Upcoming IU East exhibit features printmaker

January 16th, 2009

Indiana University East will be showcasing “The Works of Kathy L. McGhee,” in The Gallery beginning January 26 through March 18.

“Indirectly through the use of stories and images, people can see and observe themselves in a new light. We have been exposed to fables, parables, myths, and stories with hidden meanings and depth all of our lives,” McGhee said. “This ability to assimilate ourselves into a story of image and to discover hidden meaning is something with which I have been experimenting for some time. The significance of this and what it means in regard to how we think, perceive ourselves, and how we interact with others is of great interest to me.”

As a printmaker, McGhee employs various types of printmaking processes; such as intaglio, lithography, serigraphy, and relief (using primarily linoleum). McGhee is currently an instructor at the Columbus College of Art and Design, where she teaches printmaking.

A reception will be held for the artist at 7 p.m. on January 28. Visitors are welcome to view the exhibit during gallery hours, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. For more information, call Ed Thornburg, gallery curator, at (765) 973-8605 or visit www.iue.edu/gallery.
