MATRIX Press: Master Prints @ The Emerson

The Emerson in Bozeman, Montana invites the community to view two contemporary printmaking exhibits on display this winter from January 10 – February 28. MATRIX Press: Master Prints will be on display in the Jessie Wilber Gallery and Bozeman Printmaking 2011 in the Emerson Lobby. Meet the artists at an opening reception Friday, February 11th, 5- 8 pm and hear printmakers speak about their work at 5:30 pm and 6 pm.

The Lobby exhibit will feature prints created by MSU faculty, faculty emeritus, graduates of the printmaking program, and local printmakers including Kerry Corcoran, Catherine Courtenaye, Gesine Janzen, HJ Mooij, Fran Noel, Robert Royhl, Harold Schlotzhauer, and Jay Schmidt.

Matrix Press: Master Prints showcases nearly forty prints created through MATRIX Press, by nationally recognized artists over the course of the past twelve years. The prints from the MATRIX Press collection represent a broad range of artistic and technical approaches to the print. MATRIX Press was founded in 1998 by Professor of Art, James Bailey, at The University of Montana-Missoula, to educate, develop and promote printmaking and fine art prints. The show was curated by The University of Montana’s Gallery of Visual Arts in conjunction with University of Montana Professor James Bailey.

Artists represented in this exhibition include those who have continued the activist tradition of printmaking such as Richard Mock-best known for his cutting political prints that appeared in the New York Times Op-Ed section from 1980-1996-and Miriam Schapiro who was one of the pioneering artists in the Feminist Art movement to Tom Huck, known for his intricately cut woodcuts inspired by the likes of Albrecht Durer. In addition, colorful abstractions by Arizona artist and past UM alumni John Armstrong show a softer approach to the medium with his whimsical forms, which often reference the landscape. Chicago based artist Tony Fitzpatrick utilizes 50s style tattoo art in his color etchings, while Canadian Artist Peter Von Tiesenhausen‘s boat forms float mysteriously on metallic fields.

The exhibition contains thirty limited edition digital construction prints which incorporate a variety of mixed media materials and print surfaces. The prints were created by importing an original line drawing on a computer, which was then manipulated and painted using program tools and a digital drawing tablet. Printing surfaces include paper, wood, aluminum and bamboo mat.

Harold Schlotzhauer has been a professor of painting and printmaking at Montana State University for 27 years, and his work has been exhibited extensively throughout the United States, Germany, Canada, China and Japan.

The Helen E. Copeland Gallery is located on the second floor of Haynes Hall on the MSU campus. All exhibitions and receptions are free and open to the public. For more information, call Erin W. Anderson at 994-2562.
