Baylor Art Gallery to Host Kreneck Exhibition

Aug. 10, 1995

Baylor University will host the Lynwood Kreneck exhibition "Clownz" Aug. 29-Sept. 27 in the University Gallery, located in Hooper-Schafer Fine Arts Center on the Baylor campus.

The exhibit will feature 20 pieces of monotype screen prints which "use the clown as a vehicle to speak about the state of humanity," said Paul A. McCoy, gallery director and assistant professor of art.

"(It is) an exhibit that people will thoroughly enjoy. These are all very recognizable images that are masterfully executed. It is a positive experience," he said of the richly colored exhibition.

McCoy described many of the paintings as "tongue in cheek" but said the "content transcends the surface humor."

Kreneck is a senior professor at Texas Tech University and the "father of water-based screen printing," McCoy said. Kreneck has been featured in more than 120 exhibitions and has received 38 national and international awards. Examples of Kreneck's work have appeared in many textbooks, and he also has produced many publications of his own, McCoy said.

"(Kreneck) revolutionized the field of water-based screen printing," McCoy said. His most famous exhibit, "Color Print USA," is a "highly respected national exhibition."

In addition to the exhibition, Kreneck will lecture at 2 p.m. Monday, Sept. 18, in Room 149 of the Hooper-Schaefer Fine Arts Center.

The University Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and noon to 5 p.m. Saturday.
