'Catching Light' exhibit features solarplate prints

By Scott Sherer
Associate Professor of Art and Art History

(Oct. 22, 2008)--The UTSA Department of Art and Art History will present the exhibit, "Catching Light," from Oct. 22 to Nov. 26 in the Arts Building Gallery on the 1604 Campus. The works in the exhibit use paper, metals and ceramics in solarplate, a process using photos, paint and relief print effects.

Curated by Dan Welden, the exhibit features recent work by Eric Fischl, Joan Hall, Dennis Olsen, Deb Riley and Dan Welden. The exhibition is free and open to the public.

>> An opening reception is 6-8 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 22. During the reception, free parking will be available in lot 8.

The works in the exhibit demonstrate innovative use of paper, metals and ceramics in solarplate, a non-toxic photomechanical process of printing from polymer plates that produces high-quality, detailed effects.

Gallery hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Tuesday-Friday, 2-4 p.m., Sunday 2-4, and by appointment.

For more information, contact Laura Crist at (210) 458-4391.
