Contemporary Printmaking in Ohio

The Method & the Matrix

Contemporary Printmaking in Ohio

The Cincinnati Arts Association's Alice F. and Harris K. Weston Art Gallery in the Aronoff Center for the Arts announces two new exhibitions that focus on contemporary approaches to printmaking by Ohio artists: Cincinnati Portfolio III features work produced locally by ten Cincinnati artists, and The Method & the Matrix: Contemporary Printmaking in Ohio features the work of fifteen regional artists.

Organized by the Ohio Arts Council and co-curated by Ohio artists Todd DeVriese, head of the Department of Art and Design at Zayed University in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and Bellamy Printz, former programming director and co-founder of Zygote Press in Cleveland, The Method & the Matrix brings together a diverse selection of fifteen artists from across the state working in a variety of printmaking methods who share a fascination with process, experimentation, duplication and, in some cases, the use of traditionally commercial techniques for aesthetic purposes. The art of printmaking provides a unique and compelling experience for artists to create a reproducible matrix of their work. Taking full advantage of the conceptual and technical means offered by the print medium, each artist in the exhibition succeeds in making their own mark on the world with their individual matrix.

Represented in the exhibition are both emerging and mid-career artists including: Ronald Abram (Newark), Emily Blaser (Cleveland), Christopher S. Daniggelis (Columbus), Carolyn Fraser (Oberlin), Margaret Kimura (Cleveland), Holly Morrison (Cleveland), Michael Loderstedt (Cleveland), Marina Mangubi (Wooster), Mary Manusos (Athens), Liz Maugans (Olmsted Township), Mark Patsfall (Cincinnati), J. Noel Reifel (Kent), Arturo Rodriguez (Toledo), Kim Vito (Dayton), and Art Werger (Athens).
