Art New England

 

"The posters in this handsomely mounted exhibition [at Karl Drerup Art Gallery at Plymouth State College], curated by Catherine Amidon in cooperation with the International Poster Gallery, incorporate a variety of subjects: the nation's workforce, the Red Army, the threat of capitalism, foreign intervention, famine, reform, education, and the economy. Cheap, plentiful, often shocking, the posters feature strong lines, powerful diagonals, extreme foreshortening, and elements of photomontage."
