CCP’s Annual Members Exhibition 2022

OF THE MOMENT

IMPORTANT DATES

RECEIVING DATES:
November 28 – December 4, from 12 – 5 PM
EXHIBITION DATES:
December 11, 2022 – February 19, 2023

Dear Members,

It is that time again – time for CCP’s annual exhibition of prints by our member artists. It occurred to me that while I see many of you here in the studios over the course of the year, I don’t see all of you, which leads me to wonder what your printmaking practice is like and where you are within your body of work.

Rather than set everyone off on a theme of my choosing, one that invites you to explore an idea or path that I set forth, I thought it would be a good use of everyone’s time to ask for

submissions of work demonstrating where you are right now. I am most curious about what themes, processes, subject matter you are currently working through. One of the great things about the members’ exhibition is that we have so many different presentations of work, when visiting the gallery, moving from one to the next to next is energizing in that we can showcase the variety and originality of each artist’s vision within printmaking. I’m eager to push that further because I believe showcasing each of you as you share your current focus will yield an exciting body of work.

So bring me your vibrant, quiet, graphic, representative, abstract, traditional, conceptual, subtle, bold, playful, serious, your current place of focus so we can celebrate the depth and breadth of our artist members and the many facets of the CCP community.

Kimberly Henrikson

Executive Director
