Recently along with Elana Kundell, I have co-curated an exhibition that will soon open at the Studio Channel Art Galleries in Camarillo, CA. The galleries are the largest art galleries in Ventura County and are housed on the campus of California State University Channel Islands. A gorgeous building with neo-classical arches and columns that mystifies me every time, perhaps due to its elegance and the fact it was once a mental hospital. I am exciting to be filling the space with the work of other artists, my first excersion into the curation process.
The exhibition titled Print Matter(s): California Printmaking Now, presents the work of artists from across the state each using the media of printmaking in their work. The exhibition is presented as a somewhat survey giving a viewer a sense of the wealth of approaches both conceptually and formally artists are using in the print shop today. My next posts will be highlighting the work of the group of artists we selected and my reasons for including them in this show.
