Student prints on display at Sweet Briar

| March 21, 2013

The exhibit includes various prints created through the years by Sweet Briar students.

The third and final exhibition in a series of College-made art, “Sweet Briar Creates III: Student Print Exchanges from the Studio Art Department,” opens Thursday, March 28, in Benedict Gallery.

The show will feature a variety of “print exchange” portfolios created through the years by students in Professor Laura Pharis’ printmaking classes. A different theme unites each class’ prints, which are collected into a single portfolio at the end of the semester. Several of these print portfolios have also made it into the College’s art collection and are now being shown for the first time.

Sweet Briar galleries director, Karol Lawson, says the prints are a great way to wrap up the “Sweet Briar Creates” theme, and a nice complement to the print exhibition “Material, Method, Medium,” which is on view until April 7 in Pannell Gallery.

Benedict Gallery is open from 9 a.m to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday, and for special programs and events as announced. Closed for all College holidays and breaks. For more information, contact Karol Lawson at (434) 381-6248 or klawson@sbc.edu.
