Exhibit at Chandler Center for the Arts Gallery is all about printing

An upcoming exhibition of relief prints, monoprints and monotypes at the Chandler Center for the Arts Gallery will highlight works by regional and national artists who rely on the collaborative printmaking studio, Santo Press of Scottsdale. Santo Press: The First Eight Years, opens Oct. 13, 2017, and runs through Nov. 9, in the Gallery located at 250 N. Arizona Ave.
 
Santo Press was founded in May of 2009 by artist and Master Printer Brent Bond, and made possible by the acquisition of a fully restored 1961 printing press affectionately called, Victoria. To date, Santo Press has released 196 editions by 32 artists.
 
“These prints are colorful, emotional, poignant and thought-provoking. I cannot wait for people to see this exhibition at the gallery,” says Peter Bugg, visual arts coordinator at Chandler Center for the Arts Gallery. “With such a variety of artists participating, I think visitors will have a new appreciation for the diverse applications and outcomes of printmaking.”
 
The art featured in this exhibition runs the gamut from modern and bold to more subdued, nuanced work, reflecting the different styles and approaches of more than 25 artists.
 
The public is also invited to a reception with the artists from 6-8 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 2, at the Chandler Center for the Arts Gallery. The Gallery is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and noon to 5 p.m., Saturday. More information on the exhibit can be found at chandlercenter.org.
