University of Tennessee, Knoxville

University of Tennessee Art DepartmentLast week I was a guest artist at the University of Tennessee’s Art Department, a visit sponsored by their Print Club. The two-day trip was packed with activities and student critiques. Tuesday night I gave a lecture for a general audience at the school; Wednesday I had discussions with sophomore graphic design students about producing artists’ books and an evening workshop in paper engineering; Thursday I met with graduate printmaking students to discuss their work. I also had time to see a few galleries in downtown Knoxville, hear a little bluegrass music, and visit the fabulous Yee Haw Industries letterpress shop. Thanks to Katie Ries and Jason Shoemaker for arranging the visit, and to Beauvais Lyons for making me a welcomed visitor in the printmaking department.
