Lebanon Valley College’s Suzanne H. Arnold Art Gallery will present Intersection of Art and the Printed Word: Selections from the Permanent Collection July 3 through August 9. The opening reception for the exhibition is Thursday, July 2 from 5 to 7 p.m.

“Intersection of Art and the Printed Word” discusses the relationship between art, the printed word, and culture during the rise of print publication in the late 18th through 19th centuries. The American section will also examine the enduring impact of this phenomenon as it extends to book illustration in the 20th century.

The improvement of publishing technologies in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, as well as the rise of the middle class, created new opportunities for authors and illustrators. As the general public became better educated, there was a larger audience for newspapers, magazines, and novels. Books with illustrations were published as bound novels and in serial format. Magazines and newspapers provided publicity opportunities for artists who wanted to get their work before a wide audience. Illustrated publications served as a pedagogical tool for illiterate audiences. The press was used by the government and its dissenters as a tool for propaganda. The collaboration between illustrators and writers also helped foster the growth of a national identity for all three of the countries covered in this exhibit: England, the United States, and France.

LVC art & art history major Cate Tershak ’16 assumed the role of curator for this exhibition. She is currently working as an intern for the Suzanne H. Arnold Art Gallery, where she is conducting research and managing exhibits. Recently, Tershak presented her research on Frida Kahlo's symbolic use of hair in her artwork at the Central PA Collegiate Art History Symposium at Bucknell University. Following graduation, she plans to enter a graduate program to study Art History.

Gallery summer hours are Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and by appointment for groups. Schools and other organizations are encouraged to contact the Gallery for a guided visit. Additional information is available at www.lvc.edu/gallery, gallery@lvc.edu, or 717-867-6445.
