Free Radicals- Katherine E. Nash Gallery

I am in Minneapolis, working away on a piece for this exhibition.

WIP-The Fall

Free Radicals: Remixing History Through the Power of Print
February 23 – March 26, 2016

Program: Thursday, February 25, 2016 7:00 pm with Jenny Schmid & Tonja Torgerson
Reception: Thursday, February 25, 2016  8:00 – 10:00pm

Curated by Jenny Schmid, Professor of Art, and Howard Oransky, Director of the Katherine E. Nash Gallery, Free Radicals: Remixing History Through the Power of Print, considers the power of associative thinking and historical mash-ups in the print medium. Graphic media inherently offers artists the potential to remix or reference history. The artists in this exhibition discuss revolution and employ metaphor in sampling and in the free combination of history and politics that might be more limiting in other disciplines. The pursuit of free association may not appear to be directly activist, but the use of artistic license to draw on the subconscious may be a tool for the deconstruction of assumed paradigms.

Artists in the exhibition include Sandow Birk, Randy Bolton, Julie Buffalohead, Enrique Chagoya, Sue Coe, Wille Cole, Jim Denomie, Fred Hagstrom, John Hitchcock and Emily Arthur, Barbara Kruger, Michael Krueger, Glenn Ligon, Hung Liu, Emmy Lingscheit, Martin Mazorra, Kristin Powers Nowlin, Andrew Raftery, Robert Rauschenberg, John Risseeuw, Roger Shimomura, Lorna Simpson, Piotr Szyhalski, Tonja Torgerson, Ericka Walker, and Valerie Wallace.

Revolution Now at Gamut Gallery

Revolution Now

The Revolution Now exhibition, curated by Ash Marlene Hane and Angela Sprunger, acknowledges women who are creating change, locally or globally, known to many or known to a few. Their revolutions may be large and loud or slow and quiet, but their fight is now. Fourteen artists, including Hane & Sprunger, created new limited edition fine art prints for this show. Working in a variety of print media – including monoprint, relief and silkscreen – the collection introduces viewers to women from all over the world and in doing so encourages new dialogue and understanding.
