Multiple Ones: Contemporary Perspectives in Printmedia

On view: July 1, 2020 through January 24, 2021 at UNF Gallery of Art at MOCA Jacksonville

 

Featuring the work of contemporary printmakers and highlighting the multitude of possibilities that printmaking holds as a medium, this exhibition presents printmaking in a fresh and indisputably current way. The works featured demonstrate how contemporary artists are breaking away from the traditional techniques associated with the art form, to produce unique works through unconventional methods, materials, and display. This exhibition was curated by Sheila Goloborotko, UNF printmaking professor, and was previously shown at the Hunterdon Art Museum in Clinton, New Jersey, and in the Kwan Fong Gallery of Art and Culture and William Rolland Gallery of Fine Art at California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks, California.
