A Closer Look: 'Upshot Shelters'

Art Professor and Chair Barbara Foster is one of three renowned printmakers to have their work featured in "Flight Out of Time," a free exhibit on display through March 17 at the Kala Art Institute in Berkeley. Foster's latest series of prints, "Upshot Shelters," draws on images of landscape and architecture to create parallel histories based on fear, security and memory. She meshes photographic images with translucent woodcuts.

Tadayoshi Nakabayashi, one of the other artists featured in the exhibit and a "Living Treasure" of Japan, will give a free lecture at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 28, in Knuth Hall in the Creative Arts building. A demonstration and workshop with Nakabayashi will take place at 2:30 p.m. in room 251 of the Fine Arts building.
