Exhibition Description

June 3th– August 26th, 2022

The LUX Center for the Arts, in cooperation with Constellation Studios, will present ‘Surface Impressions,’ an ambitious exhibition focusing on hand-produced relief prints from woodblock, linoleum cut, wood engraving, and mixed media relief prints. This showcase will bring fine art prints to the fore, enabling Lincoln, the LUX Center for the Arts, and Constellation Studios to join in a world-wide conversation about creative innovations in prints. Surface Impressions intends to connect artists and audiences to the 21st century language of relief printmaking as a viable artistic engagement for today.

Seventy-four prints have been selected by Juror Sean Starwars. Fifty prints will be on display at the LUX Center for the Arts, and 24 will be on display at Constellation Studios. This biennial of relief prints here in the center of America will showcase artists from around the country and abroad, all selected from an open call for entries. The works on exhibition focus on the role of the relief print as a means of cultural critique and exploration of this ancient but newly invigorated discipline as practiced and defined by today’s artists.

Artist are welcome to attend the June 3, July 1, or August 5 First Friday exhibition receptions.
