GALLERY EXHIBIT OPEN
"Press the Flesh," an exhibition featuring a survey of artwork by artists and contemporary print studios around the country, opens Saturday, June 28, at the Old Dominion University Gallery with a reception at 7 p.m.
The reception and exhibition, which continues through Aug. 10, are free and open to the public.
The exhibition will feature:
Vue Dieu - A print portfolio by 25 artists from the 2002 Southern Graphics Council Conference, New Orleans; organized and curated by ODU faculty members Ken Daley and Clay McGlamory.
Yee-Haw Industries - A selection of prints from this independent print shop in Knoxville, Tenn. Yee-Haw Industries specializes in original art-like products - from letterpress posters promoting special events, music acts and theater shows to handmade, woodcut fine art prints. The work is custom-to-order, designed, set and pressed by hand. More information is available on the Web site www.yeehawindustries.com/new/home.html.
Kevin Quandt Fine Art - An independent printmaking representative in Minneapolis, featuring work by Adrienne Armstrong, Teresa Mucha and Jenny Schmid. More information is available on the Web site www.kqfineart.com.
Cannonball Press - Working in Brooklyn, N.Y., the Cannonball Press has been described as "a down-home dish that will put meat on your bones and mess with your face. Artists work together with a one-eyed master-printer to produce prints that are mysterious, funny or twisted. Throw Fine Art in trash." More information is available on the Web site www.cannonballpress.com.
The exhibition will also feature the latest work by ODU alumni Sean Star Wars and Dennis McNett.
The University Gallery, 350 W. 21st St., Norfolk, is open noon to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday; noon to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday; and 1-4 p.m. Sunday. For more information visit www.odu.edu/al/art/exhibitions.html or call 683-2355.
