Punchy colors, lines, shapes, stripes, dots, spirals, grids – they’re the building blocks of compositions and more complex subjects that give form to ideas. In this exhibition 12 artists delight us with a vibrant kaleidoscope of restless technicolor abstractions, making use of the printmaking processes of woodcut, etching, lithography,and combinations thereof. These prints demonstrate different approaches taken by a wide-ranging group of artists as they explore the ideas of abstraction and patterning, transforming them in unique ways while maintaining a restriction of using these isolated compositional elements as subject.

On approach, viewers will be captivated by the carnival of colors at play before them, but a close examination will yield a greater awareness of the details that make these prints so compelling, whether through integrating collage, cut-outs, pearlescent inks, or the transfixing interplay between overlapping layers of colors.

Work included in the exhibition from Polly Apfelbaum, Rodney Carswell, Evan Colbert, Jeffrey Gibson, Takuji Hamanaka, Xylor Jane, Sol LeWitt, Terry Maker, Clark Richert, Barbara Takenaga, James Turrell, Stephen Westfall
