    The American Print Alliance September 11, 2001 Memorial Portfolio Exhibition

    September 10 – October 2, 2021 

    Closing reception: Wednesday, September 29, 5:00 - 7:00 pm 
    The American Print Alliance September 11, 2001 Memorial Portfolio Exhibition 
    “A memorial portfolio is a way to help us understand the loss of so many individual lives.” 
    Dr. Carol Pulin, Director of the American Print Alliance, started this project by suggesting that each artist create one print to commemorate one person. Pulin intended for this portfolio to honor individual lives and thereby, create a new legacy from the terrible events that took place on 9/11. Each contributing artist is a member of an alliance council or a subscriber to the journal, Contemporary Impressions. The imagery reflected in each print is as distinct as the artists, who range in age from high school students to retirees. Many works commemorate life with imagery of landscapes, figures, city scenes, abstractions, and some with expressions of sorrow or hope. The portfolio memorial is intended to cherish memories of life, with artwork as individual as those who are no longer with us. The scale of the project will unavoidably remind viewers of the number of innocent lives lost on September 11, 2001. The power of this memorial comes from seeing the actual prints in the exhibition and the representation of numerous communities, demonstrating the role of the arts in all of our lives.

          New Visions 2022 Annual Juried Student Exhibition

          January 18 - February 26, 2022

          Reception: Wednesday, January 19, 5:00 - 7:00 pm 

          The New Visions exhibition series provides students across all disciplines of the School of Art and Design the ability to showcase their talent and skill. The newly revitalized series continues to offer students an annual juried exhibition opportunity as originated by the Visions Registered Student Organization, the first arts organization at KSU, when the College of the Arts was founded. The ZMA is excited to continue expanding this longstanding tradition by featuring a prominent artist, critic, or curator to serve as both juror and visiting lecturer. These additional associations serve each respective discipline with visibility, exposing students to diverse points-of-view, practices, and techniques. Moreover, this approach acknowledges the internal and external associations of advanced learning through relevant engagements and dialogues among leading artists, curators, and critics.

          The New Visions 2022 exhibition will be juried by artist Carson Fox

            In Conversation: The Fluid and The Concrete

            Artists Book Exhibition Curated by Cynthia Nourse Thompson

            Closing reception: Wednesday, April 6, 2022, 5:00 – 7:00 pm  

            This exhibition presents an exquisite selection of contemporary artists books published by Sue Gosin, president of Dieu Donne Press and co-chair of Dieu Donne Papermill in New York.   

            Each work on view is produced as a collaboration between papermaker, bookbinder, visual artist and poet, and illustrates the rich and notable developments in the field of modern hand papermaking. The fluid sensibility of this medium alone offers unlimited realizations as the foundation for encompassing a variety of techniques, processes, and aesthetics. Thus, this exhibition celebrates the power and artistry of both the book form and the visual and written word. Artists in the exhibition include Lesley Dill with poetry by Tom Sleigh, Jane Hammond with poetry by Raphael Rubenstein, William Kentridge with poetry by Wislawa Szymborska, Abbey Leigh with writings by W. H. Auden, Michele Oka Doner with her own writing, Mark Strand with his own writing and imagery along with poetry from many other writers, and Eliza Kentridge with her own writing and imagery. The exhibition will also feature work by Sue Gosin.    

            • Susan Gosin received her MFA in 1976 from the University of Wisconsin, Madison after studying with Walter Hamady in the book arts and Warrington Colescott in intaglio. Upon completion of her master's, she co-founded Dieu Donné Press and Paper in New York City. For more than 30 years, she has collaborated with artists and writers as designer and publisher of two and three-dimensional art as well as limited editions of artist books. Her artist books have been exhibited and collected by such institutions as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, N.Y.; the Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.; and the American Cultural Center, Tel Aviv, Israel. She has been awarded grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Tiffany Foundation, and in 2006 received the Printmaker Emeritus Award from the Southern Graphics Council.

She has written numerous articles about the development of contemporary hand papermaking for magazines such as Art On Paper and pens a column for Hand Papermaking Magazine about the pioneers in the field. Currently, she publishes new work as president of Dieu Donné Press and serves as co-chair of Dieu Donné Papermill in New York City.
