Nine artists from the region were invited to design and carve their own large woodblock for printing impressions at Constellation Studios, which took place in May with one-by-one printing sessions at the studio. The 9 large 24” x 36” black and white prints will make a composite Artwork that will be wheat-pasted around Lincoln. The presentation will be 108” tall x 72” wide. Sites include: Lux Art Center, Constellation Studios, The Hub Cafe, The Mill Haymarket, Bennett Martin Library, Bethany Library, Woods Park Bath House, Joyo Theater, Goldenrod Pastries. #NineNebraskaArtists
The Artwork is a temporary installation, with the
paper prints attached with wheat starch (wallpaper) paste to the wall surface.
The installation will be affected by weather and moisture, lasting for
approximately 2 months, and will be allowed to change, as part of the ephemeral
nature of the materials, the climate conditions, and time.
Nine different sites are planned, and will present
engagement for different viewing audiences and experiences, plus create a
recurrent connection throughout the city.
These woodblock prints are unusually striking
for the strong contrast of dark and light, the captured energy of the carving
marks, and the variety of images and symbols that convey timely messages and
layers of meaning.
A culminating event will be steamroller
printing of these blocks for the Lux Art Center Festival in August. Other artists are invited to join with
additional carved woodblocks for the steamroller printing activity. Watch for more info.
This community-wide print event is a facet of this summer’s collaborative exhibition Surface Impressions: International Print Exhibition, and highlights the relief printing process. The exhibition is held jointly at Constellation Studios and Lux Art Center.
