Abstract: This is an etching on paper of a group of five people standing and sitting around a picnic table. Trees and a vague landscape make the background. The bottom left of the piece reads: "The Picnic", the middle-bottom reads: "10/20", and the bottom right reads: "d. ziembo" in graphite. Off white matte with a greyish wooden frame surround the paper. A plastic-like material protects the piece. The back has a white sticker in the top left corner reading: "9. / 'PICNIC' Daniel Ziembo / etching 100.00 / Purchased 1967". A silver sticker in the bottom left reads: "PROPERTY OF / SOUTHWESTERN AT MEMPHIS / NO. 13140". In red marker in the back's upper center: "89.149". Another red mark can be seen above the white sticker in the top left. Cardboard has been taped to back. Traces of writing can be seen under the tape, but not made out. Artist biography: Daniel L. Ziembo is an American artist and graduate of the University of Illinois, Champaign with a B.F.A in painting and an M.F.A. in printmaking, painting, and art history. His first full-time teaching position was at Memphis State University (now University of Memphis) where he taught drawing and design and became the chair of printmaking. He taught from 1967 to 1970. In addition, he taught at the Memphis Academy of Art, as well as other art institutions around the country. In 1970 Ziembo went to Lake County and began teaching at the College of Lake County (CLC) as part of the then-two-person art department. During his tenure at CLC he devised all of the studio art courses apart from painting and the art history and appreciation courses. To keep up with contemporary trends, he developed a media art class as well. He spent the fall of 1998 in Canterbury, England, where he collaborated with printmaking and digital art students and Canterbury Christ Church College. Ziembo retired from teaching in June 1999. His corporate commissions include Abbott Laboratories and divisions of IBM in North Carolina and Minnesota. His most recent one-person exhibitions are "Around Cedar Lake" and "Visual Palindromes," both at Chicago's Roy Boyd Gallery and an exhibit, "Student Life Series," documenting moments of student life at the College of Lake County. Rhodes College has one work by Ziembo.
