Recent, current and upcoming exhibitions by Manneken Press artists

Jonathan Higgins is exhibiting metalpoint drawings in point/line/shape/form, a 5-person exhibition at the McLean County Art Center in Bloomington, IL. The exhibition runs through February 18, with a reception for the artists on Friday, January 20, 5 – 7 pm.

Philip Van Keuren’s 2016 photogravure “Shrub II” is included in Idols And Impossible Structures: New Prints 2017/Winter at the IPCNY, 508 W 26th Street, 5th Floor, New York, NY. Exhibition dates are January 19 – April 1 2017, with an opening reception on Thursday January 19, 6 – 8 pm.

Kate Petley has a solo exhibition of paintings at Robischon Gallery, 1740 Wazee Street, Denver, CO. Show dates are January 12 – March 4, 2017.

A monotype by Sarah Smelser was included in the Nasty Women Exhibition, January 12 – 15th at the Knockdown Center, Maspeth, Queens, NYC. The show was “a group exhibition that serves to demonstrate solidarity among artists who identify with being a Nasty Woman in the face of threats to roll back women’s rights, individual rights, and abortion rights”. Proceeds from the show raised more than $35,000 to benefit Planned Parenthood. This exhibition was the first of at least twenty seven similarly themed and titled shows that will take place in venues across the United States and as far away as Brussels, Melbourne and Amsterdam in the coming months. The exhibition received a lot of press, including notices in the Huffington Post and Hyperallergic.

The 2016 Editions/Artist’s Books Fair has concluded.

After a whirlwind Print Week in New York City we are now back home and following up with the many interested collectors, curators, art consultants and gallerists who stopped in at our booth at the E/AB Fair. The fair included more than forty exhibitors from across the USA and from as far away as South Africa, showing contemporary prints, portfolios, artist’s books and unique paper works. Attendance at the fair was good, including over 1000 visitors at Thursday night’s VIP opening. We were pleased to be able to present all new work in our booth, created at Manneken Press over the past year by seven different artists.

Jack Davidson at THEODORE: Art

By | Jack Davidson, New project | No Comments
Jack Davidson is one of several artists included in the exhibition Deux Côtés / Two Sides at THEODORE:Art, Brooklyn, NY.

Jack Davidson, who lives and works in Barcelona, creates collages from torn, painted paper to which he adds elements such as Rorschach blots and metal leaf accents. These carefully considered compositions become the basis for his paintings. The exhibition at THEODORE:Art includes several of his collages. Exhibition dates are Sept. 9 – Oct. 17 2016.

Davidson also used collages as the basis for the monotypes he created at Manneken Press in April 2016.  Jack Davidson’s prints can be viewed here.

Manneken Press will be showing Davidson’s monotypes at the Editions/Artist Book Fair in New York, November 3-6.
