Born 1948 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
"I want my art ," Hale observed, to be "a record of where I've been intellectually, emotionally, and physically." Like other lithographs in this series, "Omaha Notes" contains place specific imagery like the Henningson Memorial Campanile Bell Tower on the UNO campus and recurring images such as a candle in the upper left and an open book, which are found for example in "Travel Notes", a lithograph with linocut available through Flatbed Press. A graduate of the California State College at Long Beach (B.A., 1971) and the University of Illinois at Champaign/Urbana (M.F.A., 1973), Hale launched the Guest Artist in Printmaking Program at the University of Texas at Austin where he has taught since 1973.
