Printmaking Exhibit in Burris Hall Gallery Through March 13

A free printmaking exhibit featuring national and international artists is on display at New Mexico Highlands University’s Burris Hall Gallery, 903 National Ave, through March 13.

“The exhibit covers a huge variety of printmaking techniques, including woodcuts, silk screens, lithography, etchings, linoleum cuts, and more,” said Todd Christensen, the Department of Fine Arts professor who organized the exhibit. “The exhibit is an opportunity to see the work of accomplished U.S. printmakers along with international artists.”

Christensen organized this printmaking exhibit, as well as a first-time printmaking conference earlier this month for fine arts students and the community. The conference included guest artists presenting lectures, demonstrations and open studios.

“It brings excitement, energy and experimentation to our students’ work when they get to participate in a conference like this, and see this caliber of printmaking exhibit,” Christensen said. “It’s good for students to learn different techniques from a variety of artists. It gives them a lot of new ideas.”

A large collaborative wood block print piece that displays the international flavor of the exhibit is “6 Sides 2 Every Story.” Nearly 600 artists cut wood blocks for the piece, each drawing inspiration from international news stories. “Six Sides 2 Every Story” is touring the United States.

“This piece shows how art can be collaborative and community based,” Christensen said.

Christensen, a professor at the university since 2008, teaches printmaking, painting and drawing. His printmaking work is also included in the exhibit.

Christensen said the Department of Fine Arts’ annual Iron Tribe event inspired him to create a similar event for printmaking. Iron Tribe features an iron art exhibit, art foundry performance casting, an iron art symposium, and more.

Christensen is already planning ways to expand the printmaking conference and exhibit in the future.

WNC Gallery Exhibit
Printmaking Exhibit Reaches to All Sides of the Planet
CARSON CITY – A collaborative art project that reaches out to artists around the world will show at Western Nevada College January 25-February 25. “6 Sides 2 Every Story,” a printmaking exhibit organized by Reno artist Candace Nicol, will show in the Atrium Gallery to open the spring semester. A public reception is Wednesday, Jan. 27, 4:30-5:30 p.m. in the Bristlecone Building galleries.
More than 500 participants were asked to illustrate their own perspectives by carving one side of a wooden cube. Each cube represents a current story found in a national/international article, internet posting, or magazine. The culminating project includes artists from the United States, Canada, England and South Africa.  Within two years, 95 cubes were carved.
“By sharing a cube consisting of the same story, some artists connected with each other in their communities, while others shared one story with strangers in other places,” Nicol said. “Participants responded to one another’s marks, their visual images and the initial story.”
Candace Nicol teaches printmaking at Truckee Meadows Community College, and is a co-founder of the Northern Nevada Printmakers’ Conspiracy. Her work is frequently exhibited nationally and internationally and is part of many permanent collections.
This project is funded in part by an Artist Fellowship grant from the Nevada Arts Council, a state agency; and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency; and by an artist grant from Sierra Arts.
The WNC Carson art galleries, located in the Bristlecone Building on the Carson City campus are open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  All exhibitions and related activities are free and open to the public.
