An Altering Role:

Works by Cat Snapp and the Bump it Mafia

January 9, 2013 - January 9, 2013

The Bump it Mafia was created in response to the male-centric overtones in varying pockets of the contemporary print world. The idea grew from a desire to see a powerful audacious presence of women in printmaking, both in academia and in the social realm. It is a celebration of womanhood in printmaking highlighting the importance of camaraderie and community not just amongst women, but also amongst all artists of all backgrounds.


Cat Snapp received her MFA in Printmaking from the University of North Texas in 2012.
