Calling all printmakers, print enthusiasts and print collectors! Please join us at Highpoint this Saturday for our fourth biennial Open Portfolio event. Nearly 60 printmakers will be showcasing their work and interacting with attendees. Many of the prints will be available for purchase directly from the artists. Guest reviewers will include curators, gallery directors and print professionals. After the portfolio review, stay for a fascinating panel discussion with our special guests including Dennis Michael Jon (Associate Curator, Minneapolis Institute of Arts), Becky Dunham (Curator, Plains Art Museum), and Curator Christina Chang.
What is Open Portfolio IV? Printmakers from Minnesota and beyond are invited to sign-up and share their portfolios of work. While some portion of displayed prints may be digitally based, this is a call for traditionally printed images using the techniques of intaglio, relief, monoprint, lithography and screenprinting. (Giclée prints and purely digital prints are not included in this event.) Artists and their prints must be present during the event on Saturday, June 27 and are highly encouraged to stay for both group sessions and a panel discussion at 5:00 p.m.
