Art in Action

Poster - Scoot Reeds Art Exhibit

Most professors are only seen as teachers in the classroom, but adjunct professor of art Scott Reeds puts his artistic creativity into practice on campus and in New York City. In November he curated the first professional art exhibit on the Rutherford campus, "Inside Out," and is one of the artists selected to participate in a prints exhibition at the International Print Center New York. 

The exhibition, "Edging Forward," reflects the "highly experimental nature of contemporary printmaking, which is wide-ranging in both its content and techniques. Masterful lithographs, etchings, and relief prints are deployed in deeply felt personal narratives, but above all, the artists on view in Edging Forward are tenacious explorers, testing the limits of their field one work at a time," according to ppcny.org. The exhibition runs January 11 to March 28, 2018.

Students can learn more about contemporary printmaking by enrolling in one of Scott Reeds' courses this spring semester: Art 202 - Introduction to Printmaking or Art 203 - Experimenting with Monoprint. Both courses are offered on Thursdays at the Lodi campus.
