Russ has finished 2015 by completing four new works. A painting entitled “The Habits of Simulacra” appears on the Painting page. On the Printmaking page, you’ll find three new prints—two digital pieces entitled “A Violent Occupation” and “Jester,” along with a mezzotint called “Senseless."
CURRENT AND UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS
Russ’s newest etching, “House Party For Post-Animate Professionals,” will be included in a national exhibition at the IMAGO Gallery in Warren, RI entitled Printmaking Now. The show will be on view from November 19 through December 6, 2015.
That print, along with “The Professor,” will also be part of Sixty Square Inches, an exhibition of prints 60 square inches or smaller in size. This show, which features work from the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, will run from January 11 through February 20, 2016 at Purdue University’s Ringel Gallery in West Lafayette, IN.
