LBCC SSH Gallery Features Cascade Print Exchange IX

An exhibit of prints from Oregon State University’s Cascade Print Exchange IX, will be shown through April 24 in the South Santiam Hall Gallery of Linn-Benton Community College, 6500 Pacific Blvd SW, Albany.

The 105 prints on display are from this year’s Cascade Print Exchange. Because of their multiplicity, prints are often traded from artist to artist. Print exchanges foster a communication of ideas, explore others’ techniques as well as give a chance to form a connection between artists who have never met one another before.

Each artist in the CPE IX submitted his or her image in an edition of 15 identical 5 x 7 inch prints. The prints were created with relief, intaglio, lithography, serigraph or any combination of those techniques.

In exchange, each participating artist will receive a portfolio of 13 randomly selected prints for their collection and a catalogue with images of all the submitted prints. After the LBCC show, the exhibit will travel to River Gallery in Independence from May 5 to June 5.

The print exchange is sponsored by OSU Alumna, Joyce Dickerson. She has most generously been an annual contributor to the OSU printmaking program. Without her support, the CPE IX would not have happened.

The South Santiam Hall Gallery is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
