Richard Ash to Present Gallery Talk at BaylorNov. 6, 2008
Ash has been ardently focused on the print medium since 1980. Though he is well versed in various printmaking techniques, he has a strong preference for the screen-printing process. This passion for printmaking developed as a freshman at the Fort Wayne Art Institute in Indiana, and progressed as he went on to earn both his B.F.A. and M.F.A. from Wichita State University, receiving a major in printmaking and a minor in painting. He currently teaches printmaking and drawing at Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas. In addition, he has also conducted multiple University funded research projects aimed at further exploring printmaking techniques. His works have been exhibited across the United States and included in several public collections such as those at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, the Los Angeles Print Society, Los Angeles, and the State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, Linekona Art Center, Honolulu, Hawaii.
Prints 1997-2007, featuring forty-four prints by Ash will run through November 18 at the Martin Museum of Art.
