ASMSU Arts and Exhibits presents: Sound is Transportation, a collection of prints by hj mooij, an alumnus of MSU. The exhibit will be showing in the Exit Gallery January 19th through January 29th, 2010. There will be a free public artist reception at the Exit Gallery on Thursday, January 21st from 5 to 7 pm.
Hj mooij has been a printmaker for ten years and has practiced a wide variety of printmaking techniques from experimental food to traditional lithography. Nothing has fascinated him more than the process of printing a lithograph, thus he has taken a strong liking to that medium. During the summer of 2009 hj mooij was asked to be a resident artist at the Kala Institute, in Berkeley California. Kala is a large, well-equipped printmaking studio that now occupies the former Heinz 57 building. It doesn’t smell like Ketchup. The work on display is a selection of prints made at Kala, combined with various other prints that have rarely seen viewers.
The Exit Gallery is located in Strand Union Building room 212, Montana State University, Bozeman. Hours are Monday-Friday, 9 am – 5 pm.
