Printmakers' collaboration exhibit: 'Collective Ink' at the Popcorn Gallery

See also

Do you like to watch the popcorn popping? There is an extraordinary initiative by a group of veteran printmakers who have approached developing an exhibit as a “collective” and collaboration. It isn’t just any group show because these artist printmakers have deep chemistry. They work together at the Arlington Lee Arts Center printmakers studio, and the show is popping for the Popcorn Gallery in Glen Echo, Maryland.

Fascinating is how artists who share common tools and presses can produce such diversely creative art. Of course that is the way among all artists, but in the technical craft of printmaking, there is much experimentation with materials, inks, methods, techniques, and technology, and these artists learn from one another while sharing ideas.

“Collective Ink Printmakers: Recent Work of Eight Artists

This exhibition is dedicated to the art of print in all its variety of technique, including etching and aquatint, monoprint and monotype, lithography, reduction woodcut, linocut and photopolymer intaglio. It showcases the work of eight Metro-area printmakers : Cinda Berry, Nancy Murphree Davis, Maureen George, Janet Gohres, Wes Muntain, Cherie M. Redlinger, Missy Stockton, and Liz Wolf, each of whom offers a unique interpretation of a chosen theme. Subjects include portraiture, landscape, still life, and abstract composition.”

The show's visual interest is enhanced by the diverse methods of printmaking represented (including monotype, etching and aquatint, reduction woodcut and photopolymer intaglio) and the subject matter included, but the exhibition remains a unified body because all of the exhibited works will be prints.

Collective Ink incorporates a variety of prints and techniques, allowing each artist to present the best of her work. Each offers a unique take on a theme, ranging from landscape, photo imagery and still life to fantasy and portraiture..”
