In 2003 I returned to college as a non-Contemplationtraditional student and discovered printmaking. I had no idea what printmaking was at the time and now I don’t know how I’d live without my printing press! I fell in love with printmaking because of the diversity it offers me as well it being a vehicle for me to create artwork that addresses the vast and diverse world of how humans communicate with each other utilizing different forms of technology over the past 100 years.

Gallery 450 hosted it’s 15th student art exhibition which offers the viewer an amazing array of work created by the students who have been enrolled in art courses during the Fall and Spring Semesters of 2012-2013. This exhibition displays our students’ ability to work hard, think critically and be open to new ideas. Creative people are often seen as a being in a a class by themselves-as people with certain “gifts” that the rest of us don’t seem to have. Yet most scientists agree creativity has little to do with talent or skill. Among the traits that creative people have is strong interest in finding and framing unusual problems. In addition there is the ability to take risks-creative peopl function on the edge of their competence; the motivation is not grades, money, or recognition, but simply the desire to learn.
