Tonight (Tuesday, January 18) at 6:00 p.m. the exhibition "The Workshop and the World: Renaissance Prints from Private Collections" will open. The reception will be the first chance to see this show of original artworks from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries–selections from private collections with strong Truman State University connections. Works on display incude prints by great printmakers such as Albrecht Dürer, Lucas Cranach, and Albrecht Altdorfer, as well as two pages from the Nuremberg Chronicle. In addition, the show includes a beautiful seventeenth-century etching and drypoint by Rembrandt van Rijn, as well as four examples of ekphrasis (a poem writting describing or in response to a work of art) written by Truman State University poets; these poems have been handset and letterpress printed by the Art Department's Print Shop.
