Please join us for a public lecture by the artist Rimer Cardillo at the opening reception of “Quiet Cruelties: Prints, Sculpture, and Unique Works on Paper” at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7, at the University Art Museum (FA-213).

Cardillo is a professor of art at SUNY New Paltz whose exhibition draws on four decades of his artistic production using ambiguous printed imagery to critique invidious violence that underscores oppression. His work combines a great range of printing methods and techniques, from woodcut, engraving and etching to aquatint, mezzotint and silkscreen to create enigmatic visual statements that feature insects rather than individuals. The exhibit will remain on display through March 23. Admission to the museum is free. For directions and museum hours visit
