OPENING RECEPTION: Sunday, June 5, 2022, 2-4 PM
The Center for Contemporary Printmaking’s 8th Biennial FOOTPRINT International Exhibition includes 85 prints by artists representing 13 countries as selected by invited juror, Jeff Bergman. Artists were asked to submit original prints measuring exactly 12” x 12” for consideration. CCP received submissions of 305 prints by 178 artists demonstrating current trends and innovations in printmaking within the challenging space of a precise limit. In response to the work submitted, Bergman states “Gathering a group of approximately 300 prints together reveals the common themes found in art the world over: landscape, portrait, narrative composition and abstraction. Nearly one hundred works on paper, one foot square each, exemplify the art and artists of contemporary printmaking…Images rendered shadowy in etching, fluid in monotype and bright and brilliant in a variety of relief processes reveal a constellation of printmakers in the galaxy …of today’s working artists.” The exhibition is on view in CCP’s Grace Ross Shanley Gallery through August 28, 2022.
Juror Jeff Bergman reviewed 305 print submissions from 178 artists representing eighteen countries. Bergman selected 85 works from 79 artists representing 19 states and 12 countries.
