Art during this period was being taught in a way that encouraged the students to experiment and develop their own voice, yet there were still strong influences from teachers to students, among the students themselves, and probably from student to teacher, both in philosophy and style. Nevertheless, there continued to be a strong movement toward a more personal less objective means of expression.

Out of this learning environment, grew life-long friendships and associations that kept some of these artists in touch with others and their work.

This exhibit explores the work of this select group of artists and their provenance as each has developed their own unique style. Threads of common language can often be found between and among them as they grew out of the shared an environment of aesthetic synthesis fostered by teachers and expanded by students.

One can see immediately how Ketchum’s core sense of design in his artwork is related to his work as a Graphic artist. What is not so evident is that which he is expressing, as he mixes numerical symbols with alphabetical and geometric ones, compelling the viewer to examine closely the multiple layers of textures and shapes, all interacting in a field of interchangeable negative and positive spaces, in search of meaning - a reflection perhaps, of Ketchum’s own life journey.
