ARTIST RECEPTION

Seaside, CA 93955


PATT is honored to be exhibiting at Open Grounds Studio.This is an exhibition of prints that embody a deep and vast level of expertise and diversity from the the PATT group.

Our budding relationship with OGS began almost ten years ago, when Denese Sanders (OGS Founder) was invited to consult with the PATT leadership group about their plans and organizational structure for a printmaking cooperative. Three years ago, that very same group of PATT officers, and new PATT members were instrumental in the development, buildout and founding of Open Ground Studios.

A full circle of collegial commitment to the advancement of the arts and printmaking on the Central Coast! This exhibition will contain artwork from 16 printmakers, representing contemporary and traditional printmaking methods from etching and woodcut, to screen print, photopolymer intaglio and monotype.

Printmaking: Here/Now

August 17, 2015 – January 15, 2016

Presented by Santa Cruz County Bank Arts Collaborative and Printmakers At The Tannery

Curated by Joan Blackmer

Reception: September 30, 2015, 5:30-7:00pm.
Santa Cruz branch, 720 Front Street

Printmaking: Here/Now explores new and old methodologies in the art of printmaking. Over 80 works on display represent a diversity of techniques by eighteen member artists of PATT including silkscreen, etching, collograph, monotype, chine collé, photopolymer etching, photogravure, linocut, collage and woodcut printing.

Printmaker and instructor, Jane Gregorius partnered with Janis O’Driscoll, printmaker and Santa Cruz public librarian to create this show at the invitation of Mary Anne Carson, Senior Vice President and Director of the Arts Collaborative at Santa Cruz County Bank. Jane explains, “The works on display in this exhibition represent the unique versatility of this medium. Artists have been challenged by the difficulties of making prints for centuries, yet have loved the surprising, sometimes accidental results. There are so many ways to make a print, and Janis and I wanted to include as many as possible. Fortunately, there are 18 of us so we’re able to show almost every aspect of the printmaking world.
