Where: Artlink, 300 E. Main St.
Artlink opens its “38th National Print Exhibition” tonight.
The show features more than 70 pieces using a variety of print methods including lithograph, woodcutting, screen printing and mezzotint. Winners chosen by juror Liz Maugans will be announced tonight during an opening reception from 5 to 8 p.m.
Gallery coordinator Maddie Miller says the show is a great opportunity for printmakers to get their work seen and build their résumé. This year's exhibition received 300 submissions from around the country, a record for the show.
Some of the types of works on display, such as digital prints, are a nod to the changing times.
“The print world is kind of moving into a more contemporary place that's considering more types of print than it has in the past, so that's really exciting,” Miller says.
A Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum letterpress workshop will take place from 10 a.m. to noon April 15 with Stephanie Carpenter. Then, Cinema Center will screen “Pressing On: The Letterpress Film” at 2 p.m. The film examines why letterpress printing has survived in the digital age. Go to ArtlinkFW.com to register for the workshop. Tickets for the movie can be purchased through Cinema Center.
