If “Los Disparates” is near, can Halloween be far behind? An exhibition of print series by one of the greatest artists of all time — Francisco Goya (1746-1828) — and 20th-century artist Federico Castellon, both of whom used dark imagery to illustrate the human condition, is on exhibit in the Windgate Gallery of the Center for Humanities and the Arts at UA Pulaski Tech.
Goya’s “Los Disparates” etchings are of edgy, dreamlike scenes, featuring the image of death and scenes of misery both vague and explicit, including “Feminine Folly” and “Merry Folly.” The series of etchings was his last. Castellon’s prints illustrate Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Masque of the Red Death.” According to UAPTC, both artists were inspired by what it says is a uniquely Spanish idea: That of the duende, the goblin/trickster.
Printmaker Neal Harrington, professor of art at Arkansas Tech University, will take part in the opening night program, to be held 6-8 p.m. Oct. 11 in the CHARTS lobby. Timothy Allen, organist for St. Mark’s Episcopal Church and a member of the faculty at Hendrix College, will provide the music.
The traveling exhibition of 38 prints was organized by the Kalamazoo Institute of the Arts in Kalamazoo, Mich.
