February 11 @ 11:00 am - February 12 @ 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 11:00am on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until March 6, 2019
The Lore Degenstein Gallery at Susquehanna University will launch its first exhibition of 2019, Sue Coe: A Retrospective, with an opening reception on Jan. 26 at 7 p.m. The exhibition runs through March 6. All gallery events are free and open to the public.
Sue Coe is a contemporary English artist noted for her intensely political graphic illustrations and activism.
Born in 1951 in Staffordshire, England, Coe grew up near a slaughterhouse, which helped instill a lifelong passion for animal rights activism. This political sensibility characterizes Coe’s work, which often explicitly makes animal rights and other social issues its central subject.
Coe uses painting, printmaking and a realistic drawing style to depict cruelty against animals, sweatshops, prisons, AIDS, war and anti-capitalism throughout her work.
The Lore Degenstein Gallery, located in the Charles B. Degenstein Campus Center, is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. It is closed during university recesses. Call 570-372-4059 for an appointment when classes are not in session.
