The Annual UCSC Outstanding Undergraduate Printmaker’ Award recipient
Exhibition dates: November 4 -15, 2019
Reception with the artist: Monday November 4th 2019, 4:30pm – 6:30pm
at The UCSC Contemporary Print Media Research Center, Elena Baskin Visual Art Studio G111
The Art Department and the Contemporary Print Media Research Center proudly present a solo exhibition of the work of our first Outstanding Undergraduate Printmaker Award recipient, Teralyn Brown, Lived In.
Lived In is an ongoing series of etchings that render scenes and aspects of messy private living spaces such as kitchens, bedrooms, closets, and garages as candid representations of the people who live within them. With the use of photo-based etching processes, integral line drawings, and aquatint, the spaces become compositionally appealing and graphically reveal relatable personal elements that otherwise would be overlooked in everyday life.
Brown transferred to UC Santa Cruz in 2017 from Foothill College in Los Altos Hills with zero knowledge or interest in any kind of printmaking. After spending much time working in the print studio, she realized that her true love was intaglio printmaking. For her, it combines the elements of painting and drawing that she enjoys, but adds a satisfying process and comforting permanence in knowing that more of the image can be made. Having graduated from UCSC with a BA in Studio Art in 2019, she now lives in Silicon Valley, California and continues to seek beautiful messes.
The Annual UCSC ‘Outstanding Undergraduate Printmaker’ Award
With this award, we acknowledge and honor an outstanding undergraduate student whose work as a printmaker demonstrates excellence, dedication and passion.
We also consider how this student has contributed as a good citizen and community member in the UCSC printmaking environment, as we hope this awardee can become a possible future leader in the field.
This award comes with a $400 credit toward material purchases in the UCSC paper store and the privilege of being an artist in residence (for four to six weeks), provided with a personal studio space at the Contemporary Print Media Research Center (CPMRC) during the summer break. In the fall quarter a solo exhibition of the awardee’s work will be presented at the CPMRC.
