For Mo'Print, Alto Gallery will be hosting a three-day pop-up group exhibition titled Letting Go.
Based on the theme of catharsis, artists prints will be displayed alongside their respective blocks for two days. On the final exhibition day, the blocks will be removed from the walls, destroyed, and documented. Prints will remain on display.
Although marking/destroying printing blocks is a common practice for many printmakers, many viewers don't know this, and as such may not understand the value of such an editioned print. Providing a demonstration en masse has the potential to educate, to motivate, and to be cathartic (for artists and viewers) while underlining the visual theme itself.
Event: March 23, 12:00 PM - Casual meetup where artists can carve blocks, exchange tips/techniques, and pull prints. Light refreshments. Open to the public.
