On view by appointment February 1-25, 2022
Organized by University of Kentucky Professor David Wischer and Mirabo Co-Founder Rachel Shelton, Leave Quietly is a print exchange portfolio by 32 printmakers from around the world. Each artist is a participant in weekly conversations in the Printmakers Club on Clubhouse, an audio-only social media app.
Since March of 2021 the group has met each week with participants calling in from across the globe. Discussions involve troubleshooting & sharing technique advice, giving feedback on new prints, sharing opportunities & announcements... anything and everything print related is on the table.
Some members made their virtual experience tangible via one of the great printmaking traditions: a portfolio exchange. The resulting group of 32 prints comes from artists of all experience levels - Master Printers alongside artists just making their first linoleum cuts in their kitchens while chatting with the group on Clubhouse. The exchange presents a wide range of techniques, styles, and subjects, tied together only by a paper size requirement of 11x14 inches.
To do our best to ensure the safety of our visitors & staff, masks and proof of vaccination are required.
