Jerome artists Rose Sexton, Justin Sehorn and John Hunter are printing their way towards their exhibit opening May 20. Beginning in September 2010 the artists have been working in the studio at Highpoint. In November they visited the print study room at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, and in December experienced the first of their group critiques with Bartholomew Ryan, Assistant Curator at the Walker Art Center.
Their diverse interests and approaches to printing promise to deliver an outstanding exhibit in May. Rose works with woodblock printing using power tools to create rough, expressive marks. Her imagery is focused on the relationships between humans and animals. Justin makes screenprints that play with symbols and manipulations of their meanings. He incorporates hand-drawn and painted elements into his prints. John’s work stems from his experience as an adopted Korean-American and reflections on his recent travels to Japan. He uses screenprints to integrate memories, dreams and symbols into his personal narrative.
Thank you to the Jerome Foundation for providing funding for this eighth year of the Jerome Emerging Printmakers Residency at Highpoint. The next call for Jerome artists will go out in early May 2011.
Highpoint would like to thank our 2010 jurors for this very competitive program: Bartholomew Ryan, Assistant Curator, Walker Art Center and Brian Shure, Assistant Professor, Rhode Island School of Design and Master Printer.
