Gopalan Art gallery begins fall season with printmakers exhibit

TERRE HAUTE — Gopalan Contemporary Art will begin its fall season with an exhibition of two printmakers. Today’s First Friday reception will feature artists Susan Goldman and Sujata Gopalan.

Goldman, a master printmaker who owns and operates Lily Press in Washington, D.C., is showing new works which include large scale woodcuts, some of  which are combined with monoprint techniques.

The result is a series of prints which show a depth of color combined with masterful technique. Goldman attended Indiana University for her bachelor’s degree in printmaking and then attended Arizona State University where she received her master’s in printmaking. She worked as a master printmaker at Pyramid Press before opening her own printmaking studio in Washington, D.C.

Gopalan also received a bachelor’s in printmaking from Indiana University and then went on to Louisiana State University for her master’s degree. She taught printmaking and drawing at Southeastern Louisiana University before returning to Indiana. She opened Gopalan Contemporary Art in Terre Haute in 2008.

Gopalans’ new work includes prints, paintings and drawings that revolve around a theme of childhood objects. A series of prints include etching and monoprint techniques, as well as a relief process referred to as collograph. The result is a body of work which is diverse in media, yet unified by a prevalent theme.

An opening reception for the artists is planned from 7 to 9 tonight at the gallery at 9 S. Seventh St. The reception is part of the Terre Haute galleries’ First Friday event and is free and open to the public.
