Hoyt Hosts Reception for New Exhibits Friday

NEW CASTLE, Pa. – Arts & Education at the Hoyt is hosting a reception for new printmaking exhibits by Robin Gibson, James Stewart and Jack Carlton from 6 to 8 p.m. Aug. 4.

Gibson’s exhibition, “Loose Footing,” interprets the landscape with lithography, collagraphs, mezzotints, etchings and other printmaking processes that allow her imagination to manipulate what has been seen.

Stewart’s exhibition, “Like a Bird Entering a Window…” represents a series of collaborative, hand-sewn artist books between the artist, poet Phillip Terman, and bookbinder Susan Frakes.

Carlton’s untitled exhibition also includes a series of hand-bound artist books, but ones that interpret his personal response to social issues, current events and political activism that has touched the artist in some way.

Both Carlton and Stewart will provide insight into their work with artist lectures and poetry readings at the reception Friday. Admission is free. Copies of Stewart’s books will also be available. The exhibitions will remain on display through Oct. 5.
