Known as a commercial printing method, lithography became popular with the Pop artists of the 1960s, but its influence and importance extended far beyond the Pop Art movement. Two workshops, Universal Limited Art Editions and Tamarind, were critical to the lithography revival and its spread beyond Pop Art imagery.

Finally, the exhibition considers the role of hands in designing objects for hands to hold or use.

Movers & Shapers-Combines, Tractors, and Swathers, 11:00 am – 5:00 pm, OSU Museum of Art, 720 S. Husband St. Movers and Shapers: Combines, Tractors, and Swathers presents large-scale paintings and related study drawings by mid-career Los Angeles artist Karen Carson depicting the machines that work behind the scenes to keep our supermarkets stocked and silos full. Carson has lived part-time in rural Montana for the past decade and has explored in her work new ways of dealing with the grandeur of that natural setting. Known for her fearless experimentation, she has created various series that deal with some of the most powerful forces of nature, including forest fires, waterfalls, and windstorms. She turns here to these gigantic motorized masters of nature that have obviated much of the hands-on labor of farming. With virtuosic brushwork and vibrant color, she celebrates these hulk-like machines, relishing their lumbering bodies, wide stances, and geometric appendages. With a sly sense of humor, she humanizes their forms, sublimating their aggressive power so that they appear as friendly, almost sensual giants. For more information call 405-744-2780.
