John Foster will present a gallery talk/lecture on the history of rock posters, discussing several works in the exhibition, past and contemporary styles, and sources of inspiration. The lecture is free and open to the public.
The Art Gallery will be closed the week of March 17-22, in observance of the University of Maryland spring break closing.
The Art Gallery is excited to present an exhibition that showcases the cutting edge experimentation taking place in silk-screened rock posters right now. Sweet: The Graphic Beauty of the Contemporary Rock Poster features twenty-eight of the leading artists/groups of silk-screened contemporary rock posters, on view Wednesday, February 6 through Saturday, March 29, 2008. Artist Jesse LeDoux creates a site-specific installation, Masters of Balance, in the back gallery that displays the versatility of the screen printing technique, and artist Tim Gough creates unique signage for the exhibition utilizing silk-screening and other media applied directly to the walls.
