Faculty Spotlight Kathy Metaxas
June 24 - November 24
Lower Level Gallery | Kathy Metaxas works in woodblock, collagraph, handmade paper
ACP instructor Kathy Metaxas coaxed out the inner artist of many Communiversity participants during her day-long, community-wide Mono-thon.

Also on view, works by Kathy in woodblock, collagraph (printmaking plates) and handmade paper.
