CONNECTIONS | Edmonton & Houston
Jul 11 - Aug 16, 2015
Showing at Galveston Arts Center from July 11 through August 16 is CONNECTIONS, featuring a talented roster of 12 printmakers from the Houston, TX area and 12 printmakers from the Edmonton, Alberta area in Canada. The goal of the exhibition, curated by Clint Willour, is to create dialogue, and provide inspiration through the art of printmaking. Approximately 1,900 miles apart, PrintMatters in Houston and the Society of Northern Alberta Printmakers (SNAP) in Edmonton come together at the Galveston Arts Center during the annual PrintHouston Festival this summer in the exhibition CONNECTIONS. The international exhibition of 24 printmaker artists showcases a variety of print disciplines for the local community experience. All pieces in the exhibition are 15x20 inches on paper, yet each artwork is made by a different artist and is uniquely its own. More information can be found at Current Exhibit
