Belton, Texas – The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor Art Department and the College of Visual and Performing Arts are proud to present the exhibition Four Texas Women Printmakers September 30 through November 1, in the Baugh Center for Visual Arts Gallery. A public reception and artist’s talk will be held at 5:00 p.m. on Monday, September 30. The event is free and open to the public.
Tess Doyle, Annalise Gratovich, Liz Hermanson, and Polly Morwood will be the featured artists. These women explore numerous types of fine art printing processes including block printing, etching, lithography, silkscreen, and more.
Doyle creates an array of figurative and symbol-heavy imagery. Her drawings and prints often contain bizarre narratives and pastiche. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree in Printmaking from the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design. She currently works as an art educator at the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Houston. She also serves as Press Assistant at Burning Bones Press.
Since receiving her BFA in Printmaking from the University of Texas at Austin, Gratovich has exhibited and served as a visiting artist extensively in the United States, Canada, Germany, and Iran. Through purposeful and meticulous detail, her art advocates for positive change and gives voice marginalized communities.
