84th Members Print Exhibition

The opening for SAGA’S 84th Members Print Exhibition was held September 6 at Syracuse University Art Galleries, Syracuse, NY. The opening was well attended by print lovers and students from the university. There were sixty-seven framed prints on view and they were displayed beautifully. It was great to share the experience with some SAGA members, including Dennis Revitzky, Charlene Tarbox, Eric Goldberg, DeAnn Prosia, John Oaks, and Susan Altman (missing from the photo). The evening also featured openings at the Syracuse University Art Galleries for a Rodin sculpture exhibit and an exhibit of paintings by renowned Japanese artist, Yasuo Kuniyoshi.

In the Print Study Room works were displayed from the Syracuse University Art Collection. Included were prints by past SAGA members such as Isabel Bishop, Edward Hopper, John Sloan and Peggy Bacon, to mention a few. In years past Syracuse University developed its collection with prints from notable printmakers from our organization. Several of our members were also on the Syracuse faculty. The prints in this vast collection are available to faculty and students for instruction and study.

At the conclusion of the Syracuse exhibit, the prints from the SAGA show will travel to other venues, after which the prints will become part of the Syracuse University Art Collection. Thank you to all of the participants.

The exhibit will be at Syracuse University Art Galleries until November 18, 2018.

The show will travel to J. Wayne Stark Galleries at Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas; January 22 – March 10, 2019.

In 2020 the show will travel to Richard E. Peeler Art Center at DePauw University, Greencastle, Indiana; February 3 – June 10, 2020.

We will keep you updated on additional exhibition places.
