Master Printer to Exhibit at UW-RF


SEPT. 16, 2005--The paintings of master printer David Jones and work from his firm Anchor Graphics is on exhibit Sept. 30 to Oct. 23 at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls Gallery 101, located in the Kleinpell Fine Arts Building. An opening reception and artist's talk is set for 3 p.m. on Sept. 30.

Jones is the executive director and founder of Anchor Graphics, a nonprofit print atelier in the warehouse district of Chicago. In addition to his selection of etchings, monotypes and lithographs created in collaboration with his firm, prints by well-known Chicago artists in the exhibit include Ed Paschke and Jim Nutt.

Prints by Jones in the exhibit follow the tradition of the "family snapshot " and "street photographer"--documenting transitory moments in his life and encounters. His uses a simplified transfer lithographic technique, which he further embellishes with subtle color. The unfocused, ambiguous character of his work is intended to invite the viewer to question content--the where, who and what of the visual narrative.

Jones holds a B.F.A. in printmaking and painting from the Kansas City Art institute. He has also taught courses in printmaking at Columbia College and at the Art Institute of Chicago. He is the executive director of Anchor Graphics, which is a nonprofit print atelier in the warehouse district of Chicago.

Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday and also 2 to 4 p.m. on Sunday. For more information contact the UW-River Falls art department at 715/425-3266.
