Keene, NH, August 26, 2013: Keene State College’s Thorne-Sagendorph Art Gallery will display artwork published by Universal Limited Art Editions (ULAE) in an exhibit titled Pressing Print: Universal Limited Art Editions 2000-2010.

ULAE collaborates with artists to publish small edition prints and artists' books. Pressing Print is an examination of ULAE’s ongoing commitment to innovative approaches and techniques in contemporary art making. The exhibit opens with a reception that is free and open to the public on Thursday, September 19 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the gallery. Pressing Print will be on display until December 8, 2013.

“Examining the innovative approaches to contemporary art that are supported by Universal Limited Art Editions provides a better understanding of some of the most compelling pieces we see today,” said Maureen Ahern, director of Thorne-Sagendorph Art Gallery at Keene State College. “Works by artists such as Robert Rauschenberg, Carroll Dunham and Jasper Johns are truly incredible to view – we are proud to bring these works to our community.”

Pressing Print: Universal Limited Art Editions 2000-2010 was organized by the Syracuse University Art Collection.

Also on display at Thorne-Sagendorph Gallery is an exhibit titled The Expressive Voice: Landscape of Emotion, which showcases works by artists known for their distinctive blend of visionary painting that includes dark humor, religious mysticism, and social commentary.

Expressive Voice will be on display from August 30 through November 17, 2013. This exhibit was organized by Danforth Art of Framingham, MA.

Katherine French, director of the Danforth and curator, will present a walk through of the exhibit at 6:15 pm during the reception on September 19. For more information on The Expressive Voice, visit: our website.

About Thorne-Sagendorph Art Gallery

Thorne-Sagendorph Art Gallery began its collaboration with Keene, surrounding communities and Keene State College when it opened in 1965. The Thorne’s mission is to equally serve all constituencies by presenting high quality exhibits for education and appreciation. The Thorne collection has two focuses: One focus is collecting and preserving artwork by artists from the 19th century Dublin Art Colony as a heritage for the people of the Monadnock region. The second focus is collecting work of high aesthetic and educational value to enhance the teaching of Keene State College faculty, and for the enjoyment of students and all visitors to the Thorne.
