Professor Jim Bailey‘s Advanced Research Class in Printmaking traveled to Gonzaga University to see work being done by visiting artists “Drive By Press”,  students reviewed 100’s of contemporary prints, saw demonstrations and listened to several lectures.  Students also visited the Jundt Art Museum Print Archives, where they viewed original prints by such artists as Chuck Close, Pablo Picasso, along with prints by Glen Alps, Albrect Durer, Kathe Kollwitz and numerous others.  Here are pics from the trip:

A MESSAGE FROM PROFESSOR BONJORNI:

Mary Ann asks any student from her class who showed work in the UC to pick up their work outside her office in the flat file labled “EXHIBIT PICK UP”.  So, you know, do that!

That’s all for now.  Get busy……..make art!
