Loyola at a Glance
Visual arts professor's etchings displayed at NOMA
January 9, 2009
Karoline Schleh, assistant professor of visual arts and director of the Collins C. Diboll Art Gallery, currently has two etchings on display at the New Orleans Museum of Art exhibit, “Prints Past & Prints Present: Limited Editions from Louisiana.” The exhibit will be on display at NOMA through March 1.
The etchings, which are a part of NOMA’s permanent collection, were originally part of a series based on the poems of New York City poet Marcella Durand.
In association with the exhibit, Schleh presented a printmaking workshop on Nov. 19, which demonstrated the process of printing a copper etching plate on a small press. The process was popularized by well known artists such as Rembrandt and continues its popularity today as a fine art medium.
On Friday, Jan. 16, Schleh will sponsor a bookmaking workshop in St. Mary's Hall, Room 201, at 1:30 p.m. Two artists, Angela Driscoll and Laura Richens, will demonstrate a variety of bookmaking techniques and how to construct a thaumatrope, a Victorian era animated toy. Workshop participants will be supplied materials.
