Evan Summer's artwork has been influenced by his background in science -- from the use of uncommon materials in printmaking to mathematical perspective to depicting scientific specimens. He is a specialist in etching and collagraph, a form of printmaking that uses a collaged printing plate.
For many years he has exhibited his work in major competitions around the world. It has been shown in about 200 group exhibitions. He has had many solo exhibitions including the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, DC (1999-2000), the Reading Public Museum (Reading, PA in 2001 and 2005-06), the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica in Venice (2007) and the Guanlan International Print Workshop in Guanlan, China in 2010.
His work is in numerous public collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, National Gallery of Art, Brooklyn Museum and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Evan Summer is currently Professor of Art at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania where he has taught printmaking since 1984. He received Kutztown University's three most prestigious awards, the Chambliss Award for scholarship in 2008, the Wiesenberger Award for teaching in 2011 and the Sharadin Medal in 2012.

through Sequence and Color
Exploring Series and Sequence:
If you love drawing, color, and composition this class is for you.
Imagine a series of images that are repeated and expanded into a larger, more complex idea. We will learn the basics so you can expand your ideas in print.
Matrix or Key plates can be quickly made using the Silk Aquatint and Carborundum Aquatint techniques. Students then work with transparent and opaque inks, hand-painting, tinted papers, image transfers and more to create outstanding color suites.
