|CLIFF GALLERY AT MOUNTAINVIEW COLLEGE
APR 21 // 6-9PM
The Cliff Gallery at Mountain View College Presents “Truths & Lies: Explorations in Human Nature”,
works in the printmaking and book arts traditions created by Laura H. Drapac and Cat Snapp,
April 17–May 4, 2012
Laura H. Drapac’s current prints and drawings use pared-down figurative imagery to explore
psychological complexities of identity. These images isolate narrative fragments that explore
memory of personal experience and how that shapes self image and projected identity.
Cat Snapp’s recent work explores the physical interaction with book and box structures in
abstract sculptural form. The viewer is invited to touch and manipulate these hand-made
compartments, pages, and pieces as a point of meditation on human interaction. The
artist uses stitching, printed patterns, compulsive repetition of shapes, and varied textural
surfaces as one would explore automatic drawing to search emotions, desires and fears
about one’s own personal relationships.
Laura H. Drapac is currently a MFA candidate in Printmaking at the University of North Texas,
where she also teaches drawing and printmaking. She holds a BFA in printmaking and
graphic design from Ohio University (Athens, Ohio). Her recent work has been exhibited
in Florida, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Texas.
