James Maxwell Exhibit
Tennessee Wesleyan University will host an art exhibition on campus in the Murial S. Mayfield Gallery in Reece Hall, with a reception and discussion on Friday, March 31, from 2pm – 4pm.
This Exhibition is a retrospective of the last ten years of photogravures by James Maxwell drawn from four different portfolios: architecture, rocket man, rocket science, and Kentucky Vernacular. The images are digital captures translated through the photopolymer photogravure process and printed on fine cotton rag paper.
“I find the inking in this beautiful non-silver process to be exciting. Every time I pull a print from the plate it’s like Christmas,” said Maxwell. “The inking offers significant control. I experiment with multiple passes through the press. I use selective inking and I vary the inks I use from time to time. Consequently, many of my prints are one-offs or unique impressions.”
The public is invited to view these works in the Mayfield Gallery at 216 N. Jackson Street.
