5th Biennial Footprints International Exhibition
June 5, 2016 to August 28, 2016
Public Opening Reception 2-5pm
From the website: contemprints.org
The Center for Contemporary Printmaking’s Footprint International 2016 is an opportunity for the presentation of current trends and innovations in contemporary printmaking within the bounds of the one square foot (12” x 12”) configuration. The square format was uncommon in art until the advent of abstraction and presents distinct challenges of composition and expression. Within these precise limits, artists must confront a space and create visual order and formal structure.
The show will be comprised of 80 prints from artists representing 14 countries.
Andrew Stein Raftery is a printmaker specializing in narrative scenes of contemporary American life. Trained in painting and printmaking at Boston University and Yale, he has focused on burin engraving for the past 12 years, publishing the portfolios Suit Shopping in 2002 and Open House in 2008. Andrew is a professor of printmaking at Rhode Island School of Design.
