Framed lithograph printed on Arches Cover White by artist William Bradley. Edition 37/38 from Counterpoints portfolio. Counterpoints is the result of the collective efforts of twenty-five faculty members and thirty-five students within the School of Visual Arts, The Pennsylvania State University. Produced over a three-year period from 1982–85, the portfolio was organized by Robin Gibson, assistant professor of art in the printmaking area, as students proofed and editioned all the prints.
