Theo Ganz Studio is pleased to present Prints Without Pixels, a group exhibition curated by Hiro Ichikawa. The opening reception is Nov. 10 from 6 to 8 p.m., and the show runs through Dec. 30.
The printmakers are Rica Bando, Elana Goren, Takuji Hamanaka, Hiro Ichikawa, Gwenno James, Maria Lago, Thom Munterich, Chantelle Norton, Antonella Piemontese, Barbara Smith Gioia and Beth Weintraub.
Hiro Ichikawa is an artist who lives and works in Beacon, and his work includes oil paintings, watercolors and etchings. He currently runs the Print Club at Garrison Art Center every Sunday afternoon. His current exhibition of oil paintings and watercolors, Scapes, is on view at Scott and Bowne Fine Art in Kent, Conn. through Nov. 18.
With rapid advances in computer technology, computer-generated images are filling up gallery walls quickly. Yet there are artists still making prints without pixel-generated colors and lines, using traditional printmaking methods such as woodcut, etching, lithograph, silkscreen, stencils, etc.
Many of the artists on exhibit speak to the accidental and unexpected qualities inherent in the process of preparing, inking and wiping their plates and/or transferring and pressing their images.
Theo Ganz Studio is located at 149 Main St. in Beacon. Studio hours are Friday-Sunday 11 – 6 and by appointment at 917-318-2239. For further information, please visit their website, theoganzstudio.com.
