle, clustering our commonalities while at the same time reinforcing our uniqueness.”

Allen’s work has been selected for over 100 exhibitions in the United States, including the Brooklyn Museum of Art Digital Now Print National, the Whitney Museum of American Art New Editions, the Boston Printmakers, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Portland Art Museum, Honolulu Academy of Arts, among others. International exhibitions include the 21st Ljubljana Print Biennial, the International Print Triennial, Tallinn, Estonia, where she won a diploma award. Allen’s work is featured in Print Now published by the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
