Our first exhibit of the new year features the work of printer and artist Bernie Moran. Beginning in 1966, he created an annual calendar for his customers at Moran's Quality Print Shop. The success of the calendars continued a project that lasted until 2004, three years after the shop had closed. This exhibit showcases the calendars printed at the shop, as well as Bernie's fine pen and ink drawings that represent historic sites around the Green Bay area where the print shop was, dating back to 1945. Bernie Moran learned the craft of printing from his father, Frank E. Moran and studied at The Layton School of Art in Milwaukee. He is the father of museum directors Bill and Jim Moran. The exhibit coincides with the 50th anniversary of the first calendar the shop published.
Join us on January 30 from 5 to 7 pm for the gallery reception of this exhibition. This event is free and open to the public.
