Acclaimed printmaker Stella Ebner, whose work has been exhibited and collected in museums across the country, will conclude her spring 2017 residency with a workshop for UB art students, along with lunch and a showing of her work for UB students, faculty, and the public.
Ebner will hold a Japanese Woodblock printing demonstration from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on March 3 in rooms B37 and B38 in the Center for the Arts on the university’s North Campus. This is primarily intended for UB art students, however, anyone wishing to attend should contact Cynthia Stewart at 716-645-6073 or firstname.lastname@example.org regarding space availability.
Guests, including all UB students, faculty, and members of the public, can have lunch with the artist from 1-2 p.m. followed by a talk and exhibition of Ebner’s prints from 2-3 p.m.
All of these events are free, but registration is requested at 716-645-6073 or email@example.com.
Ebner’s work draws from contemporary American vernacular to create images that transform everyday happenstance into iconic images. In addition to her scheduled events, Ebner will use her CAI residency to create a series of screen prints inspired by the Western New York imagery. Ebner seeks to discover and create that which defines American imagery, spaces, events and moments that may be overlooked, but in the end become places of self-recognition. Her goal is to create a series of prints around the complexity of America’s social fabric and provide a glimpse into contemporary lifestyles.
Ebner is dedicated to the art and history of printmaking and demonstrating that the unique voice of the art form holds deep value and promise in contemporary art and society. With a focus on craft, she pushes today’s rigid and process-driven methods of printmaking into the realm of art to create work that transcends the possibilities of the medium.
