Printmaker Richard Black will display work at Wayne State College from Feb. 16 to March 16 at Nordstrand Visual Arts Gallery in Conn Library on campus, with the opening reception from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Feb. 16.
"Black is a highly regarded printmaker who has made a significant contribution over the years to the arts in Iowa as well as to printmaking on a much wider geographic range,'' according to Orson-Larson Galleries in Des Moines.
For more than 30 years, Black was a professor of art at Drake University where he founded the Drake University Biennial Print Symposium. The symposium brought nationally known artists to the state to demonstrate and lecture on the art of printmaking.
Black has been the subject of a one-person exhibition at the Des Moines Art Center and has been honored with the Drake Award for Excellence in Teaching and Artistic Achievement. Black's works are included in museum collections and have been shown in exhibitions all over the country. Black creates prints that have a collage look. Black's works are often inspired from The Old Testament.
