Release Date July 13
The Brookhaven College Art Department galleries will feature print media and book art by an internationally recognized artist, and works in wood by a faculty member, in two new exhibits.
Canadian artist Sean Caulfield, along with his collaborator, writer Jonathan Hart, will show “Darkfire” and “The Waiting Room” in the Forum Gallery, Bldg. F, Room F101, through July 29.
Also on display is “Faculty Projects 26: Erik Tosten” through Aug. 26 in the Studio Gallery, Bldg. D, Room D127. Tosten, a Brookhaven College ceramics professor, exhibits his wood works. A reception for Tosten will be from 6-8 p.m. on Aug. 12 in the Studio Gallery.
Caulfield uses mezzotint and other intaglio techniques with chine-collé to create visually rich surfaces, contrasting with the menacing visual metaphors 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.
