Enjoy the talent of a fellow faculty member in one of two new exhibits in the School of the Arts galleries.
Erik Tosten, Brookhaven College ceramics professor, is showing “Faculty Projects 26: Erik Tosten,” a collection of his new works in wood, through Aug. 26 in the Studio Gallery, Bldg. D, Room D127. A reception for Tosten will be from 6-8 p.m. on Aug. 12 in the Studio Gallery.
Also on display are print media and book art by internationally recognized Canadian artist Sean Caulfield, in collaboration with writer Jonathan Hart. “Darkfire” and “The Waiting Room” is showing through July 29 in the Forum Gallery, Bldg. F, Room F101.
Caulfield uses mezzotint and other intaglio techniques with chine-collé to create rich visuals, which contrast with the menacing visuals depicted in the prints. Caulfield and Hart are inspired by Dante’s “Divine Comedy.”
Caulifield is a printmaking professor at the University of Alberta’s Department of Art and Design. His exhibitions are displayed around the world, including the U.S., Canada, Europe and Japan, and are represented in the collections of Houghton Library; Harvard University; Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, UK; and Blanton Museum of Art at the University of Texas at Austin.
Hart is a professor at the University of Alberta and has been a visiting professor at Harvard, Toronto, Cambridge and Princeton universities as well as the Sorbonne Nouvelle. His writing portfolio includes “Empires and Colonies,” “Shakespeare: Poetry, History and Culture,” “Literature, Theory, History” “Dreamwork” and “Musing.”
The Studio and Forum galleries are open Monday-Friday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. For more information, contact David Newman, gallery director, at Ext. 4101 or at dNewman@dcccd.edu.
