Serhat Etching
Florida Institute of Technology’s Foosaner Art Museum  presents “A Tribute to Oppler and Impressionism: The Art of Intaglio Printmaking” with Serhat Tanyolacar, Nov. 2 and Nov. 9, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Renee Foosaner Education Center.
              Tanyolacar will teach students the techniques of dry point, image transfer, line etching and aquatint. The class is intended to enrich the
Ernst Oppler: German Impressionist exhibition.
              He said, “As an artist, my intention is always to bring social awareness and social change through provocation and public dialogue by deploying my works strategically to engage viewers in critical inquiry of economic, social and political issues. From Turkey, Tanyolacar studied at Bilkent University there before earning a bachelor’s degree in fine arts from Austin Peay State University in Tennessee and a master of fine arts degree from the University of South Florida. He taught printmaking for the College of Art at the University of South Florida and, over the last decade, his works have been featured in numerous gallery exhibitions.
              The course is for intermediate art students who should have a basic knowledge of drawing and printmaking. The cost is $260 for the general public; $230 for Foosaner Museum members; and free to full-time Florida Tech students.   There is an additional cost for supplies; class size is limited to 10 participants.  
Participants may register online at or by phone with a credit card by calling (321) 254-7782.
