March 31, 2008

Kerri Cushman, Assistant Professor of Art, and Kelly Nelson, Assistant Professor of Art, had art work in the “Books, Broadsides, Et Alia” print exhibition held March 7-30 at Art6 Gallery in Richmond. Nelson’s works are Green, a small book made of lithographs, and an untitled lithograph print in which she collaborated with Dr. Robert Blackman, Elliott associate professor of history at Hampden-Sydney College, and Cushman’s piece is Venetian Restaurant, a letterpressed book. The invitational exhibition, curated by printmaker Mitzi Humphrey, was held in conjunction with the Southern Graphics Council Conference held March 26-29 in Richmond, devoted primarily to printmaking. Nelson, who attended the conference, also has work in the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Studio School (Girl I, a lithograph, and Omnivore’s Dilemma, a lithograph and screen print) and the Eric Schindler Gallery (the screen prints Dawn and Dress, both made on handmade paper). Those two shows have works from One/Off, a regional Richmond-based printmaking group of which Nelson is a member. • Dissertation research by Dr. Naomi Johnson, Lecturer in Communication Studies, was cited in an article in the March 17 issue of Newsweek magazine. Dr. Johnson’s dissertation research on product placement in teen novels, part of her Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina, was included in the article “Branding For Beginners” by Eve Conant (www.newsweek.com/id/120090).
