Prints Byte Exhibition

I delivered several of my large-scale collages from the Milagros series today to SomArts Cultural Center in San Francisco for an exhibition opening this Friday, February 5. Curated by Hanna Regev and Justin Hoover, the show is called "Prints Byte" and examines the cutting edge of printmaking today.

It was exciting to walk into the expansive space "under installation." I arrived as Justin was hanging Enrique Chagoya's art - prints that had been converted to lush textured tapestries. Several large installation pieces had already gone up including a magnificent waterfall piece constructed of probably 100 small abstract blue prints by Seiko Tachibana. I look forward to seeing the work altogether on Friday night at the reception.
