Curated by Ruth Santee, Dixie Laws and TaVee Lee

Transmission Gallery presents work by printmakers affiliated with Sacramento’s print making studio, Myrtle Press!

Artists include Chaitra Bangalore, Donna Brown, Emily Chatusripitak, Elizabeth Corkery, Roger Ewers, Barbara Hennelly, Joanna Kidd, Dixie Laws, the Mayor, Vera McBride, Graham McDougal, Jazel Munoz, Eliot Olson, Ruth Santee, Susan Silvester, ​Nikki Thompson, Summer Ventis, and Sandy Fong Whetstone.

Myrtle Press printmakers work in a wide variety of techniques, creating editioned works and monoprints in a shared Sacramento printmaking studio.  Selected from the affiliated artists, subject matter ranges from the Roger Ewer’s traditional rowboat on a river, to the whimsical, in works by Susan Silvester and Sandy Fong Whetstone, to the experimental, in works by Elizabeth Corkery and Nikki Thompson, and more.

Fans of printmaking, and those new to considering it, can enjoy lithography, letterpress, linocut, reduction woodblock, screen printing and etchings, comparing concept, subject matter and technique. A snake swims in a swimming pool, a woman pets an octopus, wildfire ash flocks oil based ink. Elegant, thoughtful, wry, powerfully pink or humorous, see the work in IMPRINTED at Transmission Gallery through May 22nd.

Regular gallery hours: Fridays and Saturdays, noon to 5 pm. Masks and distancing required in Alameda County venues.
