Evan Summer Art Show

Details

A new art exhibit featuring the work of Evan Summer will open this month at Cedar Crest College. The exhibit, titled “Time, Change and Place,” will be on display in the Center for Visual Research from January 15 through February 23, 2018.

Summer specializes in printmaking. His artwork is influenced by his background in science, and many of his pieces feature architectural or geometric forms.

“Most of the images in this exhibition are stark, unpopulated landscapes,” Summer said. “I like the challenge of creating something that is simultaneously abandoned, beautiful, mysterious and uncomfortable. It’s an aesthetic more complex and interesting than a landscape that is just beautiful.”

Summer has showcased his work in hundreds of exhibitions worldwide and in many public museum collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Gallery of Art and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Summer received his MFA from Yale University and has been teaching printmaking at Kutztown University for more than 30 years.

“Time, Change and Place” will open on January 15. There will be a reception and artist talk on February 9 from 5:15-7:15 p.m. in the Center for Visual Research, which is located in the Miller Family Building at Cedar Crest College.
