Pattern Drift: Cityscape
The Kuhlman Gallery at the Ross Art Museum features Pattern Drift: Cityscape, a mid-career survey of art by Philadelphia-based printmaker Amze Emmons. It presents selections from three main bodies of work in which the city serves as background and context for the art. Emmons’ images show his virtuosity as a printmaker and draftsman, as well as inspiration by mechanical illustration, cartoon language, and newspaper journalism. The artist is an Ohio Wesleyan graduate and an associate professor at Tyler School of Art at Temple University.
