  Next Thursday, June 27 6-8pm is the opening reception of  Spring Chickens, Free Range , a show of the  ten artists from RISD’s 2013 Printmaking MFA program! It will be at David Krut Projects in Chelsea.   
  It’s gonna be a blast, hope to see you there!  
     
  Details:  
  Directions:   Please enter via 516 W. 26th St. (near 10th ave) and take the freight elevator to the 8th floor.     David Krut Projects is excited to present Spring Chickens, Free Range, a group exhibition of the ten artists emerging from Rhode Island School of Design’s MFA in Printmaking. The works on display champion traditional print methods while engaging an advanced multimedia approach. These ten artists - Paloma Barhaugh-Bordas, Kevin Frances, Amanda Hu, Genevieve Lowe, Jonathan Palmer, Diego Rodriguez-Warner, Saman Sajasi, Justin Sorensen, Cole Swavely and Elisabeth Walden - bring a fresh and active chorus and invigorate the conversation of contemporary printmaking.    Because of its characteristic traits, namely reproducibility, variability and the camaraderie it creates among artists, printmaking lends itself to social engagement, as the work in this exhibition proves. Whether tackling identity politics, consumerism, environmental collapse, systemic violence or spirituality, these artists use the conventions of print to identify and wrestle with the issues and powers that shape our lives. Of course, these issues are not boxed off cleanly, but rather create a network of connective tissue that runs through the exhibition. These artists and works come together through a deep social engagement with the world, and the struggle to find a form that reflects it.    Frances, Sajasi, Swavely and Walden examine how identity is created through gender, body size, ethnicity or environment. Palmer, Lowe and Barhaugh-Bordas explore the boundaries between natural and man-made environments. Hu and Frances investigate how environment reflects human identity by examining living spaces. And Rodriguez-Warner combines images from art history and pop-culture through a sophisticated formal language strongly influenced by relief printing. The work in this show represents not only an engagement with printmaking, but also the ways in which the qualities of traditional print media allows for a flexibility of style, form and content.

Kevin Frances also embraces everyday objects as his subject. The purity of material and directness of process that woodcut offers is reflected in the quiet simplicity of Karen, which figures a stack of shelves holding an artist’s paints and brushes.
