CSULB Animation Professor Aubry Mintz will be on the Turner Classic Movie network to showcase a festival of Rare Animation on Sunday, April 9th from 5-9pm. Alongside host Ben Mankiewicz, Prof. Mintz and Ms. Ellen Besen will be guest presenters of National Film Board of Canada’s Animation films from the forties until the end of the nineties. “Norman MacLaren, Caroline Leaf and Richard Condie are just a few of the animators who’s greatest works will screened. Over the course of the last year, Aubry and Ellen viewed and researched many titles from the NFB archives to create this 4 hour package which includes the work of more than 30 directors working in a variety of techniques.” As Professor Mintz says, “In our research we found wonderful backstage stories for many of our films, more than could be covered in the interview sections of the evening itself… [but] Viewers can take advantage of this additional material – production anecdotes, thoughts on content, notes on historical context – we will be posting some of our favorite bits over the next few weeks on our Facebook page.” Please tune in and enjoy!

CSULB Prints Professor Roxanne Sexier was part of an exhibition Ink and Clay 42, at the W.Keith & Janet Kellogg University Art Gallery, Cal Poly Pomona. Two of her relief prints (on top), respectively titled: “Black Pool,” and “The Bardo” won the Juror’s Choice Ink Award. A third woodcut print, titled “Susurrus” was also exhibited in the exhibition.
Professor Sexauer also has been an artist-in-residence at the Skaftfell Center for Visual Art in Seydisfjordur, Iceland. The theme of the residency was entitled “Printing Matter,” and it was organized by Danish Graphic Designer Ase Eg Jorgensen and held in conjunction with the Technical Museum of East Iceland, as an International exploration of artist’s books and book structures. The folded book structure (on bottom) is titled “Strandartindur,” and was created at the residency.
In April, Prof. Sexauer will be working at the Lily Press, in Rockville Maryland, a fine art printmaking atelier, owned and operated by master printer Susan Goldman. While there, she hopes to edition several relief prints based on various sketchbook images which explore pattern and chance operations.
Congratulations Professor Sexauer!

CSULB Art alum Kendell Carter will be having a solo exhibition entitled Kendell Carter: Marvel at Edward Cella Art+Architecture. The exhibition will open on March 11 and will run until May 6, 2017.
Marvel is an exhibition of cast paintings, sculpture, site-specific installations, and guided meditation by Kendell Carter. “Mr. Carter’s sustained commitment to observing and exploring race, gender, history, and consumer culture manifests in a studio practice that pushes beyond that of a black artist making art about politics, and towards one that acknowledges the rapidly integrating nature of today’s visual culture.” From installations that evoke the legacy of the Jim Crow era to today, to cast paintings with the word “LOVE” scrawled backwards in graffiti, “Carter’s masterfully orchestrated installations connect scale, form, texture, and surface with contemporary socio-cultural realities and historically rooted gestures.” For one installation the gallery floor will feature a large cast latex sculpture of the state of North Carolina which will serve as a mat for a series of meditations on the wrongful shooting of Keith Lamont Scott by Charlotte Mecklenburg police, and the controversy following the North Carolina “bathroom bill.” These meditations will be guided by licensed practitioners T. Dorje Immanuel, Andrea Yarbrough-Morris, and Mackala Lacy. The public is invited to participate in these guided meditations on March 25, 2017 at 2pm. Furthermore, the artist will have a gallery conversation with curator Dr. Jill Moniz will take place on April 8, 2017 at 4pm.
