Original Prints
Are Exhibited
In Alumni Hall
Work Of American Artists
Is Shown By Ann Arbor
Art Association
Etchings, woodcuts and lithographs
of the American Artists Group which
are now on display at Alumni Mem-
orial Hall under the auspices of the
Ann Arbor Art Association show a
wide range of subject matter and
contrasting techniques, officials of
the local association say.
There are 53 original prints which
have never been exhibited before, and
they are works that have been creat-
ed during the past year as a part of
the American Artists Group pro-
gram of making the best contem-
porary art available to the public.
The artists who have made the
works are well known throughout this
country and are said to have created
masterpieces which have formed val-
uable parts of the permanent col-
lections of the museums in the United
States, officials said.
There are examples of conservative
and modern art, of realistic, ab-
stract and, surrealist art in the col-_
lection. Some works are landscapes,
humourous and genre pictures, and
others are for those who like sailing
and other outdoor sports. In as-
sembling the present exhibit, it was
said, the American Artists Group
made a deliberate attempt to bring
together representative artists of
every school and style of art.
The exhibit will be in Alumni
Memorial Hall until Sunday. The
display is planned to approximate a
complete cross-section of the whole
range of contemporary American art.
