Plains Art Museum is pleased to announce To See What I Could See: An Examination of Contemporary Printmaking from our permanent collection. The prints in this exhibition relate and connect to one another through the avenues of formalism, collaboration, narration, and process. Conceptually simple – creating multiples of an image through a printing press – printmaking is technically complex and offers artists and audiences with unique results that can only be achieved through the myriad of printmaking processes. By focusing on contemporary prints, this exhibition allows for us to see inside the realms of aesthetic and theory, and also provides a glimpse inside the processes that often mystify and intrigue viewers.
To See What I Could See: An Examination of Contemporary Printmaking is curated by Plains Art Museum Manager of Hannaher’s, Inc. Print Studio Manager Amanda Heidt with support from Museum Director Andy Maus, Associate Curator of Exhibitions & Collections Tasha Kubesh, Director of Curatorial & Operational Logistics Steve Jacobs, Associate Registrar Kaitlin Molden, and installation team member Tessa Wick. We would like to give a special thank you to artist DeborahMae Broad for giving permission to use the title of her etching as the title for this exhibition.
