BU’s Haas Gallery exhibits prints by Sage Dawson

BLOOMSBURG ?Printmaking artist Sage Dawson’s work will be featured in an exhibit titled “Home Sweet Ruin,” Sept. 10-Oct. 11 in Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania’s Haas Gallery of Art.

Gallery admission is free and open to the public. The gallery will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and from noon to 2 p.m. on Saturday. A closing reception will be held from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. Oct. 10, with an artist lecture and presentation by Dawson at 3 p.m.

Using a mix of media in her work, Dawson examines the history of cartographic rendering: mapping to investigate sublimity, the distinct identities of spaces and contemporary perspectives of nostalgia.

She draws from community projects, radical cartography and the landscape to document and present lost, abandoned and forgotten sites.

She completed a Master in Fine Arts in printmaking degree from the University of New Mexico. Her work was recently featured in “From Here to There” published by Princeton Architectural Press and “Cosmologies of the Self” in Elephant Magazine.
