Transitioning between February and March - as well as from winter to spring - will bring about many changes in the region. Exciting things are happening at The Art Center in Dover.

About to conclude an international printmaking show and transition to local artists in residence, the art center is adapting to in-person restrictions by offering virtual viewings of the show!

“Printmaking at the Edge” is a diverse print show that will soon be coming down at the center. Curated by submissions from all over the world, it is a multi-faceted collection of not only artists, but the use of paper and typically 2D media into 3D realms utilizing creative solutions. Some of the pieces are sculptural, others require a black light to see hidden patterns within, the featured photo, “Introduction” by Brian Knoerzer, is a print on textural paper handmade by the artist, lending deeper nuance to seeing this piece in
person.

Luckily, if you can’t make it to the show before it closes - which is at the end of February - you can still see it virtually online.

In our new day & age, responding to quarantine parameters, it’s astounding to see local businesses adapt to the changing needs of our society.

The art center is rising to these changes by offering the experience of these unique pieces from the comfort of your own home. Click this link for their virtual gallery.

Shortly after the print show will be taken down and returned to the original artists, there will be a local curation celebrating a year’s long work culminating for the artists in residence at the center.

The exhibition will feature three artists who have each completed a four-month residency. The show will include a collection of their work created during their time at The Art Center. Artists include Sara Cassini, Lili Un and Rebecca Klementovich.

The Art Center will soon be receiving applications for their next cycle of artists in residence. It is notable that they have reconstructed the space to include print presses and will be offering workshops shortly.

The next one starts March 6 called “Printmaking on Textile” instructed by Resident Printmaker Sally Dion. Visit their website for updated information and class schedules
or stop by for a visit at the Washington Street Mills - 1 Washington Street, Suite 1177 in downtown Dover.
