Press It!

Box Mezzanine Gallery

In conjunction with Pulled, Pressed and Screened: Important American Prints, Piedmont Arts invites guests to take part in Press It!, an interactive community exhibition in the Box Mezzanine Gallery.

Members of Lynwood Artists designed and created hand-cut linoleum blocks, which guests can use to stamp a design directly onto the gallery wall. The resulting design will be a one-of-a-kind community-created print.

Pulled, Pressed & Screened: Important American Prints
Sep 13 through Nov 8, 2014
Hooker Garrett Gallery

This exhibition of 50 American prints surveys the activities of artists who put designs on paper during an exciting 50-year period from the 1930s to the 1980s.

Especially significant during this period are the contributions of women printmakers, as well as the impact of African American artists on the graphic arts. Combined with artists who immigrated to the United States during these decades and the increased numbers of painters and sculptors who took up printmaking, this exhibition makes the egalitarian nature of the print abundantly clear.

Pulled, Pressed and Screened: Important American Prints is drawn from the Syracuse University Art Collection holdings of more than 12,500 prints of which more than 7,500 are by American artists.

Includes prints by Grant Wood, Thomas Hart Benton, Milton Avery, Dorothy Dehner, Jasper Johns, Robert Motherwell, Andy Warhol, and Richard Estes, among others.
