Alumni Art Exhibit

This two-person exhibition, that ran from October – December in Lyons Hall’s Vogt Gallery, featured recent works on paper, sculptural installations, and screen prints by two Canisius College alumni (both ’13).

Katharyn Ketter-Franklin is a 27-year-old Canisius College graduate who grew up sketching dragons in Buffalo, New York, and now focuses in minimalist illustration and cut paper artwork. They spend their free time rewatching Evangelion, playing Final Fantasy, photographing cosplayers and creating movie posters for North Park Theatre.

The collection of work on view by Nathan Deganis Librera spans the past two years of his screenprinted illustrations. Reflecting on this installation, he commented, “While developing my style, I have found myself depicting the places I frequent most, illustrating the emotion and memories each place evokes. By capturing moments with small, sometimes hidden detail, I show a personal relationship I have with the spaces. It is a body of work in progress, as there are many more places I find magical enough to put ink to paper.”
