An exhibit featuring artwork from the nation’s top printmakers will open on Thursday, Jan.15 in the Davis Gallery at Sawtooth School for Visual Art, 251 N. Spruce St.

Artlink’s 34th Annual National Print Exhibition, sponsored by Statesville-based Speedball Art Products Company, will run through Feb. 28.

Three North Carolina artists are included in the show: UNC-Wilmington Professor of Studio Art Donald Furst, John Bergmeier from Waxhaw and Brandon Sanderson from Pembroke.  All three of these printmakers will attend a public reception on Friday, Feb. 6 from 5 to 7 p.m. The exhibition and the reception are both free and open to the public, and all artwork is for sale.

The show includes 68 original, hand-pulled prints by forty-six artists from 19 states. Several print techniques ranging from monoprints, intaglio, lithographs and screen prints will be on display. The exhibition was juried by Christine Reising, professor of Art at Siena Heights University who completed her MFA in printmaking at the University of Windsor. Her diverse art practice includes costume and set design, site-specific installation, printmaking and book arts.

In conjunction with the show, Sawtooth is offering a print collage workshop on Saturday, Feb. 7 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with visiting artist Cynthia Beck, whose work is also featured in the Artlink show.
