Impressionable: Print exhibition @ Real Art Ways

Artist-curator John O’Donnell has organized a massive print show in Hartford, Connecticut: “Multiple Impressions,” the Fifth Connecticut Printmakers Invitational, on view at Real Art Ways in Hartford through April 21, 2016. The roster includes many luminaries from the Connecticut art and printmaking scene, so I’m proud to have a couple of my new etchings included. Pipes (image at top), is one of the prints produced with Laurie Sloan during my recent residency at Counterproof Press on the campus of the University of Connecticut.

O’Donnell selected 23 artists who use a variety of printmaking processes, from traditional–intaglio, relief, lithography, and screen printing–to experimental approaches that include textiles, sculpture, and installation. “Their works address a variety of topics concerning design, representation, and abstraction,” O’Donnell writes in his statement for the show. “Some artists in this exhibition are painters who make prints, while others are designers who use printmaking to execute their ideas.” If you’re in Connecticut, please stop by and see the show.

Artists include: Michael Angelis, May Babcock, Sharon Butler, Julia DePinto, Paul DeRuvo, Jenni Freidman, Brad Guarino, James Kimura-Green, Ryan King, Nathan Lewis, AJ Masthay, Guz Mazzocca, Sarah Mikolowsky, Kelsey Miller, Jeff Mueller, Neil Daigle Orians, Hartford Prints!, Thomas Radovich, Nicolas Ransom Kennedy, Thomas Reilly, Jacob Rochester, Sydney Roper, Stephanie Sileo, Tim Wengertsman, and Mark Zurolo.
