The Prints of Lake Effect Editions at Syracuse University

Aug 01 – Nov 09, 2017
On view at the Palitz Gallery in New York City, this exhibition celebrates 10 years of printmaking in the School of Art’s printmaking studio.

The Prints of Lake Effect Editions at Syracuse University celebrates 10 years of printmaking with a selection of work created by a long list of young artists who have worked at the Syracuse University printmaking studio in the College of Visual and Performing Arts (VPA). Lake Effect Editions is a press entity at the University that publishes works by visiting artists invited by the printmaking professors to work with undergraduate and graduate students each semester. These visiting artists will typically give a public lecture; give critiques to the students they work with; and create an edition of prints with the students, faculty, and staff. Through this engagement with a working artist, Lake Effect and its guiding professors, Dusty Herbig and Holly Greenberg, hope to give students the opportunity to work directly with master print artists from both the academic and professional print worlds to create fine, hand-pulled editions of works on paper. Students work side by side with the visiting artists who share their knowledge of printmaking and the tricks and techniques not taught as part of the regular curriculum in the printmaking intensive, a part of the studio arts programs in VPA’s School of Art.

About Frederick Marvin

Frederick Marvin, born in Los Angeles, was a concert pianist and music scholar. He studied with Milan Blanchet and Arthur Schnabel. Marvin began his concert career at the age of 16 in his hometown of Los Angeles. His New York debut garnered him the Carnegie Hall Award for the best debut of the season. Claudio Arrau became Marvin’s mentor. After several years spent touring around the USA, Marvin moved to Vienna and gave concerts all over Europe and overseas.

Aside from his concerts as a concert pianist, he also accompanied Martha Mödl at her Lieder recitals. He also received international recognition for his work as a music scholar, rediscovering the old Spanish composer Padre Antonio Soler (1729–1783) and Jan Ladislav Dussek (1760–1812) from Bohemia. He published a selection of Soler’s works in diverse musical editions, on records and CDs, likewise with J. L. Dussek’s piano sonatas.

Marvin has been awarded several honors including the “Orden Merito Civil-Comandador” by the Spanish Government as well as the “Medaille de Vermeil-Croix de Commandadeur” by the “Société des Arts-Sciences-Lettres” in Paris. He was visiting professor at the German Phillips University in Marburg. On the occasion of his 90th birthday, Marvin gave a piano recital in Vienna with works by Soler, Beethoven, Schubert, and Chopin.
