This summer, printmaking students in the Department of Visual Arts & Art History at Florida Atlantic Univeristy worked closely with resident artist John Hancock, one of the Amazing Hancock Bros. The dynamic duo comprises of John and Charles Hancock, who are masters in woodcuts, silkscreen, and mixed-media printing.  
During his residency, students had the opportunity to learn techniques and skills in concept developments and execution while also exploring narratives for expression. In Babylon Superman, Hancock is providing his audience with “nocturnal transmissions via kosmik vibrations, dead poets, scotch, and chili dawgs.”

Common Ground: Imagined Landscapes Through Design

Schmidt Center Gallery 

On View: August 1 – September 21, 2024  
Opening Reception: August 29, 2024, 4:30-8:30 pm  

Landscapes inherently possess tension when contrasted with human activity. Curated in collaboration with the Shenkar Design Research Center, Common Ground explores three iconic landscapes of Israel as seen by designers. The selected artists lead us on a journey through time and space, juxtaposing contemporary and historical artworks in the Israeli grove, city, and desert. Each habitat invites us to explore the balance between humans and nature through tactile textile works, photography, and graphic design.   

Rock, Paper, Chisel: Mixed Media Treasures from the FAU Collection 

Ritter Art Gallery 

On View: August 1 - September 15, 2024 
Closing Reception: September 12, 2024, 4:30-8:30 pm 

Showcasing the intriguing variety of FAU's art collection, the Ritter Art Gallery unveils some of its more unusual holdings in Rock, Paper, Chisel. This eclectic mix of contemporary fine art, including glass, fiber, ceramics, painting, sculptures and prints is typically kept in restricted storage due to its fragility. This curatorial endeavor is part of a broader conservation initiative to evaluate and digitize the university's collection, aiming to enhance public accessibility through online platforms.
