About the Exhibit
“Subarashi” is a teaching exhibition that informs viewers about the processes of hydroprinting and marbling, and the wide possibilities this media engenders. The works in the exhibit portray how artists think, experiment and change. The exhibition includes interactive elements, such as marbled papers that are translucent and able to be juxtaposed by viewers toward different effects.

About the Artist
Dr. Tapley said, “I view marbling as a means to an ends—a technique with applications to fiber art and sculptural work. I have honed many historical and cultural methods of paper marbling and these allow a broad range of possibilities. This exhibition includes selected works that represent different ways of treating marbling both in process and presentation.”

Tapley, professor of art education at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, North Carolina, has an MFA in printmaking from the University of Alabama, and a PhD in Art Education from the University of Iowa. She enjoys plain old printmaking with a printing press and its experimental possibilities, and has traveled to five continents and sixteen countries to research various visual art interests. Dr. Tapley has also completed over 45 murals and 25 large-scale installations in galleries/museums nationwide.
