The Atlanta Printmakers Studio inaugurated the Atlanta Print Biennial last year. It sophomore version, at Barbara Archer Gallery‘s temporary home in Erickson Clock, affirms it as a significant addition to the community. The quality, creativity and diversity speaks to the rich potential of the medium. The single requirement that artists use at least one hand-pulled printmaking process hardly limited these artists, whose contributions include sculptures and tapestry as well as works on paper and just about any technique you can imagine. Beauvais Lyons, Chancellor’s Professor at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, was the juror.
We offer you this holiday feast — a gallery of the award-winning pieces — and invite you to visit our Facebook page for more tastes of this broad-ranging exhibit.
The gallery is open noon to 5 p.m., Wednesdays-Saturdays, through December 7, except for Thanksgiving Day.
