The Unity of Opposites

It all started with a quote: “everything exists at once with its opposite” – Milton Glaser

Two artists, one from Zea Mays Printmaking and another from the Peregrine Press (Portland, ME), created prints inspired by the quote. Once completed, the two prints were sent to another three artists from each of the organizing studios, those six prints to 19 other artists until 75 artists had responded to each other over the course of five months. Each new “generation” of artists made their original print inspired by anything from the previous generation’s pieces, be it a subject matter, mood, color, the quality of a line, or a combination of many aspects of the pieces.

The final 75 prints will be exhibited at the A.P.E. Gallery in Northampton, MA. from October 4 – 30, 2016 with a reception on October 14, 5-8 PM and again at the Institute of Contemporary Art Gallery at Maine College of Art in Portland, ME. from February 1 – March 4, 2017 with a reception on February 3, 5-8 PM.
