Mark Daniells’ Garden Island III & Stream of Dreams & Lisa Horner’s Muir Beach Overlook

Garden Island III Stream of Dreams Muir Beach Overlook

By Monique

The vibrant tropical, very large Mark Daniels prints brought joy and beauty to our home. The beautifully framed prints were also a conversation piece as I enjoyed letting guests know that I borrowed it from my school library. We had a different one each academic year. One year we had a Lisa Horner vivid linocut of Muir Beach Overlook, a Bay Area nature treasure. I finally asked my husband to take a look at the collection and paired the Daniels print with an intriguing geometrical abstract.

Joy and beauty and all from the library! Can’t wait for Fall to pick out our art for the year.  Thank you Morrison Library Graphic Arts Loan Collection!


Auguste Lepere’s Storm on the Sand Dune & Herlinde Spahr’s Aeneid 7/12

Storm on the Sand Dune Aeneid 7/12

By Anonymous

Among my favorite aspects of living with the prints from the GALC was being able to
look up at them while reading or studying. They offered a continuous point
of reference for my thinking–that is, as an aesthetic pattern that helped
to center my thoughts. Having them over the course of a year also led me to
reflect on why I had chosen these particular prints at the beginning of the
year–it helped me to think about my own personal changes over the course of
two semesters–which in turn changed my perception of the art. All in all,
it was an incredible experience, and I’m very grateful for the GALC! I’ll
definitely be borrowing art again next year.


William J. Faber’s Abstraction

I really enjoyed it, and I am so glad I came to the workshop at the beginning of the semester. I only checked out one piece, but I loved how it added something more to my space without reminding me of other things – it simply just *was*. I definitely plan to check out another piece next year… Thank you so much!
