The Rowe Galleries present exhibitions of work by two faculty members of the Department of Art & Art History. David Brodeur is Associate Professor of Graphic Design.

Jon Swindler: Raise/Frame/Raze
Amanda Lee, McColl Visiting Artist: Praxis

March 11-31
Opening Reception: Wednesday, March 11, 5-7 pm

The Department of Art & Art History and Rowe Galleries present two printmaking shows by guest artists Jon Swindler and Amanda Lee, March 11-31.

Jon Swindler is a member of the Printmaking and Book Arts faculty in the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia. An essential by-product of his creative activity is an abundance of printed remnants, or visual leftovers.  These accumulated failures, incidents and accidents are continually re-printed or recycled, creating unforeseen visual phenomena and fluctuating conceptual circumstances. Seattle-based artist Amanda Lee is the 2015 McColl Center for Art + Innovation/UNC Charlotte Visiting Artist. During her residency, Lee has developed a course in collaboration with Assistant Professor Erik Waterkotte. The project culminates in Praxis, an exhibition of work by Lee and print media students. Praxis in this case maintains two meanings: acting on one's ideals, and the practice of a skill or an art. The result is a stunning collection of ephemera and print media that raises the awareness of a range of personal passions and societal issues.

The opening reception is preceded by an artist talk at 4:00 pm.
