Stand Out Prints 2014

Highpoint's International Juried Exhibition

  • Friday, September 5, 2014 from 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm
  • On View: September 5, 2014 – October 4, 2014

Opening Reception: Friday, September 5, 6:30 – 9 pm
Gallery Talk with the Juror: September 5 at 7 pm

Highpoint Center for Printmaking is pleased to present Stand Out Prints, Highpoint’s second juried print exhibition. 67 prints (by 64 artists across four countries and 23 states) were selected from more than 800 submissions through an international call.

Juror Susan Tallman, art historian and Editor-in-Chief of Art in Print remarked, “The prints chosen for this show exhibit a particular kind of attention to locations and moments in time, like a finger urgently pointed to say, “here.”  This quality flies in the face of what we know about our world—the exponential proliferation of pixels without location, images without context, places without substance. But printed matter has always had a magical ability to be both here and there, a thing you hold and a thing you hold in mind. That is what these prints capture.”

The public is invited to an opening reception on Friday, September 5, from 6:30 – 9 pm. At this free event, guests will have the opportunity to mingle, tour HP’s printshop, and enjoy beverages and hors d’oeuvres. Stand Out Prints Juror Susan Tallman will give a gallery talk that evening at 7 pm.
