It is a special edition of the on-going Historic Elitch Theatre Academy Featured Artist Program which brings new exhibits every 2 or 3 months to 1101 W. Mineral Ave. in Littleton, CO.
The Print 1101 exhibit is open 10 a.m.-5 p.m., weekdays March 3 through April 30, with a ‘meet the artists’ reception from 6 to 9 pm on March 7, 2020. This exhibit includes some internationally recognized artists and some of the same printmakers who were accepted into the juried Mo’Print exhibitions, as well as some emerging student artists. It is the only Mo’Print exhibit scheduled in Littleton. The artists in this exhibit are: Judith Bennett, Theresa Davis, Margaret DeKoven, Cara Luneau, Cindy Marshall, Amy Martin, Yee Tseng, BJ Yost, D Leighton Yost and Bruce Zander.
The Month of Printmaking (Mo’ Print) is a biennial celebration of the art of making original, fine-art prints. By partnering with a critical mass of participating artists, galleries and other partners it serves to promote exhibits, workshops, demonstrations, and events that inspire, educate and promote awareness of this art form throughout the Denver area and Colorado. Events began in January but the focus is on events during March—the official month of celebration—with some extending into April. The first Mo’Print took place in 2014 with enthusiastic attendance, and is marking its 4th run, deferring, every other year to the comparable Month of Photography.
A full listing and calendar of Mo’Print exhibitions, workshops and events can be found at www.moprint.org .
