Fresh Ink Juried Print Show
ON VIEW AUGUST 26, 2016 – OCTOBER 23, 2016
Hot off the press! This Final Friday, join Wonder Fair as we feature the work of 21 hot-blooded, inky-finger'd, muscly-armed printmakers at Fresh Ink, our third annual juried print show. Fresh Ink is a manifestation of Wonder Fair's foundational purpose: to establish Lawrence as a preeminent center for creative print culture in the United States and to highlight the importance of printed matter in the world entire.
This year's submission pool was our biggest yet: 92 artists in 32 states and 3 countries (!!) sent in their work, for a total of 273 submissions. Guest juror and printmaker extraordinaire Katie Baldwin selected just 21 choice pieces for the final show. Join us Friday for fresh--and possibly inky--drinks, celebration, and to find out which work was selected as Best in Show to receive a $250 cash prize! For this special opening night celebration, Wonder Fair welcomes Decade Coffee shop proprietor Louis Wigen-Toccalino, crafting a limited edition of specialty printmaker cocktails (signed and numbered, naturally!).
