This exhibition seeks to highlight the dynamism of print media through the eyes of African , and African-American printmakers.
Printmaking, an ever-evolving media, has a long tradition of printmakers of color like Bob Blackburn, John Muafangejo, Elizabeth Catlett, Leon Hicks, Howard Smith, Dox Thrash and others.
In this quest, this exhibition seeks to uncover the artist’s perspective of the world around them through technique and context. These artists are unique in their approach of printmaking, which lends to opening the “eyes” of the viewer and their soul.
Eyes are said to be the “windows of the soul” thereby these same eyes of an art maker capture the essence of what surrounds them daily.
