VIOLENCE!
An exhibition featuring prints, drawings, ceramics, and sculptures that capture the artist's response to forms of societal violence, including war, terrorism, torture, execution, slavery, religious persecution, racial bigotry, censorship, and isolation.
"Lines of pain cut the world. Violence begins as an electrical impulse: neurons fire, fibers twitch. Even in its most refined forms, violence springs from an instinctual core shut to direct rational analysis. Art originates from the same primal energy uncorrupted by avarice, hate and fear. Violence! reminds us that 'eye sight is insight.'"
~from the essay by Tony Osborne, Associate Professor, Communication Arts

THE PARIS REVIEW: PRINTS AND POSTERS
The Paris Review, a literary magazine with an online presence [ Paris Review ], noted the following about The Paris Review Print Series:
“In 1964 Drue Heinz made a gift to The Paris Review to enable the magazine to initiate a series of prints and posters by major contemporary artists, the purpose of which was to encourage works in the print medium while publicizing The Paris Review and providing financial support for the magazine. Largely through the efforts of Jane Wilson, a fellow artist and the director of the program, twenty-three artists – among them Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Helen Frankenthaler, and Robert Motherwell – were persuaded to donate signed and limited editions of original work.”
These lithographs and silk-screens, from Gonzaga University’s permanent art collection, included works by Christo, Sol LeWitt, Richard Lindner, Carol Summers, and Terry Winters.
