Summer Hours and Plans

Even though P.R.I.N.T Press closes from 13 May through 19 August, the students, staff and alumni will be busy and productive this summer. Here's what Laura Drapac, Lari Gibbons, Thomas Menikos, Su Tran and Jon Vogt are planning for the coming months:

Work by Laura Drapac
Laura Drapac will show new works from her Gloved series at the Phoenix gallery space in Cleveland, Ohio from 1 June through 1 August. She will then assist Frogman's Print and Paper workshops at the University of South Dakota in Vermillion, South Dakota from late June to mid-July.

Lari Gibbons' Traces at MOCA's UNF Gallery
Lari Gibbons is traveling to Jacksonville, Florida for her exhibition Traces at the University of North Florida Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville. She is also installing work for the exhibition Press: o.n. with Dean Dass, Sandra Fernandez and herself in conjunction with PrintHouston 2013.

Work by Thomas Menikos
Congratulations to Thomas Menikos, who received a BFA in Printmaking at UNT in fall 2012 and will start his graduate studies at the University of Dallas this September. In the meantime, he is researching the history of cryptography, tachygraphy and visual stenography while concurrently experimenting with these techniques and algorithms in his own work.

Su Tran will travel to Vermillion, South Dakota to take Bookbinding Boot Camp by Margot Ecke at Frogman's Print and Paper workshops at the University of South Dakota.

Jon Vogt will build a vacuum table with fellow graduate students in printmaking to enable screenprinting on a larger scale. He also plans to complete an edition at P.R.I.N.T Press for printmaker John Risseeuw, Professor at Arizona State University and Director of Pyracantha Press.
