The 4th Annual Connecticut Printmakers Invitational (CPI) will open with a public reception on Saturday March 21, from 6 – 9 p.m. at Hygienic Art, 79 Bank Street, New London, and will run till April 18.
The impetus for the creation of this Annual Connecticut Printmakers Invitational came into being as a way to foster understanding and appreciation of the art of printmaking. Art enthusiasts are given the opportunity to appreciate the different printmaking techniques from etching to lithography and understand the tremendous skill and craft that goes into producing a print. This exhibit is held in a different part of Connecticut and different gallery each year in order to share printmaking with as many Connecticut residents as possible. The professional printmakers invited to exhibit in this show also come from Connecticut and the high quality work they display varies greatly in their subject matter and technique.
Participating artists include Irene Miller (Monotype), Jo Yarrington (Chiné Colle, Polaroid Transfer and Transfer Print), Shirley Bernstein (Color Woodcuts, Skyscapes), Meldoy Leary (Photopolymer Intaglio), Yelizaveta Masalimova (Monoprints and Intaglio), Karen Vogel (Monoprints), Renee Santhouse (Trace Monoprints), Alexia Lalande (Woodcuts), Natasha Feliciano (Etching). This year’s 4th CPI is curated by Sarah McKay.
