Local artist's work featured at exhibit A print created by Vermillion artist Mathew J. Egan has been selected to appear in the Parkside National Small Print Exhibition.
The exhibition, which each year attracts works by some of the nation's best printmakers, opened on the University of Wisconsin-Parkside campus Jan. 16 and will continue through Feb. 24.
Egan's piece is titled "Covenant Dance." The technique used to create the work is called lithography. Exhibition Director and UW-Parkside Art Professor Doug DeVinny said the piece is part of an exhibition that is stronger in quality than those of recent years. The Parkside National Small Print Exhibition is in its 13th year of operation.
A total of 116 prints from 99 artists were selected for display. More than 750 pieces were submitted by artists from 47 states. Artists can submit up to three works for consideration. The merits of each piece were determined by independent juror Beauvais Lyons, professor of art at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
To be considered for the exhibition, artwork must be original prints completed in the last two years. In addition, the print or its mat cannot exceed 18 inches in any dimension.
