Published on January 16, 2013
Susquehanna University will host a group printmaking exhibition in the Lore Degenstein Gallery from Jan. 26 through March 1, with a free, public opening reception Jan. 26 from 7 to 9 p.m. The exhibition, “Under Pressure,” will feature recent contemporary works by current members of the Society of American Graphic Artists (SAGA).
A variety of artists, including Deborah Mae Broad, James Ehlers, John Hancock, Richie Lasansky, Ryan O’Malley, Dennis McNett, Jillian Sokso and Shelley Thorstensen, will display their work.
SAGA is a nonprofit, national organization of fine art printmakers, originating in New York City in 1915 as the Brooklyn Society of Etchers. The society has been sponsoring national exhibitions since 1922 and has long reflected the growth and changes taking place in modern printmaking.
The Lore Degenstein Gallery exhibits, interprets, collects and preserves objects of art and material culture that support academic investigations and contribute to the cultural life of central Pennsylvania. While adhering to professional standards of museum ethics, the gallery preserves and displays art from both the university's permanent collection and loans from other institutions and private collections.
The gallery is open daily from noon to 4 p.m. For more information, call 570-372-4059 or go to www.susqu.edu/art_gallery.
