MAPC 2012 Outstanding Printmaker: James D. Butler

James Butler, Distinguished Professor Emeritus at Illinois State University, was selected by the Mid America Print Council as the 2012 Outstanding Printmaker.  Butler has been an active practicing artist for over 40 years.  He works thematically, focusing on subjects that are part of his environment, from interior still life work to landscape imagery, quite often finding beauty in the ordinary.

The River Campus Art Gallery at Southeast Missouri State University will showcase an accomplished collection of Butler’s work including paintings, drawings and a variety of printmaking techniques during the Pressing Prints/Pressing Palms: The Entrepreneurial Printmaker conference.  His Artist’s Talk will take place on Thursday, November 1, from 5-6 pm, during the opening reception of his exhibition, from 4-7 pm.
