A Small Pasture – Drypoints by Maria Victoria Savka
October 19 – November 10, 2015
Sunken Gallery (2nd floor, north side of the building)
Enjoy this small pasture of animals created in the quiet printmaking studio by senior Maria Victoria Savka. These elegant and whimsical studies of animals are a delight. As Maria remarks “Drypoint has made a large impact on my work, it has taught me to understand expression and gesture through line, and value through cross-hatching and timing.”
Maria Victoria Savka is a senior in Illustration and Fine Arts Studio in the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences. She is a local Rochesterian. She strives to create work that is whimsical, visually appealing and unites intricacy and simplicity. Overall, she is intrigued by her environment, studying in a childlike exploration through paper and pen. For more examples of Maria’s work visit http://mariavictoriasavka.com/
The Cary Collection houses one of the most famous printing presses of its time—the handpress used by William Morris, the father of the Arts & Crafts movement, and subsequently by the great American type designer, Frederic Goudy. This exhibit traces the press's 124 years through rare books and artifacts that were printed on it. On view through Fall semester.

Large panoramic paintings to small, enclosed charcoal and pencil drawings make up the current boundaries of Emily’s work. Paint lays in shapes and lines relying on traditional drawing methods to find and hold natural form and space. Within this parameter of paint and pencil you will see figures, often animals, interacting with and ignoring each other, while cognizant of the viewer’s presence.
As a Visiting Assistant Professor in the School of Art at Rochester Institute of Technology, Emily specializes in teaching foundations drawing and upper level undergrad and graduate painting. She received a BFA from the State University of New York at Potsdam and a MFA degree in painting from Kansas State University. In the last four years, Emily’s work has shown in juried and solo exhibitions in New York, Maryland, Kansas, Arkansas, Iowa, Oklahoma and Illinois.
