On view at MOCA Jacksonville July 1, 2020 – January 24, 2021

Multiple Ones: Contemporary Perspectives in Printmedia, features the work of contemporary printmakers, highlighting the multitude of possibilities that printmaking holds as a medium. This exhibition presents printmaking in a fresh and indisputably current way.

The centuries-old medium is traditionally associated with flat works on paper produced in mechanical iterations. The works featured here demonstrate how contemporary artists are breaking away from the traditional techniques associated with the art form, to produce unique works through unconventional methods, materials, and display.

This exhibition was curated by Sheila Goloborotko, Professor of Printmaking at University of North Florida. It was previously shown at the Hunterdon Art Museum, Clinton, New Jersey, and in the Kwan Fong Gallery of Art and Culture and William Rolland Gallery of Fine Art at California Lutheran University, Thousand Oaks, California.

Enlivened Spaces Inner Child exhibition detail of umbrellas and rain

September 10, 2020 – September 30, 2020

Gallery hours by appointment in order to comply with campus measures pertaining to COVID19.

Email unfgalleries@unf.edu to create an appointment

Exhibition description:

Have you ever seen a rainbow after the rain? To most individuals, the rainbow is seen as a beautiful phenomenon. For me, the collision of water and light leads to a new dimension where I feel safe and at ease. Because the world is riddled with the grays of anxiety, we created a space of vibrant colors to connect individuals with their inner child. The overall objective for the installation was not to preach about the facts and statistics of anxiety but to give the viewer a safe space to heal, have fun, and renew.
