Paint for Print Installation

Exhibition Dates: November 3 - December 19, 2008

Paint for Print is an exhibition of some of today’s leading professional illustrators who work in watercolor, acrylic and guache. In our digitized culture with its proliferation of vector images and photo illustrations, the paintings in Paint for Print are a reflection of the emotive quality present in hand painted artwork. The exhibition contains the work of over a half-dozen artists whose artwork shows the ways in which one image is able to represent everything from an entire novel to a major corporation.

The artists in Paint for Print are at the forefront of the recent resurgence in the popularity of illustration in visual communications. Their work has appeared in every major design and illustration review including; Communication Arts, HOW, The Society of Illustrators, and the book series Illustration Now.
