We welcome you to view our International Exhibition of 46 Artist’s Fine Prints from 17 counties including the Portfolio THRESHOLD which originated in India, and other large scale unique prints which have mostly been created at Gravity Press Experimental Print Shop in North Adams, Massachusetts.
This exciting exhibition of Fine Prints features diverse work from around the world. The themed THRESHOLD Portfolio of 39 prints which was curated by Nicholas Ruth, has been exhibited worldwide and is now on view at the Bihar Museum as part of the Biennial in India, celebrating the Tenth Year of this esteemed program that the founder and director of the International Print Exchange Program(IPEP), Rajesh Pullarwar, continues to nourish.The portfolio’s concept has been one of particular interest to me within my own work and the impetus for my participation. An example included in this show is a huge monoprint, from my earliest years in North Adams and never previously exhibited, titled Threshold #4. Other pieces of my work in this exhibit, are works on paper directly related to my IPEP print, as well as some small, brand new sculptures which include THRESHOLD prints of mine from this series.I will also be working on a larger wing sculpture using these prints in the fabrication. This will be in progress during open gallery hours and be completed and available for purchase by the last day of the exhibition.Further explorations of fine art prints include works created or related to prints done at Gravity Press Experimental Print Shop, working with me as the artist’s master printmaker. The 6 selected, exemplary artists, span multiple generations and hail from 2 countries; exhibiting strong and diverse works, they contribute and continue to create “an intricate mosaic of cultural narratives”.
