Hot Off the Press 2006

Summer Cooperative Exhibition

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

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.
