The Art Department welcomes printmaker Betsey A. Garand to campus on Thursday, April 16. She will lecture at 4:30pm in Bixler 154. This event is free and open to the public.
Garand is Senior Resident Artist in the Department of Art and the History of Art at Amherst College, where she is head of printmaking. Garand is a New Hampshire native where she grew up on a small, self-sufficient family farm. She received her BFA in Printmaking from the University of New Hampshire and an MFA in Printmaking from Tyler School of Art of Temple University. Her recent prints and drawings engage with the themes of continuum, balance, and growth, elements existent in physical and psychological life. Seemingly familiar objects are layered beneath and above biomorphic and geometric shapes.
