De Pree Gallery Featuring Contemporary Printmaking

The gallery of the De Pree Art Center at Hope College is featuring work by three artists in “PROOF: An Exhibition of Contemporary Printmaking.”

The exhibition opened on Friday, Jan. 11, and will continue through Thursday, Feb. 7.  There will be artist talks on Thursday, Jan. 31, at 4:30 p.m. and on Thursday, Feb. 7, at 4:30 p.m., and a closing reception on Thursday, Feb. 7, from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The public is invited to the exhibition, artist talks and closing reception.  Admission is free.

Transcending the inherent qualities of line, color and multiple original copies of the printmaker’s craft, Star Varner, Elizabeth Dove and Jeremy Lundquist explore issues of 21st-century art in their printmaking practices.  Digital media, video, installation and photographic process connect with traditional methods of lithography and intaglio in the exhibition.

Elizabeth Dove will present the artist talk on Thursday, Jan. 31, at 4:30 p.m., and Jeremy Lundquist will present the artist talk on Thursday, Feb. 7, at 4:30 p.m.  Both presentations will be in room 128 of the De Pree Art Center.

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.
