Richard Levy Gallery is pleased to present The Print Show, a group exhibition of multiples by prolific contemporary artists who offer a sample of the broad range of printing techniques being used today. Screen printing, aquatint, lithography, die cut letter press, woodblock monotypes, and archival pigment prints are all represented in The Print Show.

Select highlights include: Polly Apfelbaum’s monoprint woodblock from the Atomic Mystic Portrait series. Each artwork from this series is crafted from a lexicon of 1500 hand-laid, mosaic-like blocks which are inked and printed in different combinations on heavy handmade paper making each print unique. John Baldessari’s Blueberry Soup (from the series Eight Soups), is a large multi colored screen print that summons both Warhol and Matisse.  A rare vintage aquatint by Anish Kapoor was created at Skowheagan and dates from early in the artist’s career. Ed Ruscha juxtaposes his iconic blocky text over an image of a looming mountain in his beautifully saturated lithograph, Sponge Puddle. Additional artists in The Print Show include works by Math Bass, Martin Creed, Julie Mehretu, Sean Scully, Thomas Ruff and Jonas Wood.

In the project room the gallery presents The Importance Of Packing A Lunch, an exhibition of small sculptures by Mick Burson made of wire, wood, clay and metal. Their small size comes from a necessity to make work while traveling internationally over an extended period of time. The sculptures are made out of the materials that would fit in a lunchbox and collected along the way. Burson’s sculptures are intuitive and simultaneously playful and poetic.
