‘Coffee and Chocolate Reception’ with printmaker at Jackson library

Written by 

art liddleA “Coffee and Chocolate Reception” and gallery talk with artist Matt Liddle will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 13, at the Jackson County Public Library Complex in Sylva. 


Liddle will talk about works in his exhibit, “Selected Prints,” now showing at the Rotunda Gallery through March 6. This exhibition features original prints produced over the past five years. The exhibition includes work in a variety of print media, including relief, screen print, photopolymer intaglio and vitreography. The images range from the figurative to the abstract, including Liddle’s most recent work printed from pieces of pegboard. In these works, the surface of the pegboard has been cut and printed like a reduction woodcut, with colors being overprinted in layers. As each layer is cut and overprinted, the previous color is revealed.

Liddle is a printmaker and book artist who has been making prints for over 30 years. He received a BA in Visual Studies from Dartmouth College in 1983 and an MFA in Printmaking/Book Arts from The University of the Arts in 1991. He moved from Philadelphia to Cullowhee in 1995, when he was hired by WCU to be the studio coordinator of the printmaking and book arts area. He is currently serving as the Director of the School of Art and Design. Liddle is also one of the co-directors of the Paper and Book Intensive.

The event is hosted by the Jackson County Arts Council.

This Must Be the Place

  • This must be the place

    art theplaceIt’s not only a time capsule, but also a window into the future.

    With guitars in-hand, The DuPont Brothers are two men, two voices that become a singular melodic force. The Vermont-based siblings are quite possibly the finest acoustic duo out there today, nationally or internationally. Their mesmerizing sound and pure intent perpetuates a long line of powerhouse harmonic acts, bringing names like Simon & Garfunkel and Seals & Crofts to mind.
