Highpoint recently celebrated the accomplishments of the 2004 Jerome Emerging Printmakers: Jeremy Lund, Karl Nelson, and Jamie Swanson. An exhibit of their newest prints—created at Highpoint during a recent nine-month residency—opened HP’s 2005 gallery season. The Jerome Emerging Printmakers’ Exhibition Meet-the-Artists reception took place on Friday, January 21, from 6:30–9:00 pm; the public was invited to attend this free event. The show will remain on view through March 4, 2005.
This latest exhibit marks the conclusion of the second Jerome Emerging Printmakers’ Residency at Highpoint. Made possible with generous funding from the Jerome Foundation, the Residency exists to provide a venue for emerging Minnesota artists to further their exploration of the printmaking arts. Eligible artists demonstrate technical printmaking experience and dedication to their work, but have not yet received a commensurate amount of professional accomplishment and recognition. The residents featured in this exhibition were chosen for their demonstrated artistic ability and promise, and have spent the past nine months creating new work in Highpoint’s printmaking studio.
Special thanks goes to the excellent panel of jurors that made the selections: Betsy Carpenter, Curatorial Assistant, Permanent Collection at the Walker Art Center; Tim Peterson, Founder and Director of Franklin Art Works, Minneapolis; and David Rathman, acclaimed printmaker/painter and Highpoint-published artist.
