THE DELIGHTED EYE is an exhibit that will feature works from UW-Madison’s Tandem Press, a publisher of contemporary fine art prints that is a self-supporting unit of the Art Department in the School of Education. Founded in 1987, Tandem Press was designed to foster research, collaboration, experimentation, and innovation in the field of printmaking.
We are delighted to bring Tandem Press to our developing campus gallery space, the Mandelbaum & Albert Family Vision Gallery (we will hold a formal gallery dedication event later this year). PLEASE JOIN US FOR A SPECIAL VERNISSAGE (PREVIEW) ON THURSDAY, APRIL 3RD, 5:30-7:30PM, in the McPherson ERI's new home on the 9th floor of the Wisconsin Institutes for Medical Research, 1111 Highland Ave. There will be a brief discussion by Tandem Press staff at 6:00PM; no RSVP is necessary.
Dr. Alice McPherson will be presented with the Gonin Medal, the oldest and most prestigious medal in ophthalmology, at the World Ophthalmology Congress in Japan in the spring. The Gonin Medal, instituted in 1937, is presented every four years to a recipient chosen by the Board of the International Council of Ophthalmology. As part of this honor, Dr. McPherson presented the associated Gonin Lecture in Lausanne in mid-February.download more info
