The new Screenprint Biennial is on display

2018 Screenprint Biennial Opalka Gallery

That fun installation hanging from the ceiling is a work called "Sistema" by Sheila Goloborotko. It's screenprinted, hand-cut mylar.

We got a chance to stop by the 2018 Screenprint Biennial that just opened at the Opalka Gallery on the Sage Albany campus. Blurbage:

The 2018 Screenprint Biennial seeks to showcase a range of screenprint-based art applications, from framed editioned prints to installation, sculpture, video, ephemera, and posters. This exhibition will in no way seek to act as a survey or "who's-who" of screenprinting, but will assemble an exhibition that is consistent in highlighting artists who utilize adventurous, relevant, and passionate takes on the screenprinted medium.

The exhibit is curated by Nathan Meltz. It's on display through December 14.

The opening reception is today (Friday) from 6-8 pm.

And the Screenprint Symposium this Saturday, November 3. It includes a juror's tour, discussions, an open portfolio sessions. Tickets are $20 ahead, $25 day of, $10 for students with valid ID (that includes admission, morning snacks, and lunch).

Steamroller Print Day
To go along with the Screenprint Biennial, there's a "Streamroller Print Day" November 10 at the armory building next door. "Participants will ink and print oversized, hand-carved woodblocks under the drum of a 2-ton steamroller."

The Scoop

For a decade All Over Albany was a place for interested and interesting people in New York's Capital Region. It was kind of like having a smart, savvy friend who could help you find out what's up. AOA stopped publishing at the end of 2018.
