Nov. 1-Dec.18, 2010
Off the Wall is an exhibition that presents works of art created in the print studio. Although these works are considered forms of printmaking, they challenge the traditional expressions of the medium. They have 3-D qualities not normally associated with the flat plane nature of the print medium. Many extend from the wall up to ten inches—even farther; others unfold as much as thirty feet long.
This exhibition expands on the medium of printmaking in innovative and fascinating ways. The featured artists include not only young and emerging practitioners but nationally and internationally known artists already recognized for pushing the boundaries of artistic mediums in search of new ways to articulate their vision. This show personifies that creative quest.
Many of the exhibited works have been created at Lafayette’s Experimental Printmaking Institute, EPI.
Reception: Sunday, Nov. 7, 3-5 p.m.
Conversation: Sunday, Nov. 7, 4 p.m. with Sam Gilliam and Jase Clark about innovative printmaking techniques.
