Mark Rice Visiting Artist

cool,Events,Lectures,Visiting Artist — KVH @ 11:34 am, Thursday, October 31st, 2013

Artist and Printmaker Mark Rice will be visiting the Dolphin Building this coming Saturday, November 2nd, for two hours starting around 11AM. He will be demonstrating copper plate engraving, and showing off a suite of 88 prints from his thesis exhibition at RISD.


A little bit about Mark:

Mark Rice recently moved to Philadelphia, PA from South Carolina, where he taught art history and drawing at the University of South Carolina Upstate, and was an Artist-in-Residence at Hub-Bub. In 2011, he received his MFA in printmaking from the Rhode Island School of Design. The topics of communication, memory, and advertising are a central focus of his work, as is the subjective documentation of personal and cultural symbols.

As a graduate student at the Rhode Island School of Design, Rice’s work took the form of an auto-biographical creation myth, illustrated by a series of eighty-eight prints utilizing methods of relief, engraving, and intaglio printmaking technique and written in the invented phonetic language. The work was Influenced by early book projects from the early 16thcentury such as the Nuremberg Chronicle and the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili. The print series served as documentation of previously constructed works of interactive installation, sculpture, drawing, and music.

Mark’s visit is being sponsored by the Continuing Studies Department, and he will be visiting Ursula Minervini’s class. The demo and talk are free and open to anyone – just stop by! Estimated start time is 11:15 PM in the Intaglio Studio.

Studio Cleanup Reminder

Department — faculty @ 10:26 am, Friday, October 18th, 2013

As we approach midterms, this is a friendly reminder to clean up after you are done working. All materials and tools have a place they should be stored. All waste must be discarded properly. All surfaces must be cleaned, in exactly the way your instructors have taught you. Cleaning takes only a few moments, and there is no reason to leave a mess behind.

Thank you for your cooperation.
