Pushing the Press

Pushing the Press It comes as no surprise that the state of Georgia is rich with innovative, interesting, experimental professionals working in the field of art. This exhibition began taking form with a road trip, as I traveled around the state visiting artists working with prints and printmaking and stepping into their working worlds. Some of the artists included here are true to the traditional techniques of printmaking and the history of the production of multiples but bring a rigorous contemporary consideration to the medium. Others expand printmaking by incorporating 3D objects and urban graffiti. Their differences in subject and approach make for an interesting conversation in the contemporary arts.

My hope is that this exhibition reveals a small slice of the excellence in the printmaking arts that is spread across the state.
