There’s something about printmaking that’s a little more assertive, more authoritative than other forms. Whether you’re printing on a Goss M-600 or a hand press in the basement of Read’s, prints can’t help be strong images, suitable for our tough little city.
“Bridgeport Prints: An Exhibition of Original Printmaking” opens at the Bridgeport Arts and Cultural Council with a reception 5-7 p.m. Thursday, May 12. You have until June 23 to see what James Reed, a master printer and artist, selected for the show.
Emerging and established artists who live or work in Bridgeport are in the mix. They include: Roland Becerra, Kelly Bigelow Becerra, Thurston Belmer, Janine Brown, Karen Brussat Butler, Richard Byrnes, Helen Cantrell, Ann Chernow (her work shown here), Alberta Cifolelli, Xenia Fedorchenko, Andre Junget, Kate Larocca, James Meyer, Gus Moran, Brechin Morgan, Misty Morrison, Andrew Murdoc, Perry Obee, Yolanda Petrocelli, Ronnie Rysz, Nomi Silverman, Tyson Skross, Liz Squillace and Michael Torlen
