Artist brings mixed media prints to VSU

The Valdosta State University Art Gallery presents, "Greg Carter: Recent Mixed Media Prints." The exhibit will be on display until Feb. 25. Greg Carter is a mixed media artist who combines painting with printmaking.

Carter's recent works explore history and its connection between people and their culture. He studies how cultures use images to limit and control our understanding and how these images also create personal meaning.

Carter uses materials that create a particular meaning for each painting. The printmaking used in Carter's paintings give the art an original mark. He wants a separation of the finished work from the artist's hands.

Since 1988, Carter has had nine solo exhibitions. He has been in 18 group exhibitions in the U.S. and Western Europe.

Carter earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Atlanta College of Art and also earned a Master of Fine Arts degree at the Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University in New Brunswick, N.J.
