Please join us for a free public reception on June 14, 2017 from 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM at the Notre Dame Center for Arts & Culture located at 1045 West Washington Street, South Bend, IN 46601.


This group exhibition focuses on the theme ‘Place’ and how the exhibiting artists react to their surroundings. This reaction can manifest in visual stories from tragic events, bring awareness to past and present situations, voice political moods, respond to how our surroundings are exponentially changing, or try to visually educate about environmental issues.

Featuring artists: Jasmine Graf, Heather Parrish, Justin Barfield, and Elena Smyrniotis – members of the Notre Dame Printmaking Department.

A public reception will be held on Wednesday, June 14 from 5:00 – 7:00 PM at the Notre Dame Center for Arts and Culture.  Light refreshments will be served.   The exhibition will remain open to the public through July 19, 2017.

A new book in progress! Cyanotype images featuring deltas of the world, with thread drawing throughout. I was thinking about the currency of transboundary rivers and all that collects at the delta. Aerial views of these land areas provide a vast expanse of what is perpetually in flux.
