Sanctuary Series – Bill Brookover: A Journey from Architecture to Printmaking
Artist and Fleisher faculty member Bill Brookover will lead an engaging conversation about his journey from West Texas to Philadelphia and from architecture to printmaking. Fleisher played a key role in Bill finding his calling as a printmaker, his third career. He’ll describe how preparation, decisive choices, and serendipity guided his transition.
A West Texas native, Bill studied art and architecture at Rice University, historic preservation at Columbia University, and printmaking at Fleisher. Based in his training in design, his prints explore design, color, texture, and geometric structure.
Bill has taught printmaking at Fleisher since 2010 and in 2014 began leading tours of Hidden Print Collections. He has served as Independent Curator for Eugene Feldman Offset Lithographs, Print & Picture Hallway Gallery, at the Parkway Central Library and is a member of Fleisher’s board of directors. He is a member of Second State Press, The Print Center in Philadelphia, InLiquid, The Main Line Art Center, Philadelphia Center for the Book and DaVinci Art Alliance. He is represented by the Bluestone Gallery in Philadelphia.
The Sanctuary Series was developed in support of Fleisher’s mission to make art accessible to everyone. The series provides low-commitment learning experience for our creative community to explore its interest in the arts. Supporting and supplementing Fleisher’s regular class and workshop offerings, Sanctuary Series events range from artist talks, film screenings, musical and dance performances, as well as hands on workshops. The Sanctuary Series is free and open to the public.
