Event: Press Gang

MAY 02, 09 | 8:00 - 10:00pm

Info: The eight individuals in Press Gang have been exploring the art of printmaking for decades, both as professional artists, and as printmaking instructors. Their styles are as radically different from one another as is their subject matter. Yet one thing that all of them have in common is a strong graphic sensibility. From the hard-edged typographical art of Chris Forsythe, to the soft lines and lush textures of Faye Passow's lithographs, the pictures in Press Gang seem to leap right off the wall.

We Don't Do Clever Exhibit at First Amendment - April 25

Place:First Amendment

Event: We Don't Do Clever

April 25, 09 7:00 - 10:00 pm Info: Can collusion be subconscious? Maybe coalesce is the right word....is avoiding a clever show title in itself, clever? An event like this always begs a few exploratory questions. For years, Twin City artists Jennifer Davis and Jake Keeler have worked the local scene, unknowingly huge fans of each others work. The opportunity to show together finally came along and they jumped at the chance. While both continue to carve out their unique and developed styles in painting, drawing, and installation, this pairing of their work promises to have a dialouge and relationship that celebrates the differences, and showcases the collective talent as they expand their respective ranges.
