Hot Off the Press 2006

Summer Cooperative Exhibition

On View: June 30, 2006 – August 26, 2006
Friday, June 30, 2006 from 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Highpoint Center for Printmaking announces Hot off the Press!, the 9th Printshop Cooperative Exhibition, on view June 30 through August 26, 2006. Dozens of original prints — including lithographs, screenprints, etchings, woodcuts, and more — ranging in subject from realistic landscapes and figures to expressive abstractions and experimental efforts — will be on view and for sale in this exhibit. All work in the show has been made by members of the Printshop Cooperative, a diverse group of printmakers sharing access to HP’s studio space.Join the artists for an informal opening reception Friday, June 30, 6:30–9:00 PM. This lively event will offer guests a chance to meet and talk with many of the Co-op members and see the presses, tools, and equipment they use to create their prints. The reception is free and open to all; beverages and hors d’oeuvres will be served.

“Highpoint is a vibrant setting for this exhibit and sale,” said Carla McGrath, Executive Director of Highpoint. “The gallery space opens up into the Co-op studio area, where visitors can see presses and even glimpse printmakers at work. Being able to connect the work on view to the artistic process in this way creates a special experience.”

Artists who work at Highpoint have access to its state-of-the-art printmaking facilities and the invaluable stimulation of working alongside fellow printmakers. In addition, semi-annual shows provide a contact point between the artists and the community. While some Highpoint Co-op members pursue printmaking as an avocation, others are professional artists whose works are found in museums, businesses, and private residences around the region and around the country. The Co-op membership includes a number of recent art school graduates and art educators and draws participants from around the Twin Cities and regional communities.
