Rhea Nowak – “The Cairns”
3/5 – 4/12/19
Wallace & Foyer Galleries
Public Reception: Friday, 3/29/19, 6PM-8PM
Artist Talk: Thursday, 4/4/19, 6PM
In creating “The Cairns,” Nowak uses traditional and contemporary etching techniques and combines mark making with photo-based images to develop a lexicon of signs, symbols, and glyphs. Her Cairns Series of prints and artist’s books explore what it means to read and understand both the familiar and the unfamiliar, a landscape or a sign.

“This exhibit showcases Nowak’s mastery of printmaking. The delicate landscapes are embellished with carefully planted symbols and signs that are enhanced by choice patterns and textures,” said Belinda Colón, Curator at the Arts Center.” “The work is arranged just so. I wanted the viewer to easily digest the delicate color, texture and symbols within and outside of the landscapes they accompany.” Rhea Nowak received her BA from Bennington College in Printmaking and Painting, an MFA from the University of Connecticut in Printmaking and Drawing, and a Master Printer Certificate from Il Bisonte, an international school of printmaking in Florence, Italy. After teaching in Connecticut for a number of years she joined the Art Department faculty at SUNY College at Oneonta. Her prints, mixed media drawings, and unique books have been exhibited in juried and solo shows in both the U.S. and Europe. Her work involves ideas of continuity, chance, and change, and draws from such sources as Buddhist philosophy, musical composition and current scientific theories.
