Print/Counter-Print is an exhibition of prints that highlight works selected from the flat files of the Peregrine Press (Portland, ME) and Zea Mays Printmaking studios. Curated by Virginia Rose and exhibited in March 2012 at Rose Contemporary Gallery (Portland), the exhibition is a wonderful dialogue between two printmaking studios.

Commenting on the exhibition, curator Virginia Rose, director and owner of Rose Contemporary, states, “Creating within the framework of non-toxic practices has certainly not limited the technical expertise or the exciting experimentation happening at Peregrine and Zea Mays presses. In fact, this adherence has invigorated the investigation into new processes and discoveries of method and material. Individually, the works in this exhibition are widely varied in technique and subject matter. Viewed together, related themes and motifs emerge, generating a dialogue of print to counter print.”
