The University Hospital Art Program hosts an artist's reception featuring Janet Yagoda Shagam on Friday, Feb. 22 from 4 to 6 p.m. The exhibition, titled "Marks and Remarks," opened recently at The Jonathan Abrams MD Art Gallery, Fifth Floor, Ambulatory Care Center, University of New Mexico Hospital.

In 2002, after a nearly 35-year hiatus, art came back into Shagam's life. With a focus on printmaking over the past decade, Shagam used multiple print media such as lithography, copperplate etching, relief (woodcut) and collagraph. Prints, made from odd matrices such as milk cartons and flatten road detritus, are a distinctive feature of her work.

Shagam's prints have been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. In 2010, she was juried into a group show at the Smithsonian Institute Ripley Gallery. In 2011, Shagam received an Albuquerque 1 percent for the Arts grant to produce an edition at the Tamarind Institute and also participated in two-month art residency in Venice, Italy.

The exhibition will be on display through Friday, April 5, 2013.
