The University of North Texas Printmaking is pleased to announce the exhibition of artworks by ten Printmaking BFA Seniors. NOT YET will be on view November 25th to January 2nd. NOT YET: The anticipation of a next step, the uncertainty of finding closure, the anxiety of expectations, the curiosity for the unknown. This exhibition brings together ten senior printmaking majors at the University of North Texas. Each artist explores distinct creative directions filtered through various methodical print processes that embody delayed gratification and anticipation for results. These artists complete this milestone in their education while looking forward to next steps in creative lives.
