imPRESS is a juried exhibit of impressions from local and regional printmakers working with aquatints, monotypes, lithographs, etchings, woodcuts, linocuts, engravings, and screenprints. The complexity of the process and/or composition, as well as the conceptual ideas grounding the work have been taken into consideration.
The show has been organized around a variety of printmaking techniques and themes. Ideologically grounding the arrangement of the display are underlying conflicts between life and death, order and chaos, fantasy and reality, beauty and ugliness, night and day, solidarity and ephemera.
