Blake in the Heartland Exhibit

blake wine tastingI’m happy to announce that Associate Professor of Art Lee Fearnside and I are gearing up for the exhibit “Blake in the Heartland” at the Diane Kidd Gallery at Tiffin University. We’ll be hosting events the last week of March and first week of April in support of an exhibit of facsimiles of Blake’s works and Blake-inspired art by local artists. Blake scholar Dr. Michael Phillips will be demonstrating Blake’s printmaking methods and lecturing on the Songs of Innocence and of Experience and his experience curating Blake exhibits at the Tate, the Met, the Petite Palais in Paris, the University of Toronto, and most recently at the Ashmolean at Oxford. If you would like Dr. Phillips to visit your institution while he is stateside, email me at jamesrovira at gmail dot com.

More details will be forthcoming as the date approaches.
