Starting February 16, 2015, Salem College will feature the works of two renowned artists.
George Lockwood’s series, “The Process of the Print,” shows the process of developing a hand-pulled print, from concept to completion. Lockwood’s work obtains its merit from the aesthetic value and technical skill reflected in his work during his short life (1929-1969). “The Process of the Print” will feature some of Lockwood’s original wood blocks, painted sketches, printed proofs, and various matrixes.
Jade Ramey’s collection, “Color Free,” represents the challenges Ramey has faced as a colorblind artist. Instead of struggling with shading between light and dark shading, he uses color itself for his shading process, and much of his work is inspired by a pop-art style reminiscent of Andy Warhol. “Many artists are bound by color,” says Ramey. “…I am not bound by the chains of color. I am color free.” The artwork will be on display from February 16 through March 20, and the reception will be held on February 20, 2015 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Elberson Fine Arts Center.
