DeLuce Art Gallery to feature printmaker during November

"Faith, Fact & Denial," Amanda Maciuba

Northwest Missouri State University’s Department of Fine and Performing Arts will feature the work of printmaker Amanda Maciuba as its November exhibit in the Olive DeLuce Art Gallery.

The exhibit, which is free and open to the public, opens with a lecture at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 2, in the Charles Johnson Theater at the Olive DeLuce Fine Arts Building. The exhibit runs through Nov. 27.

A native of the Buffalo, N.Y., Maciuba graduated from the University at Buffalo in 2009 with a bachelor’s degree in visual studies and a concentration in print media. She completed a Master of Fine Arts degree in printmaking with a minor in intermedia from the University of Iowa this year.

In August she began serving as the printmaking artist-in-residence at the Lawrence Art Center in Lawrence, Kan., and she was artist-in-residence at Iowa Lakeside Laboratory in Milford, Iowa, last year.

She has shown her work nationally in “Somewheres & Nowheres: New Prints 2014/Autumn” at the International Print Center in New York and Minneapolis’s Highpoint Center for Printmaking’s annual exhibition, “Stand Out Prints,” among other juried exhibitions. She also has shown her work in the Buffalo, N.Y., area and exhibits regularly in eastern Iowa.

Maciuba draws her inspiration from growing up in western New York while incorporating printmaking, papermaking, drawing, installation and book arts in her work.

“I’m interested in examining the architectural and economic decisions that are made by communities to occupy the urban, suburban, rural and natural environments that surround them,” Maciuba says in her artist statement. “My work is concerned with the effects purposeful human actions, alongside time and acts of nature we cannot control, alter the current landscape and others’ later experiences and decisions within that landscape. I am fascinated by the shared experiences of the ignored spaces in our everyday environment, as well as the specific locations in which we choose to spend our time.”
