Cather Professor of Art Karen Kunc's work, "Oscillation Shift" (2015) was selected as the Prix de Print and featured in an essay in the latest issue of Art in Print (Vol. 5, No. 2).

The Prix de Print is a bimonthly competition, open to all subscribers of the magazine, in which a single work is selected by an outside juror to be the subject of a brief essay. This month's juror was David Storey.

"Oscillation Shift" is a color reduction woodcut print, printed and published by Kunc at her Constellation Studios in Lincoln.

In his essay about the print, Storey wrote, "The potential for renewal, continuity and generation is amply implied in the configuration of the image. Irregular, not quite matching horizontal stripes stretch across the whole 'bleed' image and interact with the constellation of circles, like plowed fields clumping up with a ripe round crop."

Kunc has taught at UNL since 1983. She became full professor in 1998 and was named WIlla Cather Professor of Art in 2003. Her work has been shown in more than 350 exhibits nationally and internationally. In 2007, she received the prestigious Printmaker Emeritus Award from the Southern Graphics Council.

She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from UNL and a Master of Fine Arts from Ohio State University.
