Art Gallery Reception, Artist's Talk Rescheduled for Feb. 22
by Sean Flynt on 2011-02-07
The reception and artist's talk featuring Mary Ann Sampson has been rescheduled for 5-7 p.m. Feb. 22 in Samford Art Gallery. The original schedule was disrupted by inclement weather.
The Visiting Visual Artist Series exhibit featuring Sampson's work continues through Feb. 23. "Mary Ann Sampson
Bookmaking and Printmaking" showcases the vibrant printed work
that often reflects the artist's Ragland, Alabama home.
Sampson received a master's degree in book arts from the
University of Alabama and now operates OEOCO Press (One Eye Opera Company) with
the mission of bookbinding and making limited edition letterpress and
one-of-a-kind books. Her work, which focuses on miniatures and broadsides and generally
explores the book as a means of visual expression, has been shown extensively in
the United States and abroad.
The exhibit will include a free public reception and artist's
talk 5-7 p.m. Feb. 22.
Samford Art Gallery is open 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. Monday-Friday.
