From Here to There: Printmaking in Alabama

April 21-June 24

From Here to There: Printmaking in Alabama explores the work of five artists from around the state – Derek Cracco, Sarah Marshall, Scott Stephens, Andrew Kozlowski, and Amy LeePard – who use innovative printmaking techniques in their work.

Whether employing monotype, letterpress, or lithography, each artist uses their medium in new and interesting ways, incorporating aquatint and hand coloring to execute their work. The artists represented in this exhibition focus on a variety of subjects including language and communication, architecture, nature, and biology. As an example of Alabama’s excellence in art, the exhibition includes traditional works on paper, art books, and wallpaper installations.

From Here to There was organized by the Wiregrass Museum of Art in recognition of the unique contributions of Alabama artists. In the years 2017-2019, Alabama is hosting statewide events in celebration of the state’s bicentennial. WMA will be observing this by hosting exhibitions and programs that highlight the accomplishments of Alabama artists.
