Here & Now Exhibition
January 18- February 23, 2013
Reception: Saturday, February 23, 7:00-9:00 p.m.
*The reception coincides with Westman's solo exhibition.
Join us as we showcase a high caliber of talent in this National Printmaking Exhibition. Here & Now refers to our emotions relating to a place and current time where we are, where we live. Each of us lives a different life, though it may be in the same location. Come see how selected artists envision their "here and now." This exhibition is juried by Barbara Westman. Westman has been a resident of Pennsylvania since 2002 when she moved from Poland. She obtained her dual MFA in Fiber Art and Printmaking at The Academy of Fine Arts in Poznan, Poland. Since her arrival to the US she has been dividing her time between teaching and working on her own art. She evenly enjoys fiber art and printmaking. Westman's interests are in textures and structures, whether natural or man-made. Her observation and interpretation of both is presented in her prints and fiber art works. Currently Barbara Westman is an Assistant Professor of Fiber Art and Printmaking at Slippery Rock University. Over the years she participated in numerous national and international art exhibits.
