Passive Aggressive by Natalie Hudson

Natalie Hudson's Passive Aggressive

This is part of a recurring installation that is installed on the green for this event. The piece starts out white, and due to foot print traffic over the piece, text appears. Eventually the text will break down if there is enough foot print traffic, and the culminating work demonstrates a complete loss of control over the results.

The co-director of the Steam Exchange, a community arts non-profit in the Smoketown neighborhood of Louisville, KY will share (and ask for participation in) a collaborative design project. The Steam Exchange has been working with Smoketown residents to honor the role women play in the neighborhood. Come stop by to honor one significant woman in your life by sending them a postcard. Bring an address with you, write a message, select then screen print the design of your choosing, and hang it on the clothesline to dry. At the end of the day, we will have amassed a group of powerful images. At the conclusion of the event, the stack of postcards will be mailed out. The images will hopefully travel across the country resulting in an uplifting and empowering act for both the giver and receiver, as well as a chance for the Smoketown neighborhood to influence people beyond Louisville.

 

SideCar Press

SideCar PressStop by and pull a print off the sidecar press and talk with the owner about printmaking! This side car press is a custom proto type created by Tony Desantis for his educational mission. Side Car Press strives for a more positive, upbeat future for everyone so the printed imagery is created to promote that message. The prints are meant to teach lessons in positivity and have an inspirational theme.

“Mirror of Life II: An Exploration of the Built Environment”

Curated by Sang-Mi Yoo

Reception: Thursday, March 16, 6 - 8 pm

In his book, To-morrow: A Peaceful Path to Real Reform in 1898, Sir Ebenezer Howard describes Garden Cities as an idealized living environment to balance mankind’s needs. Ever since then, many urban planners have developed this idea to further realize their utopian visions. In reality, the built environment influences our everyday life in various urban and non-urban settings. How do artists observe the built environment and infiltrate that information? The five artists plus one collaborative team raise questions about built environments through their political, environmental, romantic and idealistic lenses.

Participating Artists: Amze Emmons, Nick Conbere & John Holmgren, Kevin Haas, Jessica Meuninck-Ganger, Nick Satinover and Sang-Mi Yoo

“Blue Plastic Goat” work by Lauren Peterson

Blue Plastic Goat by Lauren Peterson at the GSU Perimeter College Clarkston Campus

Artist Talk: Thursday, March 16th, 6 - 8 pm

Once an object reaches the household curb it loses its original purpose. Any and every object becomes trash, ambiguous, disgusting, and homogenous to a multitude of other rejected objects through the single action of its placement for disposal. Even though the object may not lose any of its physical qualities – the object may retain its shape, size, color, etc. – our capacity to describe lessens because the object has lost its use-function. Blue Plastic Goat is a text-based installation containing descriptions of discarded objects. By obscuring legibility and placing text as simple form this mixed-media installation approaches the transitional moment from useful good to useless bad, identifiable to unidentifiable.

Hathaway Contemporary Gallery

Monoprints by Karen Schwartz

Reception: Thursday, March 16, 6-9pm

Karen Schwartz is an artist and also a clinical psychologist. She is interested in the way in which her two practices cross-pollinate, and addresses the overlapping topics to both psychoanalytic and art audiences. “I think of monoprinting as capturing the dialogic nature of the artist's interaction with materials and surfaces that have qualities of their own. The monoprint process highlights accident and invites the artist to recognize form amidst accidental happenings according to her own subjective priorities and preoccupations."

“Norman Wagner, SGCI Award for Teaching Excellence”

Solo exhibition of works by Norman Wagner, recipient of the Award for Teaching Excellence. In addition to sharing work representing his past, Wagner will be showing a series of collagraph-monoprint assemblages. “Some of these artworks utilize oil based intaglio process color inks, while the most recent artworks utilize the water-soluble, soy-based Akua intaglio inks, which for me inform a new printing experience—resulting in significantly different color enhancement.” Norman considers his art to be experimental in nature, intuitive and introspective, yet not adhering to any particular mode of expression. His working repertoire includes: drawing, subtractive relief printmaking, lithography, serigraphy, hand set type, letterpress, aspects of handmade paper, assemblage, assemblage sculpture, installation art, and digital photo montage.

Orpheus: Never Look Back

“Orpheus: Never Look Back”

Reception: Thursday, March 16, 6-10pm (ticketed event only)

orpheusbrewing.com 1 440 Dutch Valley PL, NE, Atlanta, GA 30324

The story of Orpheus, is fraught with “arrivals and departures”. Endowed with the gift of music, Orpheus uses his ability to charm the earthly and spiritual realms, escaping the sirens call during his adventures with the Argonauts, and persuading Hades to return Eurydice from the Underworld. Even in death, Orpheus’s head and lyre were saved from his attackers and carried to safety by the winds and water. While “Never Look Back” is an interpretation of Hades instructions to Orpheus in his retrieval of Eurydice from the Underworld, it speaks universally to the bold acceptance of the decisions we make and the resulting paths and directions forged.
Artists include members of the SGCI Atlanta Steering Committee & other invitees: Hannah Adair, Aaron Artrip, Robert Brown, Abby Bullard, Valerie Dibble, Terri Dilling, Kathy Garrou, Jerushia Graham, Melissa Harshman, Stephanie Kolpy, Eun Lee, Cynthia Lollis & Daniela Deeg, Michael Marling de Cuellar, Chris Neuenschwander, Gina Reynoso, Cassidy Russell, Debrah Santini, Geo Sipp, Stephanie Smith, Deborah Sosower, Sergio Suárez, Matthew Sugarman

The Animals’ Vegan Manifesto, co-curated by Stephanie Kolpy and Cynthia Farnell is an exhibition premiering many of the original black and white woodcut prints that make up legendary animal and human rights activist Sue Coe’s soon to be published new book by the same name. They are a plea for each of us as human beings to be more empathetic and take more personal responsibility in standing up for and securing rights for all animals, people and the planet as a whole. Sue Coe’s life-affirming philosophy extolls, life over capital, compassion over greed, community over self, and action over complacency.

Bio: Sue Coe grew up next to a slaughterhouse in Liverpool. She studied at the Royal College of Art in London and left for New York in 1972. Early in her career, she was featured in almost every issue of Art Spiegelman’s groundbreaking magazine Raw, and has since contributed illustrations to the New York Times, the New Yorker, The Nation, Time, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, Esquire and Mother Jones, among other publications. Her previous books include Dead Meat (winner of the 1991 Genesis Award) and Cruel. Among her many awards are the Dickinson College Arts Award, the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Women’s Caucus for Art, and a National Academy of Arts Award (2009). Sue Coe’s paintings, drawings and prints, in the tradition of Kathe Kollwitz, Francisco Goya and George Grosz, have been exhibited in galleries and museums around the world, including New York’s Museum of Modern Art.

Works by The Madison Mafia Exhibition Co-Curators Art Werger and Warrington Colescott

Warrington Colescott (American, b. 1921): It has been stated that Warrington Colescott is the premier satirical printmaker working in the United States interpreting contemporary and historical events. His technically innovative prints may be seen in the tradition of such artists as William Hogarth, Francisco de Goya, and George Grosz. Bio: In September 1949 Warrington Colescott began his career at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he taught for 37 years, retiring in 1986. During those years, Colescott continued his education in Europe in 1956–57 as a Fulbright Fellow at the Slade School of Fine Art, University of London, and in 1963, as he returned to London on a Guggenheim Fellowship. Colescott has an extensive exhibition history and his work is included in numerous public collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum, Tate Gallery of Modern Art, Metropolitan Museum, Museum of Modern Art, Bibliothėque nationale de France, Art Institute of Chicago, Brooklyn Museum, Madison Art Center, Chazen Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, Portland Art Museum, Carnegie-Mellon Museum, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum.

Art Werger Art Werger

Art Werger (American, b. 1955): One can feel a dichotomy in the aesthetically elegant works of Art Werger. In some of those works he presents a quiet peaceful grace while other works are fraught with tension - a number of his works demonstrating the influence of film noir genre movies and their compositional aesthetics. What is consistent is that Art Werger’s work most often presents a quiet detachment from the events taking place. Bio: Art Werger graduated with, an MFA in Graphics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1982 and is currently a Professor of art at Ohio University. Over the last thirty years, he has focused on etching, aquatint and mezzotint and has become an internationally renowned artist in those media having received over 250 awards in national and international exhibitions, in 2015 receiving the Guanlan International Printmaking Prize at the Guanlan Biennial in China, followed by winning the Grand Prize at the Ekaterinburg mezzotint festival in Russia. Werger has works in the collection of the Guanlan Printmaking Base in China, The Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, DC and over three hundred other corporate and private collections.

Well, it’s happening at Georgia State University where the Atlanta Printmakers Studio, Georgia’s premier non-profit printmaking organization has moved its 8th annual Print Big! for 2017. The goal of Print Big! reflects the mission of the Atlanta Printmakers Studio – to support and celebrate the vitality of printmaking and to educate the community about this historic image-making medium. Ten participating groups from Georgia, featuring artists from community organizations, colleges, universities, and high schools, will design and carve 4x8 feet woodblocks that will be printed on the day of the event with a steamroller. A diverse number of Georgia organizations have participated in this event in past years including the Atlanta Printmakers Studio, Clark-Atlanta University, Georgia State University, Kennesaw State University, Savannah College of Art and Design Atlanta, University of North Georgia, and the University of West Georgia.

Craid Dongoski's Cupules image

GSU Professor Craig Dongoski’s Demo and Performance in the Park

Taking place next to Gilmer Street Southeast inside Hurt Park in front of the GSU School of Art and Design. 12 noon - 4 pm

Demo: Creating, extracting bio-feedback, and printing from Cupules.

A Common Task: Rock-Cupule (Demo, Meditation and Performance): Capules will be respectfully and deliberately created by participants on one large stone. Relief prints from these cupules will be produced as a tangible outcome during the GSU “Printmaking in the Park event.”

Sophisticated Bio-Feedback will be utilized to expose and explore energy from the stone and to be used as a potential performance material. This is an active interaction with the past that has literal, mystical and ritual connotations. Because this is a time-demanding proposal, cupule-making will begin before conference.

 

Johnny Plastini Image

Johnny Plastini, Hurt Park Demo Assistant Professor Colorado State University

Johnny Plastini, Assistant Professor at Colorado State University, hosts an interactive printmaking installation in the spirit of the deceased printmaker Bryan Nash Gill’s research with hand printed tree cross sections. He is working collaboratively within the public sphere that utilizes a collection of spruce tree cross sections imported from Northern Colorado. These alternative matrices will be shared with SGCI 2017 conference participants to be printed in relief, by hand through way of traditional baren tool methods. Enacted in direct conversation with GSU Professor Craig Dongoski’s “A Common Task: Rock-Cupule” demonstration, Plastini encourages interdisciplinary dialog surrounding issues of ecology and our responsible place in the cosmos. A secondary goal is to facilitate the tangible record of a historically rich printmaking process which enables each participant to take a tree cross section print home with them as a visual memory from their conversations and experience in the park. 12 noon – 4 pm

“Ink Travels, Lessons Learned from Sydney Cross”

Ink Travels by Syd CrossOpen to public 3/18/2017

Venue: 5C Gallery | 1600 Peachtree St NW, Atlanta, GA

This exhibition, a print exchange between her alumni, aims to salute Sydney Cross' achievements and express our endless gratitude for her dedicated years as a teacher and mentor. Syd’s quote “ink travels!” was given to us by Steven Chapp, Syd’s first printmaking student at Clemson University. The phrase is familiar to many. It refers to our valiant but constantly inadequate cleaning efforts in the printshop. In this context, however, the quote also refers to the wide reaching influence of Syd’s teaching, as the collection of prints comes from alumni living across the nation, with students who studied in Clemson in the early 1980s to students who graduated in May 2015.

Exhibition: 3/15/2107 - 3/19/2017 | Gallery Hours: Saturday 9 am - 5 pm

Joseph Norman prints

“Joseph Norman: Variations on a Theme”

This exhibition features black-and-white lithographs from Joseph Norman series created over the last twenty years. A recurring feature in these prints is the utilization of vegetation and allegorical symbols to render visible the effects of oppressive environments. The artist subtly varies tonal qualities, line, and shape in relatively mundane objects to insinuate a connection between the metamorphoses, elemental forces of nature, and the challenge of living in a world replete with contradictions and entanglements.
