The satirical wit and vivid imagination of Wisconsin-based printmaker Warrington Colsecott will be featured in this exhibition. Internationally known for his innovative techniques, Colescott has applied his unique interpretative skills to historical and contemporary subject matter ranging from the Lewis and Clark expedition to the on-field dominance of the Green Bay Packers. His work often explores themes centered on politics, the follies and horrors of war, abuse of power and wealth and relationships between men and women. The exhibition also includes Colescott’s complete “History of Printmaking” series, in which he blends historical information on the development of printmaking techniques with his own humorous interpretations of events. The Wriston Art Center galleries are open Tuesday – Friday 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.; Saturday – Sunday noon – 4 p.m.; closed Mondays. Free and open to the public.
