2009 Delta National Small Prints Exhibition at Bradbury
The 2009 Delta National Small Prints Exhibition (DNSPE) will open to the public at  5 p.m. on Thursday, Jan.  22, at ASU's Aaron McLeod's "3 fils,2008" (copper and photo etching) combines the familiar and traditional with the exotic. McLeod's image is part of the Bradbury Gallery's 2009 Delta National Small Prints Exhibition.Bradbury Gallery, in Fowler Center. This beautiful, well-rounded show includes a variety of prints from traditional to experimental, minimal to intricate, and realistic to abstract. Each year artists from across the nation submit original prints for possible inclusion in this exhibition, which is chosen by a nationally known expert in the field of printmaking. The 2009 DNSPE was selected by Siri Engberg, who is a specialist in contemporary prints and a curator at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, Minn. Engberg painstakingly reviewed each print and selected an exhibition that spans the range of print types and styles. She also determined which works would receive awards, including purchase prizes. Two ASU faculty members, Shelley Gipson and John Salvest, both of Art, and one recent Art graduate, Andrea Mary, are included in the exhibition. A full-color catalog of the entire exhibition will be available at the opening reception. The exhibition runs through Sunday, Feb. 22. Bradbury Gallery hours are 12 noon-5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 2-5pm on Sunday. The exhibition, the catalog, and the reception are free, and the public is welcome. For details, contact Les Christensen, director, the Bradbury Gallery, at ext. 2567, or see the NewsPage release.
