Pressing On—Contemporary Printmaking

Pressing On—Contemporary Printmaking offers the opportunity to see the most contemporary explorations in contemporary printmaking.  In a time when things happen with the push of a button, the hands-onmixing materials and process – the transformation from plate to print—is still magical.  We invite the private view, the personal voice, and the public position: all current trends in printmaking as artists keep Pressing On.

The juror for Pressing On is Karin Breuer, Curator in Charge of the Achenbach Graphic Arts Foundation of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. In a career spanning decades, Karin Breuer has mounted exhibitions ranging from the scholarly depths of Japanese woodblock prints and their influence onWestern art to the archives of local art presses and a flowering of California printmaking and reveling most recently in the idiosyncratic, humor-infused screen prints of Ed Ruscha.

Glass Currents

Glass Currents is a national exhibition showcasing talent from emerging and established glass artists, with a connection to California by birth, residency, or a degree from an accredited institution.  This regional focus is meant to celebrate the significant role of California artists, and the Bay Area, in the early roots of the Studio Glass Movement.  It also provides a contemporary survey of glass art, showcasing a diverse range of techniques that exemplifies where glass has evolved to today.
