A new print exhibit at the UNO-St. Claude Gallery will feature the work of James Bailey, professor of printmaking, painting and drawing at the University of Montana’s School of Art. The show kicks off with an opening reception Saturday, Nov. 10 from 6-9 p.m. and runs through Dec. 2.
Bailey’s work utilizes abstract and non-objective imagery derived from geometry and patterns, which are intrinsic to the medium of printmaking. Repetition, also inherent in the medium, creates motifs of lines, shapes and colors in the work.
Bailey founded Matrix Press in 1998 at the University of Montana, creating a publishing component of the University’s print program. His work has been exhibited throughout the U.S. and internationally in Estonia, France, China, Australia, New Zealand and Canada.
The UNO-St. Claude Gallery is located at 2429 St. Claude Ave. Regular gallery hours during the exhibition are 12-5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
