  3. Fall Art Exhibition to Feature Works By Jeanine Coupe Ryding

    August 10, 2018 - November 10, 2018 @ Elmhurst College

    Artist Jeanine Coupe Ryding is best known for her richly layered, inventive, and often monumental, woodcut prints. Her forms and color record her observations of nature and of daily life, described in her expressive gestural cutting into the wood block plate. Elmhurst College will present “Coda for the Day,” an exhibition of her work, beginning on Aug 15. Her exhibition comprises a selection of 15 large-scale relief prints, 11 artist books and eight collages from the last 10 years. The exhibition is curated by Doug Stapleton, associate curator of art at the Illinois State Museum. “I am thrilled to host this exhibition of Jeanine Coupe Ryding’s work curated by Doug Stapleton,” said Suellen Rocca, curator and director of exhibits at Elmhurst Collee. “Both the curator and artist will discuss the exhibition at the public reception, which should provide great insight into the work.” Ryding's prints and artist books are in museum and private collections throughout the U.S., Europe and Japan.
