  • Artlink: 38TH NATIONAL PRINT EXHIBITION highlights the process behind the medium

    Artlink Gallery

    Recurring weekly on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday until May 11, 2018

    2018-03-30 2018-05-11 Artlink: 38TH NATIONAL PRINT EXHIBITION highlights the process behind the medium <p>March 30 - May 11, 2018<br />Art Champions: Suzanne Galazka and Dick and Mary Lu.<br /><br />38TH NATIONAL PRINT EXHIBITION<br />Although printing for most of us is often as immediate as Ctrl+P, the tradition of printmaking continues on today. This traditional and often times tedious artform has not faded with the dawn of the digital age, instead printmaking has continued to inspire a new generation of printmakers who seek to augment traditional practices with new techniques. These techniques, rolling out an ink slab for a lithograph or wiping the surface of a copper plate etching with the palm of the hand, become ingrained in each artist. This exhibition, in its 38th year, will feature contemporary printmakers working in all printmaking mediums, including intaglio, lithographs, relief, screenprints, monoprints, letterpress, artist books, digital prints and print installations. This year, we are honored to have Liz Maugans, printmaker and co-founder of Zygote Press, as the juror of this exhibition.<br /><br />ABOUT THE JUROR<br />Liz Maugans received her BFA in printmaking from Kent State University and her MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art. As an advocate for artists and the visual arts, Maugans has served as a consultant for many organizations and art business start-ups. She is the co-founder of the Collective Arts Network, a quarterly journal and arts network that works to promote Northeast Ohio artists and organizations to a greater audience through a quarterly journal and collective events. Maugans’ work is included in the Progressive Art Collection, BF Goodrich (Charlotte, N.C.) and The Riffe Center for Government and the Arts, (Columbus, OH) collections. She received an Ohio Arts Council Individual Artist Fellowship in 2000 and a 2005 Artist-in-Communities Grant. She was honored, along with her Zygote co-founder, the Martha Joseph Prize for Distinguished Service from the Cleveland Arts Prize in 2012. In 2013, she was awarded a $20,000 Creative Workforce Fellowship from Community Partnership for Arts and Culture.</p> 300 East Main Street Fort Wayne, IN America/Indiana/Winamac
