Under Pressure: The Print Exhibition

July 7 - July 27

VAE sought artists to submit works that had been created through any and all of the printmaking processes that utilize pressure.  Pressing ink into paper has served as a catalyst for reproducing ideas in both in text and image throughout history and VAE wants to show how artists are using these techniques today.
