Artist MacAnn explores printmaking process in exhibit

October 2, 2008

"Moving Pictures: New Intaglio Prints" by professor/artist Treelee MacAnn will open in the Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery at Coastal Carolina University on Thursday, Oct. 23 with a reception from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Both the exhibit and the reception are free and open to the public.

The exhibition continues through Nov. 20.

MacAnn creates a visual narrative by rearranging imagery from black and white stills and old family photographs from the same period. The exhibition features the artist's recent exploration of a new nontoxic intaglio type printmaking method.

Mac Ann is a professor of art who teaches life drawing and design. She earned a bachelor's degree in printmaking from the State University of New York at Oswego and earned an MFA from Bowling Green State University with a major in printmaking and a minor in drawing and photography.

Her work has won many awards and has been featured in more than 70 juried international and national exhibitions, as well as, numerous regional and selected exhibits.

A native of Rochester, N.Y., she studied with the nationally known printmaker Thomas Seawell. Her work can be divided into two primary areas of interest, the human form and the landscape.

Located in the Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts, the Bryan Gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday. For more information call 843-234-3466.
