Pushing the Press: Contemporary Printers Redefining the Medium

January 19 - April 29

The body of work in this exhibition serves as an example that there are many printers today who go outside the medium and may also use it to display atypical subject matter.

Printing is one of the oldest forms of art. Woodblock printing was the first to develop as early as 220 A.D. in China. From this point, printing evolved into many forms, most memorably by way of the invention of the printing press around 1440 that served as the most efficient way to educate the masses through newspapers and books.  And yet, in all this time, the medium is still relevant, but more important, artists are finding new ways with which to use old methods.

This exhibition showcases many artists who are reshaping the old ways into new on various levels.

This body of work serves as evidence that traditional printing is far from obsolete, but it will continue to be used and expanded by artists looking for ways to express themselves. 

Opening reception: Thursday, January 19: 5 – 7 p.m.
