Think BIG Prints

Wednesday, September 11 – Saturday, October 24

This exhibition, curated by Community Outreach Coordinator Melanie Finlayson and Exhibition Manager Kathryn Andree, features work from artists that have participated in past BIG INK printmaking workshops. This exhibition features 37 artists from around the United States, including ten artists from North Carolina. The prints range in size from 2 x 3 ft., up to 4 x 8 ft.

BIG INK, founded in 2012 by Lyell Castonguay and Carand Burnet, and based in Newmarket, New Hampshire, provides opportunities for large-scale woodblock printing workshops in host institutions. BIG INK’s mission is to inspire a greater public appreciation of large-scale woodblock printmaking and to extend its practice as an artistic discipline.

This exhibition is in conjunction with a printmaking workshop to be held in the Owens Gallery October 23 and 24. While visitors will not be allowed to view the printing in person, the workshop will be streamed on Instagram Live by BIG INK, @biginkprints. Twenty local artists and students will collaborate to carve woodblocks to be printed on BIG INK’s “The Big Tuna,” their large-scale, traveling printing press.

Information about BIG INK can be found at www.bigink.org. Please contact Community Outreach Coordinator Melanie Finlayson at melanie@toeriverarts.org for more information.
