Our Skyline Print Exhibition

October 27, 2017 - November 11, 2017

creative session: Wednesday, October 18, 5-10pm
creative session: Tuesday, October 24, 6-10pm
Exhibition dates: October 27 – November 11, 2017
Our Skyline is a printing activity to honor Nebraska Statehood Sesquicentennial with creative responses to this theme.

Participants are invited artists, community members, students, who will each carve a linoleum block and make prints in response to the theme.

The theme invites responses and interpretations to the historic linoleum block print by noted Nebraska art teacher Gladys Lux created in the 1930’s of the Lincoln skyline with the state capitol building under construction. {This print will be hung in the gallery and included in the exhibition} We will similarly be influenced by Our Skyline in a myriad of approaches: views of our state capitol, downtown, local buildings, urban construction, iconic Nebraska landmarks, rural settings and structures, our open skies, nature silhouettes of trees and grasses, and conceptual ideas.

Participants are invited to join in onsite creative sessions at Constellation Studios, for mentoring and to carve the “easy-to-carve” lino blocks. Photo and graphic source images will be on hand for generating ideas, and artists can bring their own source images. Printing assistants will run the presses to print from the blocks during the sessions. Studio tools are available to use on site, and good quality paper for the impressions will be provided.

There is a $10 participation fee, which covers one linoleum block 8” x 10”, and two print impressions, one of which will be used for the exhibition, one will be for the artist to take.

RSVP for creative sessions, by phone or email, or online registration: www.constellation-studios.net
