May 25 – June 24, 2012

Opening Final Friday, May 25, Wonder Fair presents The Sundowners featuring new prints by Clinton Ricketts and Andrew Burkitt. The two printmakers and long time collaborators plan to knock the viewers’ socks completely off with a masterful display of technique and skill.

Ricketts and Burkitt both create prints combining etching, chine-collé, and lithography to produce images including, but not limited to: floating Babe Ruth heads, pretty ladies drawn in scary ways, painterly expressions and ugly men in funny hats. Watch the walls of the Wonder Fair explode with shape and color.

This exhibition marks the return of Burkitt to his native Lawrence after receiving an MFA in printmaking at the University of Georgia this year. In the meantime Ricketts, a 2010 MFA grad from KU, has been living in Lawrence making babies and art.
