Guttenberg Arts Gallery is pleased to present Untrashed, an exhibition of new work by artist Rie Hasegawa. On view June 15th - July 21st, 2019 at Guttenberg Arts Gallery. The works included in Untrashed feature a mix of hand pulled prints and drawings that illuminate one of the most daunting issues facing the world: the mounting world trash crisis.

Hasegawa explains in her statement: “In recent years I have focused my art on social, environmental and political issues I feel the world needs to focus on. I am concerned for the well-being of animals/humans and resonate with their reactions to the chaos and struggles in this society. My message is simple - what goes around, comes around.” 

For 20 years Hasegawa has devoted her artistic practice to all forms of printmaking and has been the recipient of many awards and fellowships including the Purchase Award of “Parkside National Small Print Exhibition” in 2008. Her passion for printmaking techniques is multifold. Even though printmaking techniques continue to advance into the digital age, Hasegawa’s particular about hand-drawn and hand-pulled outputs rather than digital media... “The physical connection of my body to the prints allows for more direct expression and nuances during the creative process. It is also my belief that hand generated media is a more effective way of appealing to my audience.” 

Hasegawa’s work can be found in the collections of Yale University Art Gallery, New York Public Library, J. Japane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum among the others and various private collections. Hasegawa has also been featured in international newspapers and publications such as Carrier Pigeon Illustrated Fiction & Fine Art and Asahi Shimbun. Hasegawa currently works as a master printer at EFA RBPW and Atelier A/E New York and had taught various printmaking classes at Manhattan Graphic Center, New York Academy of Art and the education center at MoMA. As a master printer she has collaborated on editions and provided technical assistance to over 60 artists. Artist collaborators include Zarina Hashmi, Donna Diamond, Derek Fordjour and Alexandra Bell.

Opening Reception on Saturday June 15th, 7 - 9pm.  For more information please visit www.guttenbergarts.org/exhibitions or contact matt@guttenbergarts.org. Guttenberg Art Gallery is free and open to the public by appointment.
