  • You can easily spot The Little Friends of Printmaking in a crowd—their inky hands and clothes are a dead giveaway. Their work is just as distinctive. JW & Melissa Buchanan first made a name for themselves through their silkscreened concert posters, but soon branched out into further fields, designing fancy junk for whoever would pay them money. In addition to their work as illustrators and designers, they've continued their fine art pursuits through exhibitions, lectures, and artists’ residencies, spreading the gospel of silkscreen to anyone inclined to listen.

“Dark Forest”
January 22 to February 1, 2017

Todd Bradford Richmond makes paintings, installations, films and music compositions. His practice encompasses an ongoing conversation across mediums and employs diverse materials and modes, exchanging language and concepts between genres. His practice draws upon nature, form, composition and the kinetic that is informed by his lifelong interests in painting, music, dance, film, architecture, agriculture and the environment.

Graduate Fine Arts Lecture: Gracie DeVito

Gracie DeVito’s work challenges codified modes of art making and production; the output of the work shifts fluidly from painting, to sculpture, to found objects, to performance. Characters and motifs, manifested by DeVito herself or by the characters she creates, rotate through the 2D and 3D spaces of her pieces.
