For Immediate Release: Sept. 6, 2013
BLOOMSBURG— Artist Sage Dawson, who specializes in printmaking, has a show, “Home Sweet Ruin,” which will be the featured exhibit in Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania’s Haas Gallery of Art from Tuesday, Sept. 10 to Friday, Oct. 11.
Gallery admission is free and open to the public. The gallery will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and from noon to 2 p.m. on Saturdays. A closing reception will be held from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 10, with an artist lecture and presentation by Dawson at 3 p.m.
Using a mix of mediums in her work, Dawson examines the history of cartographic rendering: mapping to investigate sublimity, the distinct identities of spaces, and contemporary perspectives of nostalgia. She draws from community projects, radical cartography, and the landscape to document and present lost, abandoned and forgotten sites.
She completed a Master in Fine Arts in printmaking degree from the University of New Mexico. Her work was recently featured in “From Here to There” published by Princeton Architectural Press and “Cosmologies of the Self” in Elephant Magazine.
Bloomsburg University is one of 14 universities in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. BU serves approximately 10,000 students, offering comprehensive programs of study in the colleges of Education, Business, Liberal Arts and Science and Technology.
