Do you ever feel guilty about calling yourself a “printmaker”? Even though your work may have ventured into different directions and other media, you still find that you think like a printmaker. This exhibition aims to present work in all mediums that have been influenced by printmaking and the way in which a printmaker’s mind thinks. Printmaking has many unique features to its long history. It is very labor intensive and a somewhat tedious way to make work. It is all backwards. These techniques and the natural tendency to think in layers also manifest themselves in other objects printmakers create.
Let’s show just how important and adaptable the ideas of printmaking really are. It may at first be deceiving, as printmakers are many times associated with paper, ink and perfect registration. However, after spending time and a little bit of thinking, the ideas of printmaking will start to surface.
Sometimes as a printmaker, we just want to make things.
This exhibition will be held at Whitdel Arts in September & October, in conjunction with Print City 2014, the Mid-America Print Council Conference hosted by Wayne State University. For more information about Print City 2014, visit www.art.wayne.edu/MAPC2014.
