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.
The Glass Currents Inaugural Exhibition will be hosted at the Richmond Art Center. Juried by the Glass Alliance of Northern California and Association of Clay and Glass Artists, this Inaugural Exhibition at the Richmond Art Center will present a contemporary survey of glass art. With the American Studio Glass Movement having early roots in the Bay Area, this exhibition serves to honor this region’s place in history, while providing a contemporary view of where glass art has evolved to, today. This call is for a juried fine art exhibition showcasing the best in emerging and established artists, who meet the regional eligibility requirements, and create work primarily from glass.
Our annual open non-juried showing of our member artists takes place every summer. This year our Spotlight Artists are Marisa Burman, Katie Hawkinson, Jan Langdon, and Gordon Morris.
We invite all Richmond Art Members to submit art to the exhibition by May 22. The submission form is here.
