Printmaking in St. Louis Now
March 4, 2016 - May 7, 2016
Printmaking in St. Louis Now showcases the exciting and innovative work being done in St. Louis both by print presses who work with local, national and international artists, and by individual artists living in the St. Louis area. Both traditional and non-traditional approaches are represented. The artists featured in the exhibit investigate a wide range of themes. Many tackle social issues like pollution and the environment, the human condition, and the effect of war. Others choose to investigate the nature and possibilities of the medium itself, producing works that expand upon the vocabulary of printmaking processes.

Showcasing a selection of eight works from St. Louis artist Susan Stang’s recently published book, reAPPEARANCES, this sequence of 52 photographs take the viewer on a journey through the uncanny coherence of the look of the world. Shot using a small digital toy camera with a plastic lens, this series includes photographs taken in a number of countries and cities. Replete with numerous iconic sites and symbols, from the Empire State Building and Tower of Pisa, to Marilyn Monroe, baseball, gondolas and drive-thru wedding chapels, the variety of locations makes even more apparent the serendipitous connections between different places and cultures.
