    The Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art (BFSDoArt) is proud to present Sergei Tsvetkov: Recent Work. The exhibition will run until Feb. 26 in the University Gallery at the Center for Art & Theatre, Georgia Southern University.
    Sergei Tsvetkov: Recent Work features a wide range of intaglio prints, as well as works on paper. Heavily influenced by history and geometry, Tsvetkov is well known for his exquisite intaglio prints that a rich iconography developed over the past ten years.

    The Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art will host a gallery talk on Thursday, Feb. 9 at 5 p.m. Visitors will have the rare opportunity to hear Tsvetkov discuss the ideas and imagery that have shaped his work. An artist reception at the Center for Art & Theatre will commence immediately following the gallery talk. The event is free and the public is welcome.
