During the fall 2009 semester, a Silkscreen workshop (Art 340-02) was co-taught by Prof Kreydatus and visiting artist Chad Andrews. The course was designed to coincide with Deeply superficial: Warhol's voyeurism at the Muscarelle Museum. With this exhibition, the students had direct access to the work of Andy Warhol, the undisputed master of silkscreen printing. The workshop was funded by the office of The Dean of Educational Policy, The Muscralle Museum, and the Department of Art History. During the intensive three day seminar, the students explored hand-drawn and stencil techniques, photographic process and set-up a rudimentary darkroom for this purpose. It is this first time that this major form of contemporary printmaking has been offered through the department.
Visiting Artist, Chad Andrews, had a solo exhibition Anytown at Andrews Gallery to coincide with the workshop. He received his MFA from University of Pennsylvania and his BFA from Kutztown University. Chad has shown his work extensively in the US and has had 18 solo shows. In addition he has worked as a printer for projects at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Chad's work can be seen at http://www.chadandrews.com.
