Several prints by William R. Kenan Professor of Art Bruce Muirhead and Professor of Art William Salzillo are on display at the Bradley International Print and Drawing Exhibition in Peoria, Ill. Included in the exhibition are Muirhead’s “Secret Viewers” and “Fourth of July,” and “Nightingale” by Salzillo. Organized by Bradley University, the biennial juried show runs through April 15.
German-American painter and printmaker Robert Ernst Marx is the juror for this year’s exhibition. His works are included in many notable collections including the Museum of Modern Art and the National Gallery of Art.
Since the first show in 1950, the Bradley Print Show has grown from a national exhibition to an international show attracting artists from all over the world and all stages of their careers. More than 90 artists are represented in this year’s show.
Works by Muirhead and Salzillo will also be shown, along with those of Amy Georgia Buchholz ’80 and Jake Muirhead ’86, in an exhibition that runs from March 13 to April 27 at the Kirkland Art Center. The foursome, known as the Atelier Four, has worked collaboratively in printmaking for more than 30 years. The opening reception for the show is April 10 from 3-5 p.m. at the KAC.
