Highpoint's International Juried Exhibition
Friday, September 16, 2016 from 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm
On View: September 16, 2016 – October 15, 2016
Highpoint Center for Printmaking is pleased to present Stand Out Prints, Highpoint’s second international juried print exhibition. 72 prints and objects (by 64 artists across four countries and 27 states) were selected from more than 800 submissions through an international call. Juror Elizabeth Wyckoff, Curator of Prints, Drawings and Photographs at the Saint Louis Art Museum, offered the following remarks:
As I studied the strong field of entries, I was excited to see so many artists approaching new and old media in intriguing ways, and working on a large scale as well. The field of entries was impressive and varied, and in the end it was my hope that the show would convey a sense of how this group of artists is tackling a range of issues both familiar and unfamiliar, where the primary aim could be pictorial, personal, conceptual, or political, alone or in combination. All of these works demonstrate how art, whether it shocks or pleases, always moves the viewer.
The public is invited to an opening reception on Friday, September 16, from 6:30 – 9 pm. At this free event, guests will have the opportunity to mingle, tour HP’s printshop, and enjoy beverages and hors d’oeuvres. Stand Out Prints Juror Elizabeth Wyckoff will give brief remarks that evening at 7 pm.
