Associate Professor Kathy Aoki accepted an invitation to be the Norma Seibert Visiting Artist in Printmaking at Oregon State University (Corvallis).
In January, Associate Professor Kathy Aoki accepted an invitation to be the Norma Seibert Visiting Artist in Printmaking at Oregon State University (Corvallis). Aoki created an edition of political relief prints and lectured about her work to students, faculty and the local community. A highlight of her trip was a visit to the pigment lab at OSU, where she met Chemistry Professor Mas Subramanian of the new "Mas Blue," a vibrant and stable blue pigment discovered by accident in the lab and known for its heat reflective properties. If you would like to see the sample of the first new blue in 200 years, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by the Department of Art and Art History. Exhibition in New York: A panel of jurors selected three intaglio prints by Kathy Aoki for inclusion in "Idols and Impossible Structures: New Prints/Winter 2017" at the International Print Center New York.
