Continua features two and three-dimensional explorations in various printmaking techniques by Ink Shop Kahn-Family Fellow, Scout Dunbar. An extension of her previous June show entitled Heaven and Earth at The State of the Art Gallery, Ms. Dunbar aims to explore various printmaking processes in an effort to create micro and macrocosms. Her images examine the interconnectedness of histories and time, while raising to question human’s sense of self, and our attempt to control and comprehend the un-known.
This exhibit is the first in a two part exchange of work between the Ink Shop Printmaking Center of Ithaca, NY and EFA Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop Program in NYC
The Ink Shop Printmaking Center's Annual Members' Exhibit features Ink Shop artists exploring many varied printmaking techniques. The Ink Shop has developed a solid reputation for providing professionally curated exhibitions. We have shown artists/printmakers from all over the world and been invited to show our work nationally and internationally, as far away as Japan. Our popular classes, taught by members, include intaglio, etching, lithography, bookbinding, wood cut and screen printing. Come June and July and explore our exhibit of over twenty member artists.
This exhibition is a portfolio exchange project between 15 artists from both
The Limerick Printmakers in Limerick, Ireland and
The Ink Shop Printmaking Center in Ithaca, NY.

Both studios were founded in 1999 and are not-for-profit printmaking centers that offer professional facilities for making fine art prints, an exhibition gallery and educational programs. We work with heavy equipment (presses), inks and unusual tools, often leading us to creative experimentation and sharing within the studio.
Today's independent printmaking centers provide a home for artists who practice this unique form of visual expression. The supportive environment of the print centers provides exchange of artistic ideas and educates the public about printmaking and its intriguing processes. We practice the traditional methods of printmaking, such as etching, lithography, woodcut, linocut and silkscreen, as well as experiment with contemporary techniques, materials and tools.
From this visual continuity comes a sense of community, with a single, composite horizon connecting pieces originated from different corners of the world.

No Land Escapes curated by Barbara McPhail
Reception Fri, Mar 1, 2013 Feb 1 - Mar 29, 2013
No Land Escapes is an exhibit by six artists from NY State and Wisconsin whose work speaks to the environmental, health, and social issues of continued fossil fuel development.
Pamela Drix | Elizabeth Durand | Craig Mains
Barbara McPhail | Teri Power | Kathleen Sherin
The artists’ viewpoints feature many facets of the fossil fuel development issue, including the changed landscape, the potential of toxicity, related water issues, the beauty of the landscape pre-drilling, and spiritual references embodied in Native American ideas of preservation and protection of the earth. The stories told in the images are informative, heartbreaking and hold this self-evident truth; no landscape involved in fossil fuel development escapes impact.
The exhibit includes printmakers featuring unusual scale, sculptural print combinations, innovative and traditional techniques, and artists from varied geographic locations.
All exhibits made possible with help from the Community Arts Partnership
and special support for this exhibit by the Puffin Foundation

"Pictorial references may seem familiar but are intentionally abstracted and remain elusive. Textured and layered imagery raises issues of memory, history, acquisition of knowledge, the transformation of information, and the ultimate mystery that underlies nature despite our elaborate attempts to create meaning.
Marks, the incising of lines, scrapings and fissures serve as a window into the life of materials, but also create a progressive history of alterations of the surface. The intimacy of the small-scale prints suggests notebook pages and imaginary diagrams, or cosmologies, and speaks to human efforts to discover new layers of reality beneath the surface of our everyday world. Some of the prints use appropriated imagery from scientific diagrams or microscopy. In more recent prints I have been seeking to free the line from the representation of forms, and use it to create atmosphere and space. There is a sp
ecific energy to each mark and line that can create a sense of fluidity and open-endedness, leading the viewer to multiple interpretations of the imagery."
