Milton’s advanced independent art students stopped by the Nesto Gallery for an impromptu discussion with Wellesley College’s professor of art, Phyllis McGibbon, as she installed her piece,Glimpses and Ruminations. Ms. McGibbon is one of seven artists featured in the Nesto’s exhibit,Contemporary New England Printmakers. Celebrating New England’s long tradition in printmaking, this collection of art—curated by Bill Fick, founding director of renowned printmaking shop, Supergraphic— includes the work of college educators and master printmakers influenced by strong roots in the region.
“The exhibit features highly crafted work and a diverse approach to materials, themes and concepts that collectively presents a breadth and depth of the most contemporary printmaking processes,” says visual arts chair, Ian Torney.
The show kicked off with an opening reception on Friday, January 17. The exhibit is free and open to the public through February 21. The Nesto Gallery is located in the lower level of the Art and Media Center.
