Exhibition to Feature “The Printed Image”

The gallery of De Pree Art Center at HopeCollege is featuring the exhibition "The Printed Image" through Friday, March 13.

There will be a reception on Friday, March 6, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The public is invited to both the exhibition and the reception.  Admission is free.

The exhibition highlights several etchings and engravings collected by Dr. Richard Wunder and generously made available to Hope by Dr. Maurice Kawashima, two dedicated friends of HopeCollege.  The exhibition was curated and the prints were researched by participating students in the advanced art history seminar conducted in the fall semester 2008 under the direction of Dr. Anne Heath, assistant professor of art history.

On Friday, March 6, from 9 a.m. to 1p.m. the students will present the results of their research at an exhibition symposium at the De Pree Art Center.  The symposium will also include keynote addresses by Dr. Timothy Smith of Birmingham Southern College and Dr. Hope Saska of the Detroit Institute of Art.

The De Pree Art Center is located at 160 E. 12th St., on Columbia Avenue at 12th Street. The regular gallery hours are Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.; and Sundays from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. Gallery hours may be reduced during breaks and holidays. The gallery is handicapped accessible.
