DescriptionThe arrival of printing changed the world, allowing increased literacy and knowledge through rapid spread of text. Printmaking techniques were inevitably adopted by artists and continues to survive, evolve, and intrigue. “Printmaking in Kentucky" is a juried group show exploring traditional and contemporary forms of the process. By focusing on Kentucky artists, we seek to celebrate our state’s rich heritage and excellence in the arts.

Anthropomorphic rabbits loiter outside a nightclub in Georgina Kleinhelter’s narrative mezzotint. A line of war planes fly over a vivid abstract backdrop in Jackson Taylor’s lithograph, “Swarm City.” Debbie Shannon creates one of a kind, vibrant surfaces through the use of paper marbling. Printmaking can also be carried out without ink, as seen in Jacqlynn Marie Hamilton’s blind embossing series, “White Rabbit.” Although this exhibition focuses on the art of printmaking, there is much diversity evident in both technique and subject matter among the 18 artists included. Like many means of creating, the process is just as important as the finished work. The processes utilized here include etching, woodcut, collagraph, mezzotint, intaglio, lithograph, blind embossing, monotype, and paper marbling.

There are even works in the show utilizing printmaking methods juxtaposed with other art forms to create intriguing mixed media works. Amy Chase is exhibiting two abstract ceramic sculptures that incorporate the use of silkscreen. An etched image of a young nestling is printed overtop a cyanotype (an alternative photographic process) in Adrian Rowan’s work, “Nest.” Carole Winters combines hand-written text and found-object assemblage stitched to her engraved print, “Menifee County III.”

Subject matter and artistic styles are also greatly varied in this exhibition. Some reoccurring themes include human figures, animals, abstracts, and landscapes. Woodworker, Ryan Goff uses the earliest printmaking technique to create his woodcut, “Cult Monk.” This work brings to mind the woodcut prints of the German Expressionists in its graphically bold rendering and stylized form. Pursuing degrees in both printmaking and biology, Sarah E. Fischer explores animal subject matter through a scientific perspective. “Specimen Drawer No. 1” places the viewer above an open drawer filled with deceased bird specimens, each tagged around the ankle with identification. Elizabeth Foley is showing two abstract prints, each of which is full of life and symbolism through shape and color. Foley combines the process of woodcut and collagraph in both “Above the Busy” and “Wish.” Jane Morgan is exhibiting a nature-inspired lithograph in “Prelude to Spring.”

“Printmaking in Kentucky” will run from September 30th – October 29th in conjunction with the 2016 Mid America Print Council Biennial Conference, October 5th-8th. The Opening Reception will be held at Kaviar Gallery on September 30th 6-9PM during the F.A.T Friday Trolley Hop! An Open House will be held in conjunction with the 2016 MAPC Biennial Conference, October 8th 2-5PM.
