FREDERICK, Md.—An accomplished artist in print media and fine art will display an exhibit in the Hood College Whitaker Campus Center Gallery from Sept. 10 to Oct. 15.
Jillian Sokso’s exhibit “In the Shadow of the Mountain: Recent prints inspired by the Pacific Northwest” will showcase her recent print and drawing work. Influenced by biographical history, her immediate surroundings of the Willamette Valley and pondering connections between humankind and the natural world, her work is a visual extension of her thoughts.
Sokso is a visual artist working and living in northwest Oregon. A Philadelphia native, she studied printmaking at Moore College of Art and Design and the University of Delaware. She teaches print and drawing media in the department of art and design at George Fox University.
Since 2010, she has worked with Kevin Shook as half of the collaborative team Post Newark, which uses printmaking, artists’ books and mail art as narrative tools. In the studio, Sokso focuses on a variety of print media and works on paper. She works almost exclusively with one-of-a-kind images instead of edition printing.
The exhibit will be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily, and the artist reception and gallery talk is scheduled for Sept. 17 from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
