Etchings by Arthur Geisert
Saturday, May 1, 2010-Wednesday, June 30, 2010
Maquoketa Art Experience presented over 70 of Arthur Geisert’s art history–related cartoon etchings, which were created for art calendars over the course of ten years. Geisert practices the 500-plus-year-old technique of copper plate etching. He is an artist and illustrator with many books in print in several languages. His publishing credits include Hogwash, Nursery Crimes, The Giant Ball and String, and Lights Out, many telling stories strictly through visuals. His works have been featured in national publications such as The New Yorker and have been on display in the Art Institute of Chicago, the National Museum of Art in Washington D.C. and the Figge Art Museum in Davenport, Iowa.
