It’s called EX­TREMEs and it will fea­ture 76 prints by 30 artists that ex­am­ine the theme of ex­tremes, with by size or the­matic ex­plo­ration such as weather, pol­i­tics or the hu­man con­di­tion. Artists tak­ing part in­clude Tina Arse­nault, Sara AvMaat, Bon­nie Baker, Diana Bald­win, Mark Bovey, Diane Car­doso, Cecil Day, Maria Do­er­ing, Suzanne Gau­thier, Han­nah Genosko, Kate Ge­or­gal­las, Car­los Comez, Bob Hain­stock, Dyan Hatanaka, Erin Holling­shead, Car­loe Liu, Deb­o­rah Mau­rer, Bob Morouney, Tony My­ers, Linda Oickle, David Power, Diane Rosati, Julie Ros­vall, Tam­sin Sloots, Anna Syperek, Kristina Ver­meulen, Sally War­ren, and Charley Young.

Each piece within the show ex­plores pat­tern and tex­ture, and all have that some­times in­tan­gi­ble fac­tor, that nat­u­ral fit.

The prints on dis­play use a va­ri­ety of fine print­mak­ing techiques, in­clud­ing soft ground etch­ings, relief prints of found ob­jects, linocut prints, lithog­ra­phy, and so­lar plate etch­ings.

“In­tan­gi­ble” fea­tures the work of Bon­nie Baker, Mel­lisa Char­be­neau, Cecil Day, Maria Do­er­ing, Suzanne Gau­thier, Jay Le­blanc, Meg­gie Richards, Julie Ros­vall, and Charley Young.
