Kleinprints on display through March at University Art Galleries
The exhibit, which features engravings, mezzotints and stone lithographs made by contemporary printmakers living in Czechoslovakia, Ukraine, Russia and former East Germany, will be on display through March 26. According to the owner of Kleinprints, Henry Klein, cities in Eastern Europe, have had a long and distinguished tradition in the graphic arts dating back to the 15th century when the first book was printed in Bohemia. Many of the prints in this exhibition include homages to Renaissance artists Albrecht Durer and Jan Van Eyck but also include themes that reflect the socio-political histories of the Eastern European countries over the last 30 years. Since 1987, Klein has curated exhibitions, wrote articles and catalogs, and lectured about contemporary central and Eastern European art. Kleinprints is located in Los Angeles.
A reception for Klein and the exhibition is scheduled from 5 to 7:30 p.m. on Friday, March 23. It is free and open to the public. There will also be a reception for the exhibition, “Imagined Realities," on March 23 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. for ceramicist Travis Hinton in Gallery 110. In this exhibition, Hinton presents his work that is a reaction to pop culture entertainment’s creation of altered realities. Hinton received his B.F.A. in ceramics and art education from the University of South Dakota and also received his M.F.A. in ceramics from the University of Kansas. He is currently a ceramic artist and art educator in Sioux Falls, S.D.
