    The University of Scranton’s Hope Horn Gallery hosted a lecture entitled “Altered States: Important Prints From The Maslow Collection,” by Ryan Ward, curator of The Maslow Collection, which is currently housed at Marywood University. The Maslow Collection was the featured exhibit in the Hope Horn Gallery until April 12.

    Ward spoke about the history of the collection, saying that in the 1980s, Marilyn and Richard Maslow began collecting American contemporary art, mainly from artists in New York. Artists featured in the collection include, but are not limited to, Francesco Clemente, Julian Schnabel, Robert Rauschenberg, Jane Hammond, Sol LeWitt and Andy Warhol. The collection moved from the Sordoni Art Gallery at Wilkes University in Wilkes Barre, to the Everhart Museum in Scranton in the late 1990s. More recently, in 2008, The Maslow Collection moved to Marywood University.

    Ward also presented a video Andy Warhol’s process for making art pieces, many of which are now well-known.

    The exhibition itself shows the history of the printmaking technique and its changes over time.

    “Is printmaking going to stick around? My guess is yes. You can express so many ideas, formally and conceptually. You name it. Everyone should try it,” Ward said.

    Techniques represented in the exhibit by different artists include woodcut, woodblock, intaglio, etching, lithography, screen printing, collage and mixed media.

     

    The lecture was followed by a public reception at the Hope Horn Gallery.
