Huck’s prints are heir to a long tradition in printmaking of representing the grotesque in a manner that is both provocative and darkly comical. His exhibition focuses around the presentation of the artist’s woodblock prints, which are influenced by such artists as Durer, Burgkmair, Hogarth and Posada.

He will present an Artist Talk from 2 to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 14, in Spiva Art Gallery. It will be followed by a reception from 3 to 5 p.m.

Huck will offer a demonstration of his work from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday at the Focal Point Gallery, 521 Main St., during Third Thursday.

The events are free and open to the public.
