Upcoming exhibition: “Recent Prints and Projects from Manneken Press”

The Wakeley Gallery at Illinois Wesleyan University, located in Bloomington, Illinois, will host the exhibition Recent Prints and Projects from Manneken Press, February 27 – March 30 2017.

The exhibition will include fine art prints and portfolios produced by an array of international artists at Manneken Press from 2014 to the present. A reception for the exhibition will be held in the gallery on March 2 from 5:00 – 6:00 pm.

The exhibition showcases Manneken Press, a fine art press and print publisher located in Bloomington, IL. The exhibition will include examples of contemporary printmaking, including etchings, aquatints, woodcuts, lithographs, photogravures, and portfolios, as well as unique monotypes and monoprints. Artists in the exhibition include Richard Hull, Judy Ledgerwood, Gary Justis, Mary Judge, Jack Davidson, Brenda Zappitell, Carlos Andrade, Kate Petley and Philip Van Keuren.

Highlights of the exhibition will include “Toward What Sun? Volume I”, a portfolio of ten photogravures by Dallas-based artist Philip Van Keuren, published in January of 2016, and “Untitled”, a mixed-media monotype by Columbian artist Carlos Andrade, published in November of 2016, in which vernacular materials such as plastic flags and string are incorporated into the print. The monotype by Brenda Zappitell will have been made only three weeks prior to the opening of the exhibition. Viewers will have the opportunity to see the work of artists from the local community (Gary Justis) and from as far away as Spain (Jack Davidson) and South America (Carlos Andrade). Though the primary focus of the exhibition will be abstraction, the exhibition will be a snapshot of current practices in printmaking, and viewers will have the chance to see contemporary works of art realized in traditional print media. “to open widows”, a concurrent exhibition by Bill Conger, will be in the adjacent Merwin Gallery.

The Merwin & Wakeley Galleries are located on the ground floor of the Ames School of Art building, Illinois Wesleyan University, Bloomington, IL.

On the occasion of Kate Petley’s current solo exhibition at Robischon Gallery, we are sharing three articles written about her work:

A just published review of the exhibition, an Artsy editorial from 2014, and an interview with the artist on the Vasari21 blog. Kate Petley has worked at Manneken Press, creating several monoprint series in 2013 and 2016 which can be viewed here.

Recent news: Kate Petley’s work was included in “Colorado Women in Abstraction” at the Metropolitan State University Center for Visual Art, Denver CO, curated by Michael Paglia; she was an artist in residence at the UCROSS Foundation in Clearmont, WY; and completed an invitational residency at Franz Mayer of Munich Glass Studio.

We just finished a new monotype project with Carlos Andrade.

A new series of mixed-media monotypes by Carlos Andrade.

Artist Carlos Andrade arrived at Manneken Press from his home in Cali, Colombia, just a few days after our return from the E/AB Fair. I have worked with Carlos at Manneken Press on several different monotype projects since 2009, and we were printing together as early as 1996 in my studio in New York. Carlos has always been interested in using vernacular materials in his paintings sculptures and installations, and we have previously incorporated materials such as color-xerox copies, printed religious ephemera, and synthetic meshes and fabrics into his prints. This time he arrived at Manneken Press with a bagful of festones, the colorful plastic triangular flags which are strung up in strands for street festivals in Central and South America, wanting to use them in his prints. He had flags in an array of transparent colors, which when overlapped, created interesting new colors.

After spending a day adhering the festones, with their strings still attached, to paper we had about 12 sheets to work with, ranging in size from 30″ x 22″ to 60″ x 44″. We spent the rest of the week printing and creating a new series of wonderfully textured, unusual and very typically “Andrade” monotypes.  Once the prints are dry and have been documented we will add them to the website.

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.
