Seeds to Sow: Remembering Paul Martyka (1950-2016)

Monday, Sept. 17-Friday, Nov. 16
Rutledge and Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Galleries

“Seeds to Sow” is an exhibition celebrating long-time artist and influential Associate Professor Emeritus Paul Martyka (1950-2016). The work displayed in the Rutledge and Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Galleries showcases the broad spectrum of his work in printmaking, painting and mixed media from his years as a student in Michigan until 2015. By observing a timeline of his career, the high level of artistry given to his methods and creative vision becomes evident. His use of a geometric iconography, attention to color and continual experimentation show us his distinct visual style. In addition to the works he made independently, the exhibition will feature collaborative works with students, highlighting his attention to the development of future artists.
