Artist member Matina Marki Tillman will exhibit several prints in three upcoming national exhibitions that will showcase some of her most recent work.
Figuratively Speaking, an exhibition devoted exclusively to the human figure and portraiture, will open at the Customs House Museum in Clarksville, Tennessee on May 7th and will run through July 13th (opening reception May 9th). This show will present a collection of artwork across all media representing the human figure. The Woodstock School of Art in New York will host The Print Show, an exhibition of hand-pulled prints created using black ink only. This show will open April 26th and run through May 31st (opening reception April 26th, 3-5 pm). Finally, Bite, Scratch, and Expose: New Printmaking is an exhibition that will celebrate the art of printmaking in all forms, with an emphasis on work that embodies experimental or innovative methods. This show will be held at the Morean Arts Center in St. Petersburg, Florida, a complex of multiple galleries housed in four buildings in downtown St. Petersburg. This exhibition will run from May 10th to June 29th (opening reception May 10th, 5-8pm).
Two of Matina’s newest prints that will be included in these exhibitions are shown here: “They don’t let Carmen dance,” and “End of conversation.” Both of these are solarplate etchings created by direct etching of charcoal drawings on vellum onto solarplates. Several prints from this series, including these most recent works, will also be on display in WPG’s main gallery in the coming months.
