(Guttenberg NJ) Guttenberg Arts Gallery presents “The Human Condition”, a group exhibition of work featured in the recent portfolio produced by Paper Crown Press. The prints were created by 13 printmakers who since 2010 have worked together on sustaining Paper Crown Press’ premiere publication Carrier Pigeon: Illustrated Fiction and Fine Art. “The Human Condition” exhibition will run from February 16th - March 23rd with an opening reception Saturday, February 16th, 7pm - 9pm.
The theme of the portfolio and exhibition is a reflection on encounters, wanting, loss, looking within and the influences of the outside. Artists Matt Barteluce, Slavko Djuric, Kirsten Flaherty, Stephen A. Fredericks, Rie Hasegawa, Ellen Peckham, Christina Pumo, Susan Rostow, Justin Sanz, Russ Spitkovsky, Evan Summer, Rob Swainston and Bruce Waldman were requested to create an edition of 20 prints concerning the theme to an 11" x 15" plate size. The impressions were printed on 15" x 20" sheets of Arnhem 1618 and vary from traditional to modern printmaking techniques.
