The Full Court Press North American Juried Print Exhibition will open on Thursday, Oct. 5, at 5 p.m. at the Islander Art Gallery as a part of the FCP Printmaking Symposium. The FCP Print Symposium, which runs Wednesday, Oct. 4, through Saturday, Oct. 7, is four days celebrating the diversity and connectivity of print media. 70 works were chosen by Margaret Simpson and Tom Druecker of Slugfest Printmaking Workshop and Gallery in Austin, and the show will run through November 1st. A full list of participating artists as well as more information about the symposium can be found here.
Next Wednesday, Blackburn 20/20 Studio will be hosting a pop-up fundraising exhibition to benefit the NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council) and Sean Casey Animal Rescue (SCAR). I am showing work in the exhibition which features over 75 artworks priced at $200 and under. If you live in NYC, please make an effort to see this exhibition and help out two great organizations.
