Under the Blankets - Printmakers Together presented by the Pittsburgh Print Group

Please join us for a lecture and guided gallery talk by Imin Yeh, Exhibition Project Advisor, that will be presented during the opening, at 7pm on Friday, May 4.  Exhibiting artists as well as the public will have an opportunity to view the exhibit and to interact with some of the finest printmakers in the region.

About Under the Blankets - Printmakers Together

Under the Blankets - Printmakers Together is an exhibition of recent work by 29 Pittsburgh Print Group members and 29 invited printmakers from the tri-state region of Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia. Participating PPG members chose a printmaker from an extensive list of accomplished artists to exhibit alongside the group,

providing an opportunity for members to connect with exceptional printmakers in neighboring rust belt states.  This exhibit will forge a creative dialogue that expands artistic vision and strengthens the ties that bring printmakers, the broader artist community, and the public together.

Under the Blankets – Printmakers Together showcases a broad spectrum of printmaking techniques and approaches that include traditional silkscreen. intaglio, lithography, relief, letterpress, monoprint and monotype,  as well as installation, artist books, zines, and experimental prints that combine video, animation and sound.
Many of the prints in the exhibition focus on contemporary issues and global concerns, while other works explore personal and spiritual themes.
