In honor of The Print Center’s Centennial, The University of the Arts has organized an exhibition by Pennsylvania based printmaker, Shelley Thorstensen, winner of a solo exhibition at The Print Center from the 81st Annual International Competition: Printmaking in 2007.
Art critic Edward Sozanski wrote of Thorstensen’s work “The ease with which she combines these processes and exploits their individual strengths gives her prints uncommon presence and, more often than not, transcendent beauty”. Recent solo shows include: Since the River Spoke at the Rose Lehrman Gallery, (2013), This the Smoke from when the Horses Left at the Painted Bride (2011), Counterpoint: The Leap from Vision to Print at Woodmere Art Museum (2010) and The Preponderance of Evidence at The Print Center (2009). Her work can be seen at Dolan/Maxwell in Philadelphia and at The Print Center Gallery Store.
Field Study: The Scheme of Things is presented as part of The Print Center 100. On view September 22 – October 9, 2015. Reception: Friday, October 2, 5:00 – 7:00pm
