Josephy Center for Arts and Culture presents an exhibit of prints curated by Christy Wyckoff. The show features Oregon artists, who are part of Wyckoff’s artistic communities. Wyckoff grew up in Eastern Oregon and taught printmaking at Pacific NW College of Art in Portland for over 30 years.
Exhibit opens on Saturday, April 1 at 7 PM with an opening reception with fun hands-on printmaking lessons with multiple types of prints for all to try. Also a big closing party reception on May 26 at 7 PM and Christy will present a slide show presentation about his career as an artist and as a collector as part of our artist lecture series, “Live and Up Front” at 8 p.m. as part of the reception. Both events are free but donations are welcome. Printmaking fun will have pricing that will be determined.
Wyckoff’s work in printmaking, painting and photography is focused on an intersection between abstraction and representation. His work has appeared in museum exhibitions including The Plates: International Contemporary Print Art at the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music; One of a Kind: Monotypes from the Permanent Collection at the Portland Art Museum; Waters Edge: Landscapes by Contemporary Northwest Artists at the Maryhill Museum of Art; What’s Happening: Contemporary Art from California, Oregon and Washington at the Alternative Museum, NYC; and In Touch: Nature, Ritual and Sensuous Art from the Northwest at the Portland Center for Visual Arts.
