Exhibit Featuring Woodcuts by Ann Conner Opens Thursday

Printed: Ann Conner Woodcuts will be on view in the Art Gallery at the Cultural Arts Building Aug. 29 through Sept. 27. The exhibit features woodcuts by nationally acclaimed Wilmington artist Ann Conner to commemorate her retirement from the UNCW Department of Art and Art History after many years of dedicated service.

An artist lecture will be held at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 29 in Cultural Arts Building room 2033, immediately followed by an opening reception in the Art Gallery from 5:30 – 7 p.m. Both the lecture and reception are free and open to the public.

Conner is known for her provocative and formally challenging color woodcuts. Using non-endangered native wood and brilliant palettes, she creates colorful, conceptualist woodcuts that employ the intrinsic grain of the wood. Her work is included in more than forty major museum and corporate print collections in the U.S. She collaborates with Flatbed Press, Austin, TX, and The Grenfell Press, NYC.
