Manhattan exhibition to feature Penn College professor’s art

Three works of art created by a graphic design faculty member at Pennsylvania College of Technology will be exhibited in Manhattan during November.

Wood engravings crafted by David M. Moyer, assistant professor of graphic design, have been selected for inclusion in “The Print Effect: Small Works/Big Impact” at Manhattan Graphics Center, 250 W. 40th St., between Seventh and Eighth avenues in New York’s artistic garment district.

David M. MoyerWith an opening reception set for Saturday, Nov. 3, the exhibition dates are Nov. 1-30.

Moyer says he feels “very fortunate to have work from a current series accepted in the show.”

The three wood engravings to be featured are titled “RTG 2,” “RTG 3” and “RTG 4.” The small, labor-intensive works, measuring 5 by 7 inches, each took about 80 hours to create. Moyer says they will eventually become part of an editioned artist book.

RTG 4” a wood engraving by Moyer, has been selected for inclusion in “The Print Effect: Small Works/Big Impact” at Manhattan Graphics Center in November.

Manhattan Graphics Center is a printmaking workshop striving to provide an accessible environment for the learning and practicing of fine art printmaking.

Moyer received a Master of Fine Arts from the Maryland Institute College of Art and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Delaware. His professional organizations include the Society of Wood Engravers, the Wood Engravers’ Network and Fine Press Book Association.

Moyer has had artwork accepted in international and national juried exhibitions.
