"Political Impressions"

June 8, 2018 - August 11, 2018 @ 
Bevier Gallery, 73 Lomb Memorial Dr, Rochester, NY 14623, USa

Looking to printmaking’s long history as a vehicle for contentious dialog, Political Impressions will add another chapter in the tradition of artists such as William Hogarth, Thomas Nast, and Jean-Jacques Grandville who taught us ways to say what could not be said. This juried exhibition invites participants to examine current social and political issues through the use of symbolism and satire, wit and whimsy while avoiding anything too “on the nose.” Open to all printmaking methods and political persuasions this exhibition will be a diverse, playful, and thought-provoking experience of laughing through the tears in our turbulent world.

Juror:

Director, Contemporary Prints & Drawings
