The Turner Presents "Issues" Exhibit Through Dec. 16

The Janet Turner Print Museum’s final exhibition for 2012, Issues: Social, Political, Gender, features artworks “that take a stand,” according to curator Catherine Sullivan.

Works in this exhibition will include everything from the direct and humorous to the uncomfortable parody.

“Some of the works will challenge personal moral beliefs of the viewer, or what is proper for artistic subject,” noted curator Catehrine Sullivan. “Other images will recall previous yet still relevant issues under a patina of nostalgia.”

Artists whose works will be represented include former CSU, Chico student Meghan Moyse, former artist in residence printmaker Jenny Schmid, 19th century English printmaker Issac Cruikshank, 19th century American Social Realism artist John Sloan, and Bay Area art activist Art Hazelwood.

Issues: Social, Political, Gender runs November 13-December 16. On December 6 there will be a reception at 5:30 p.m. followed by a curator’s talk at 6 p.m.
