The Schaefer Arts Gallery presents MSU Prints: John Winkler and students exhibit. Josh Winkler, Associate Professor, Minnesota State University, Mankato explores how: “the difficult narratives of Euro-American westward expansion and the destruction of forests and waterways continue to teach lessons on sustainability, the importance of our natural resources, and cultural discrimination. My work encourages people to think about their relationship to the environment, history, and the present moment.”

Nicolas Darcourt teaches ceramics in the Art and Art History Department at Gustavus Adolphus College.  His ceramic works use press-molded objects and hand-built shapes to focus on a mix of architectural ornament, exposed layers of earth, engineered forms, monument, and manufactured byproduct.  These coalesce into accumulations which express abstract notions of the confluence of memory, geography, and society.

African American artist Elizabeth Catlett (1915-2012) is considered through recently acquired works and through new poetry by exhibition collaborator Philip Bryant, a faculty member in the African/African Diaspora Studies Program and the English Department of Gustavus Adolphus College.  Catlett’s artworks and Bryant’s poetry are supplemented by paintings by Catlett’s contemporaries Jacob Lawrence (1917-2000) and Eldzier Corter (1916-2015), lent by the Art Bridges Foundation of Bentonville, Arkansas.
