Terry Winters: Prints & Sequences Opens at Colby College Museum of Art on July 27
Winter works serially, and this exhibition will allow viewers to explore works within and across series. Winters creates both formal and conceptual links between individual prints in a series as well as in his work in other media. Terry Winters: Prints & Sequences will show a number of series in their entirety.
The exhibition is accompanied by an illustrated catalogue with an essay by Clifford S. Ackley, curator of prints and drawings at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, that contextualizes the artists printmaking practice within the mediums history.
According to Ackley, "It is an all-too-familiar cliche in histories of graphic art that many of the most expressive original prints are those created by painters: Albrecht Durer, Rembrandt, Goya, Picasso -- the list goes on. This cliche is also a reality," he wrote in an essay about Winters. "Painters -- whether active in their own workshops, or working with professional printers as do Winters and the majority of his contemporaries -- are generally more inclined to introduce fresh imagery into their prints and are also often more inventive in discovering new approaches to the use of print media."
The Colby College Museum of Art is open 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and noon to 4:30 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free, and the museum is accessible to people with disabilities.
