March 7, 2012 (Notre Dame, Ind.)—The public is invited to enjoy two exhibits now on display in the lobby of the Cushwa-Leighton Library on the campus of Saint Mary's College.

The first is titled “Screen Works: 35 Years of Screen Printing.” It is an exhibition of screen prints (a.k.a. serigraphs or silkscreens) created by Saint Mary's students in art professor Doug Tyler’s silkscreen and photo silkscreen courses over the past 35 years. There are more than 60 works on display. The exhibition displays the versatility of the medium of screenprinting and its affinity for color. Various processes are on display, which document the leading edge screenprint practices employed in the course over the years. Included among the innovative practices are the early adoption of digitally assisted screenprinting technology, water-based print media, and direct stencil printing on glass and other transparent surfaces. The exhibit is on display through Tuesday, March 14.

The second exhibit, on display from March 19-31, is the 5th annual “SMC Open Photo Show.” This exhibition features photos taken by Saint Mary's College students, faculty, and staff. It is an open competition on campus that does not specify or require specific subject matter or techniques. The students’ Photography Club sponsors the competition and exhibit as an opportunity for the Saint Mary’s community to share and display its talents,
