The Kent State University School of Art Galleries is pleased to announce an exhibition of sculpture by Kent State alumnus Eric England, Imprint. The Imprint exhibition opens on Aug. 31 and runs through Sept. 24 at the Downtown Gallery. A reception will be held on Thursday, Sept. 1, from 5 -7 p.m.
Eric England received a B.F.A. in sculpture from Kent State in 1987. He has been teaching art at Howland High School in Warren, Ohio, since 2002. England’s current body of work, which he refers to as Talismans, combines comic book superheroes with ancient African carvings and American Indian totems to explore the human struggle between the body’s physical limitations and the mind’s infinite imagination.
