Artist Lisa Pixley to Present Exhibit in UE’s Melvin Peterson Gallery
Posted: Wednesday, October 4, 2017
“Putting on Airs,” an exhibit of prints by artist Lisa Pixley, will be displayed at the University of Evansville’s Melvin Peterson Gallery from October 30-December 9. On Thursday, November 9, there will be a reception for Pixley at 6:30 p.m., and a lecture by the artist at 7:00 p.m. These events, which are free and open to the public, are part of the Efroymson Family Fund Emerging Contemporary Artist Lecture Series.
An artist printmaker located in Portland, Maine, Pixley earned her BFA with a concentration in painting from the Maine College of Art. After graduation, she began a commercial and artistic practice focusing on the craft of print. Pixley studied as an apprentice with David Wolfe of Wolfe Editions, where she worked closely with artists such as Charlie Hewitt and Allison Hildreth.
In 2009 Pixley founded Pickwick Independent Press in Portland, a for profit shared access print studio where she worked as director, master printer, and events coordinator, while also maintaining an active art practice in the medium of printmaking.
Pixley is currently developing a new venture: WIP Editions. WIP Editions will function as a storefront studio entity as well as an online presence. Under the imprint of WIP Editions, she will be developing a body of work showcasing suites of prints of her work as well as the work of invited artists.
The Melvin Peterson Gallery is located at 1935 Lincoln Avenue on the corner of Lincoln and Weinbach Avenues in Evansville.
