Exhibit to feature Joel Feldman's works

by Paula Davenport

CARBONDALE, Ill. -- Elaborately detailed, large woodcuts, sculpture and photographs by artist Joel Feldman will take center stage in a new University Museum exhibit at Southern Illinois University Carbondale.

"Multiple Points of View" includes pieces representing Feldman's creative diversity. Admission is free.

Feldman will talk about his work and his distinguished career at 5:30 p.m. Friday, April 1, and greet museumgoers at a 7-9 p.m. reception.

An SIUC emeritus professor of art, Feldman is known for his signature woodcuts, which depict everything from Aesop's fables to robotics and the history of medical practices.

The display also includes ceramic cups created by numerous artists who contributed to this year's 10th Clay Cup exhibition.

The University Museum is in the north end of Faner Hall. Regular museum hours, which continue through May 1, are: Tuesday-Friday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., and Saturday-Monday, 1-4 p.m.

However, the museum is closed Easter Sunday, March 27.
