Dean Saúl Jiménez-Sandoval, of the College of Arts and Humanities, got to take part today in a tour previewing a big opening on Friday, July 21, in the Phoebe Conley Art Gallery at Fresno State.

Artists Mazatl and Kill Joy unveiled this larger than life image created in conjunction with students in the Summer Arts class called “Printmaking and Installation: Out of the Matrix.”

The illustration represents life and death struggles over water. One salamander is life; the other is death. Detail motifs in the artworks reflect elements of Mexican culture.

Dennis McNett has been another big-name guest artist in the class. Jessica Robles is the course coordinator.

The student showcase for this class will be at 3:45 p.m. Saturday, July 22, in the Phebe Conley Gallery.
