Link & Pin Gallery presents "Viscosity" opening day
As part of Print Austin 2019, Link & Pin Gallery will present "Viscosity," a visual art exhibition featuring hand pulled prints by 24 self-identified female artists of varying ethnic backgrounds from around the United States, Canada and Finland. A term often used in the print studio, viscosity refers to the degree of ink's resistance to flow, or its ability to adhere to a surface. In this exhibition, the term functions as a metaphor for the shifting status of women in the field of print. The increase of women in print has not yielded an equitable space for the female voice within this arena. Viscosity is a declaration against marginalization.
"Viscosity" consists of work by each by the following artists: Judith Baumann, Katherine Brimberry, Marissa Cartagena, Deborah Chaney, Veronica Ceci, Candice Corgan, Ana Cortez, Maria Erikson, Jill Graham, Rachel Heberling, Maggie Lomeli, Elizabeth Melnyczuk, Jack Michael, Ashley Ortiz-Diaz, Angela Pilgrim, Kathryn Polk, Jessica Robles, Zeinab Saab, Kristin Sarette, Beth Sheehan, Lyla Shlon, Klaire Smith, Bryn Sumner, Ashley Taylor and Erika Walker.
The exhibit will be on display through February 17. There will be a reception with artist talk by Jack Michael on February 9 from 6-8 pm.
