  • NOW through DEC. 6 | CARLOS PALOMARES “Grabador” EXHIBITION | Bob Purser Art Gallery |  The Bob Purser Art Gallery is excited to present a solo exhibition by Mexican printmaker Carolos Palomares.  Carlos’ relief prints on paper speak to the history of relief printmaking in Mexican culture.  Some of the subjects in the exhibited works are personal in theme and represent people, animals, and plants that surround Carlos and are part of his daily life in the “Altiplano” area of the Mexican state of San Luis Potosi.  Please visit the
    Bob Purser Art Gallery web site to read more information about the exhibit and times the gallery is open to view this grand exhibit.

Comments from Jono Vaughan – “We are also playing a documentary on the famous Mexican printmaking movement, Taller de Gráphica Popular or TGP.  Didactics are in both English and Spanish, so it offers a great chance for Spanish courses to learn about Mexican printmaking and culture.  It is also an excellent chance for all faculty to present students with an opportunity to connect with a culture that is currently experiencing tremendous pressure from the Federal Government.  This is really a strong show and I want everyone to see it before Dec. 6th. Gallery hours on the website are accurate for drop ins.  Or faculty can reach out to me for an appointment if they want a guided tour.”
