Part II of Boston printmaking exhibition to open at the Cantor Art Gallery

The Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Art Gallery, College of the Holy Cross will present the second installation of “re-Think INK: 25 Years at the Mixit Print Studio” from Nov. 7 through Jan. 31, 2014. An opening reception will take place on Thursday, Nov. 7 from 5 – 8 p.m. Catherine Kernan, one of the three principle partners of the studio, will give a talk in the gallery beginning at 5 p.m.

Mixit Print Studio, a Boston-area printmaking collaborative, was founded in 1987 in the former Mixit Soap Factory. Randy Garber, Jane Goldman and Catherine Kernan, studio partners and organizers of the exhibition, assembled a special portfolio of prints to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Mixit Print Studio.  A selection of prints and three-dimensional installation works which incorporate printmaking techniques into their construction were juried by Karen Shafts, assistant keeper of prints at the Boston Public Library.

Roger Hankins, director of the Cantor Art Gallery, worked with Susan Schmidt, professor of visual arts, to bring “rethink INK” to the College and the Worcester community.  Schmidt has worked at Mixit Print Studio for many years and her work is included in the exhibition. “Susan has taught printmaking courses here for many years and is an active and accomplished artist and printmaker who has inspired students to explore this medium,” says Hankins.

First shown at the Boston Public Library during the summer of 2012, the exhibition highlights works produced at this influential resource for artists living in the greater-Boston area in one of the premier intellectual and artistic printmaking communities. Comprised of 150 works from over 70 artists, “rethink INK” represents a wide range of ideas and approaches to fine art printmaking today.

Hankins is equally excited to present Part II of “rethink INK”, and says, “The work included in this second installation is as strong, if not more so, as the work that was shown in the first installation and visitors who come back will be glad they did.”
