Opening Reception for Ctrl-P:
The public is invited to the opening reception of the juried exhibition, Ctrl-P, on Zoom Sunday, January 10, 2pm.
‘Crtl-P’ is the command to print (on Windows PC at least). It is the abbreviated sequence of simple actions that transform a digital image into a physical one. As common as it may be, this ordinary act of creation speaks to the volumus history of image-making, the dissemination of knowledge, and of course, printmaking.
Crtl-P was juried by Liz Spungen of The Print Center to create a collection of work that celebrates excellence and innovation in the diverse fields of printmaking.
Alex Younger, Bill Brookover, Christine Baum, David Love, Karen Hunter McLaughlin, Danuta Muszynska, Hester Stinnett, Eszter Sziksz, Joseph Lupo, Katie Garth, Kit Donnelly, Mark Walley, and Rosalyn Richards.
