The exhibit “Etchings from the University of Central Oklahoma Art Department” will be on display September 14th through the 25th at the Lachenmeyer Arts Center. The show includes 14 intaglio prints made by art students in the last eight years. The prints showcase examples of etching, aquatint, chine colle’ and soft ground. “Intaglio” is the printmaking term that encompasses all of these techniques but the generic term “etching” is more universally known. Artists have been creating etchings since the mid fifteenth century.
The Lachenmeyer Arts Center has sponsored the art show held in conjunction with the Festival in the Park for 21 years. Approximately a thousand people a year attend classes, workshops or view exhibits at the Lachenmeyer Arts Center. The center is located at 700 S. Little Ave. in the Cushing Youth & Community Center. Hours are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday & Friday and 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday & Thursday. For more information call Rob Smith at 918-225-7525.
