    Skopelos Foundation for the Arts: A Site for artistic and cultural exchange

    Thursday, July 8, 2021 | 7:00 pm 

    In association with the Zuckerman Museum of Art’s exhibition Hand Print Workshop International: Process & Innovation, the Museum presents a virtual lecture by Georgia Deal and Nancy Zimler. Their presentation will focus on the lengthy history between the Skopelos Foundation for the Arts in Skopelos, Greece and the late Dennis O’Neil, founder and director of Hand Print Workshop International and professor at the Corcoran College of Art + Design.  O’Neil helped build and develop the printmaking studios at Skopelos, and then later with Corcoran colleagues, Steven Cushner, Georgia Deal and others, developed a robust study abroad program in screenprinting, painting, monoprinting, book arts, and photography. The additional goal of this academic program was to immerse students not only in the Island’s cultural and artistic offerings but that of the larger Greek culture by visiting Athens, Thessaloniki and surrounding islands. Dennis O’Neil created a rewarding experience for all who participated in this unique and special studio experience that ran until 2018 at the Skopelos Foundation for the Arts, under the auspices of the Corcoran as well as the Hand Print Workshop. This program is presented in conjunction with KSU’s Annual Country Study Program, Year of Greece.
