LEWISBURG, Pa. — Artist and printer Timothy Berry, owner of Teaberry Press, will present a gallery talk, "The Collaborative Process," Friday, Oct. 29, at 5 p.m. in the Samek Art Gallery, located on the third floor of the Elaine Langone Center at Bucknell.
The talk, which is free to the public, is held in conjunction with "The Intimate Collaboration: Twenty-five Years of Teaberry Press" exhibit and will be followed by an opening reception.
"Timothy Berry is a terrific storyteller," said gallery director Dan Mills. "During the last quarter century, he has worked closely with a remarkable number of noted American artists, including Christo, Claes Oldenburg, Deborah Oropallo, Ed Paschke, and William Wiley, among many others. As a result, he has many insightful, informative and entertaining stories to tell."
Berry learned traditional etching techniques in Europe and moved back to the United States in the mid-seventies. He started an intaglio workshop in Chicago in 1974, then moved to San Francisco Bay area in 1977, where Teaberry Press has been located ever since.
A smaller Teaberry Press exhibition has been exhibited extensively throughout the United States since the early 1990s, at institutions including Nelson-Atkins Museum in Kansas City, University of California at Berkeley, University of Colorado and Wake Forest University.
The Samek Art Gallery exhibition, "The Intimate Collaboration: Twenty-five Years of Teaberry Press," was expanded to include works made since 1992. It may be viewed through Dec. 5.
Berry also is an accomplished painter who has exhibited extensively in museums and galleries throughout the United States, including 20 solo shows since the early 1990s. He is represented by Hosfelt Gallery in San Francisco.
"If you are interested in 20th-century American art, printmaking and stories about artists and art-making, you will want to attend this talk," said Mills.
Admission to the Samek Art Gallery is free. Gallery hours are weekdays 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and weekends 1 to 4 p.m. For more information, call 570-577-3792 or check http://www.bucknell.edu/SamekArtGallery
