Works by prominent Mexican and American graphic artists will be on display at De Arte Magick Galleria, Easton, beginning Feb. 13. The exhibition, entitled Visiones Graficas, exemplifies cultural and creative exchange and collaboration. It is scheduled to run through March 20.

It is directed by Curlee Raven Holton, associate professor of art at Lafayette College and director of the College’s Experimental Printmaking Institute (EPI), and Karima Muyaes, a painter and graphic artist from Mexico City. A similar exhibit is currently on display at Libreria Pegaso gallery, Mexico City.

An opening reception will be held at De Arte Magick from 5 to 8 p.m. on Feb. 13. There will be a special artists’ reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 27, including presentation by a Mexican children’s dance group.

The works demonstrate many printmaking techniques, including etchings, monoprints, linoleum cuts, woodcuts, and computer-generated images. Included are works of three artists affiliated with Lafayette, Holton, Ed Kerns, professor of art and department head, and Howard Greenberg, a visiting part-time instructor of art.

Other participating Mexican artists include Juan Alcazar, Ivan Gardea, Josafat, Tere Metta, Barry Wolfryd, Claudia Politi, Alfredo Cardona, Armando Eguiza, Mario Martin del Campo, and Juan Manuel de la Rosa.
