RELIEF from Pyramid Atlantic

An exciting group of local and national printmakers have been assembled to share relief prints full of joy, fun, and beauty. RELIEF is a show of meticulously crafted prints that evoke escapism. The show’s title is an intentional word play on the style of work and also what the exhibit hopes to provide during a period of extreme stress and anxiety.

FEATURING WORKS BY: Daniella Napolitano (AR), Heather O’Hara (PA), Johanna Mueller [CO], Juan Esparza (MD), Jun Lee (VA), Kill Joy (TX), Lili Arnold (CA), Lilibet Wenge (MD), Melissa Harshman (GA), Nick Martinez (CA), Nicole Parker (MD), Rob Lindsay (VA), Santo Press (AZ), Tugboat Printshop (PA).

On view in Pyramid Atlantic's gallery February 27–April 4, 2021.
