Robert Stevenson on Narrative: Moving Forward, in Retrospect

Art Talk,Art Show,Gallery,Prints

Stevenson is a California artist whose works can be found in public collections of the Morrison Library in Berkeley, CA, McNeese University in Lake Charles, LA, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. He has also worked as a printer or as master printer with such noteworthy artists as Peter Voulkos, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and Terry Allen. This show comprises seven bodies of work that explore the idea of the role of narration through static, printed images. These bodies of work take narrative strategies in several different directions, including animation, hand-made book forms, paper structures, non-traditional hanging techniques, and a scroll that is seen in the round. Over 1500 individual images will be included, the majority of them etchings made over a two-decade span. On view through March 2. Reception Thursday, Feb. 8 at 5:30 p.m. Artist talk at 6.
