The Hite Art Institute is pleased to present Catalog: New Work from the Printmakers Left. On view at the Cressman Center for Visual Arts December 3-January 7, 2022. Catalog brings together the most recent work from The Printmakers Left, a collaborative team working together for twenty years on a series of exhibitions, publications, and installations. Having published the book Hinterlands in 2015—a work which examines our vast, expanding, and strangely overlooked human spaces and landscapes of the 21st century—as a field guide of sorts, The Printmakers left now present their fieldwork: deep studies and sensory explorations of landscape, plant behaviors, native pigments, and the unobvious complexities of the natural and built worlds around us. The work is not about efficiencies or extraction of resources—real and imagined—but rather an inquiry meant to uncover clues, prompts, and guides for how to  navigate future environments and extremes.

An opening reception for Catalog will be held Friday December 3, from 5-8 PM at the CCVA. This event is free and open to the public. We hope you will join us!

Artists participating in Catalog include: Anne Beck; David Bendernagel; Berenika Boberska; Maggie Booth; Dana Giacofci Clark ; Patrick Costello; Joshua Dailey; Dean Dass; Kate Daughdrill; Lydia Diemer; Dana Giacofci; Jenny Harp; John Hastings ; Kirsten Hemrich; Emma Lappalainen; John Leahy; Rachel Livedalen; Jyrki Markkanen; Lydia Moyer; Akemi Ohira; John Schulz; Rachel Singel; Marc Snyder; Randall Stoltzfus; Maggie Sullivan; Barbara Campbell Thomas; Christopher Thomas; Annu Vertanen; Adam Wolpa
