Demystifying Process: A PVDPrintmakers Exhibition is on view in the WaterFire Arts Center gallery from Thursday, January 19 through Sunday, February 26, 2023 with an opening reception on Thursday, January 19 from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m.

This event is free and open to all.

Demystifying Process, is a month-long exhibition curated by PVDPrintmakers. Despite the accessibility offered by printmaking, both in its ability to endlessly reproduce images and the direct process of creating an impression, the practice tends to have an air of mystery. Using the vibrant printmaking community in Rhode Island as examples, this exhibition pulls back the curtain on a wide range of processes. Materials, presses, blocks and plates are displayed alongside prints, celebrating every step of the printmaking process while highlighting the often unseen act of making.

In addition to the opening event, printmakers and community members are invited to participate in networking event that will take place on Thursday, February 23 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Visitors are also invited to two printmaking demonstrations, woodcuts with Serene Lincoln on Thursday, February 16 from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. and monotype with Elliot Morgan on Saturday, February 18 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
