Evan Summer

Prints, Drawings and Collages

2009 Exhibit Dates
Aug 25 To Sep 27

Evan Summer's images are imbued with a sense of mystery. Abandoned structures in the landscape are a sign of the human presence and vital activity that no longer exist. Summer also explores form and space using the visual equivalent of "magic realism' created by the intaglio technique and the physical act of mark making. Summer is Professor of Art at Kutztown University in Pennsylvania, where he has taught since 1984. Summer grew up in Buffalo, New York. Before receiving his MFA in printmaking from Yale University in 1975, he earned a BS degree in chemistry. His work is included in many prominent collections nationally and internationally including the National Gallery of Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Corcoran Gallery of Art, Brooklyn Museum, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
