CEDAR FALLS, Iowa ï¾– Two print exhibitions, 'Propinquity' and 'Demographics,' will be presented by the University of Northern Iowa Gallery of Art, from Monday, Feb. 17, through Monday, March 10. The opening reception for both exhibitions will be at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 18, following a 6:30 p.m. lecture in the Kamerick Art Building Auditorium, Room 111, by printmaker Beth Grabowski.
Grabowski, whose works are featured in 'Propinquity,' is professor of art and associate chair for studio art at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her lecture is supported by the Martha Ellen Tye Visiting Artist/Scholar Series. Grabowski says her art 'explores the concepts of communication and interpretation in the complex and exasperating realm of human interaction.'
'Demographics' is the collaborative work of eight different printmakers, including Tim Dooley, UNI assistant professor of art, created during the spring of 2002 at the Southern Graphics Council Conference in Louisiana.
The exhibitions, lecture and reception are free and open to the public.
Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Thursday; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday; and, noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The UNI Gallery of Art is located at the corner of Hudson Road and West 27th Street, on the main floor of the Kamerick Art Building.
