Now at the R2 Gallery: PRINT WORKS

Thursday, August 9, from 6-8pm

The PRINT WORKS exhibition highlights how contemporary artists are exploring modern applications of these traditional techniques and incorporating fresh perspectives. Printmaking has been central to humanity’s development, presentation, and communication of ideas for centuries. The curators of PRINT WORKS, Reina Katzenberger and Brian Colley of The Project Shop based in Carbondale, would argue that even in a “digital age”, the power and importance of printmaking is as relevant as ever.

Printmakers include Jennifer Ghormley, Rick Griffith, Chris Hassig, Johanna Mueller, Vanessa Porras, Andrew Rice, and Skye Weinglass.

A preview for Carbondale Arts members and gallery patrons will take place before the opening reception on Thursday, Aug. 9, at 5:30 p.m. with a talk with the artists and an opportunity to see the exhibition before it opens at 6p.m. PRINT WORKS runs through September 7, 2018.
