      Exhibition: FLOWERING STARS: Prints By Dwight Pogue

      Printmaker Dwight Pogue has been a member of the Department of Art since 1979. "Flowering Stars" celebrates and commemorates his retirement, showcasing the progression of his work in print over his almost 40-years at Smith. Natural forms have preoccupied Pogue since his days as an art student in Kansas. During his time at Kansas State College in the mid 1960s, Pogue often worked in screen printing, hand-cutting stencils to create organic compositions out of flat planes of color. Pogue has allied his interests in botany and environmental protection in his latest works, the “Flowering Stars” of the title, in which flowers are rendered as stylized forms in bright colors. These “superhero” blossoms draw upon the imagery of comic books to present a compelling image of natural survival in an uncertain future. This exhibition is supported by the Louise Walker Blaney, class of 1939, Fund for Exhibitions.
