KEITH ACHEPOHL



Born 1934 in Chicago, Illinois
"Egypt: Day and Night", an exhibition of Keith Achepohl watercolors inspired by architectural monuments, opened at the Joslyn Art Museum in January 1983. "I'm interested in making it seem like you could possibly be in front of something like this, without there ever being something exactly like this; which means really trying to make a more poetic statement about what ancient architecture feels like rather than what it might actually be like," explained the University of Iowa Professor of Printmaking. During his February 1982 residency at UNO, Achepohl worked on a lithograph based on "Egypt: Day and Night, No. 191", 1979-80, a watercolor now in the collection of General Steel Industries, Inc. in Saint Louis. Richard Finch, whose chop stamp is on the lower right of the reverse side, oversaw the printing of the edition. Printmaker April Katz and student Anita Dillman assisted him.
