Lore Degenstein Gallery Opens Season with “60 x 60”

August 30, 2007

SELINSGROVE, (Pa.) – Susquehanna University’s Lore Degenstein Gallery will open its fall season with the print exhibition, "60 x 60: Small Prints From Purdue University Galleries.” on Thursday, September 6.  An opening reception will be held in the gallery from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. that day. The exhibition will be on display through Sunday, October 21. All gallery exhibitions are free and open to the public.

For the past 28 years, the Purdue University Galleries have presented a national biennial competition of small-scale contemporary printmaking called “Sixty Square Inches.” The traveling exhibition, “60 x 60,” consists of 60 prints acquired from previous Sixty Square Inches competitions. The prints were made using a variety of printmaking techniques, with each image measuring less than 60 square inches in size.

Accompanying the exhibition will be a display of various printmaking media to illustrate the methods used by contemporary printmakers. There will also be a PowerPoint presentation on the history and development of printmaking, as well supplies for hands-on relief printing demonstrations. “60 x 60” was developed by the Purdue University Galleries, West Lafayette, Ind.

The Lore Degenstein Gallery brings art exhibitions to the members of Susquehanna University and its surrounding communities through continued support from the Charles B. Degenstein endowment. The gallery, which is wheelchair accessible, is open from noon to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, and from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. It is closed on university recesses.
