Two print shows open at the Collins C. Diboll Gallery on April 3

Loyola press release - March 28, 2002

(New Orleans)óLoyola University New Orleans announces two shows featuring print portfolios. The first, "Saints and Sinners: Observations on the Sacred and the Profane," features an exchange print portfolio of artists/printmakers from both the United States and Europe. The show was organized in conjunction with the Cortona International Symposium, "A Print Odyssey 2001," and was hosted by the University of Georgia's Studies Abroad Program.

This portfolio was created by the artists and printmakers connected to and influenced by their experiences in Italy. Many of them, as teachers and artists-in-residence in the University of Georgia's Studies Abroad Program in Cortona, have had their visions shaped by this Tuscan hilltop town and the works are reflections and observations of "le Vie d'Italia."

The second show is "Student Juried Exhibition of Prints" and is presented by the Southern Graphics Council 2002. The exhibition is sponsored by the Amity Art Foundation, Inc. and is open to current student members of the Southern Graphics Council only.

The exhibitions will run from April 3 through April 12. Hours of the Collins C. Diboll Gallery are noon to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday and noon to 5 p.m., Saturday and Sunday. The Diboll Gallery is located on the fourth floor of the J. Edgar and Louise S. Monroe Library, on the main campus of Loyola University, 6363 St. Charles Ave.
