Into the Woods: USD Lecturer Bill Kelly’s art students show their woodcut prints
For more than 1500 years, artists have used the simple medium of woodcuts — which may be created without electricity, a press, or specialized tools — as a direct method of expression for their voice and ideas.
The exhibition Into the Woods affords viewers an opportunity to reflect on what it means — in this age of instant print — to labor by hand to produce a rare print and as artists joining those before them in the practice.
Dovetailing with the superb exhibition Dreams and Diversions: 250 Years of Japanese Woodblock Prints from The San Diego Museum of Art, students at the university explore the physical and deeply felt meaning of this rich printing technique.
Dreams and Diversions: 250 Years of Japanese Woodblock Prints will be on view at the Robert and Karen Hoehn Family Galleries in Founders Hall through Feb. 13 at which time it will close for the spring rotation. Contact Victoria Sancho Lobis, curator of Print Collection at (619) 260-4261 for more information.
Join curators Bill Kelly, lecturer in the Department of Art, Architecture and Art History, and Victoria Sancho Lobis, curator of Print Collection and Fine Art Galleries, for a walkthrough and discussion of Into the Woods and Dreams and Diversions on Feb. 7 at 7:30 p.m. at the Robert and Karen Hoehn Family Galleries in Founders Hall.
