The show includes original fine art prints by artists from all over the US and abroad including Australia, Canada, China, England, and India. Invited artists representing diverse backgrounds and concepts cooperated in creating art about the idea of common space. Curators of this exhibition said, “We have all experienced certain spaces – interior and exterior space, social and cultural space, psychological and physical space, inner and outer, real and imagined. Space implies a rich multitude of things. A portfolio is one space that printmakers hold in common. This portfolio is a reflection of printmaking as a community of individual artists working in many directions within an interconnected network.”
