'Under Pressure' printmaking exhibit at Hyde Gallery

March 28, 2016 - April 28, 2016

Grossmont College Hyde Gallery, Bldg. 25

The Hyde Art Gallery at Grossmont College presents the exhibit, "Under Pressure: Printmaking Today," March 28-April 28, with an artists' receptiion 5-:30-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 5. 

The 18 artists in this exhibition curated by Jennifer Anne Bennett, Grossmont College art professor, are not only printmakers; they bring a vast variety of expertise from other fields:  photography, painting, ceramics, sculpture, bookmaking, installation, and performance.  While they respect the history of printmaking and the long-held traditions of the medium, they also poke at the edges of the medium as they each seek to expand existing boundaries with a unique and compelling approach to their work. The pieces in this exhibition explore a wide array of topics: beauty and the sublime, narrative, history, identity and culture, memory, intuition, and place. The works are minimal, structural, atmospheric, playful, layered, and certainly varied.

“Under Pressure: printmaking today” gives an expanded portrayal of what printmaking can be, with the variety of techniques, processes, themes, and influences.

Ayad Almissouri,
Jenny Armer,
Diana Marie Behl,
