THiNK SQUARE! brings together the work of fifty fine art printmakers from Tiger Lily Press and Northern Kentucky Printmakers, two organizations dedicated to the tradition of fine art printmaking.
Northern Kentucky Printmakers is a group of alumni and faculty that began as Northern Kentucky University Print Club. The group has been showing together for the last twenty-five years. (Our first show was at the Fort Thomas gallery where David Dalton, owner of the Think Shop and Red Hot Productions, mounted our first exhibitions, and later, to this site, previously called Gallery Zaum.)
Tiger Lily Press is a fine art printmaking studio located in Cincinnati and has been a printmaking collaborative for the last forty years. It is located in the Dunham Recreation area and is a nonprofit organization offering studio space and classes in printmaking disciplines. This is the first show to combine the talents of both groups in an exhibition of 5”x5” hand-pulled prints.
We dedicate this show to the memory of our dear friend and fellow printmaker, Margaret Lester, who was a student in the NKU Printmaking department and a dedicated Print Club participant for 25 years. Margaret was an inspiration to all of us with her talent, dedication and hard work, always being the first to complete work for our yearly shows. She attended most all of our workshops, never missed a class, and set a high standard for students who were many years her junior. Margaret was a strong and quiet presence in the print room and we miss her dearly.

Our show is based on tidbits of wisdom and foolishness popularized in our culture. We’ve taken well known sayings and turned them into prints. The opening reception is Friday December 13, 2013 at 5:30pm at the Carnegie Center for the Visual and Performing Arts. You can find us upstairs in the Duveneck Gallery. Show runs until February 14, 2014.
So They Say: Wisdom and Foolishness
Prints by Northern Kentucky Printmakers
Northern Kentucky Printmakers (formerly the Northern Kentucky University Print Cub) is comprised of alumni, students, faculty and friends of the Northern Kentucky University print department who have been making and exhibiting prints together for over 25 years. From its inception, the purpose of the group has been to engage alumni, current NKU printmaking students and faculty in creating new prints and exhibiting together. There are fifteen NKU Department of Visual Arts alumni and three current students in this show.
The NKU printmaking department has continually hosted visiting artists for lectures, demonstrations, and workshops in the NKU print room, supported by our member fundraisers. We regularly attend print conferences held each year by the Mid America Print Council and Southern Graphics Council International, where printmakers gather from all over the country to share techniques and current research on all facets of the printmaking discipline. The group currently has 27 active members.
We dedicate this show to the memory of Bonnie Mitsui, a patron and active member of our group for 15 years.

IN YOUR DREAMS at NKU’s 3rd Floor Main Gallery, that is. After numerous shows around the Cincinnati/NKY area, the Print Club of NKU applied (and was accepted) for a show in the very building where it began.
27 printmakers make up the club & this show, each hanging multiple works on the theme of dreams. We were inspired by poetry and music, and (sometimes) our very own dreams. The images that are currently hanging in the NKU gallery range from monotype to line etching, and many of them are hand altered/assembled, collage, or even painted upon. Each work includes some element of printmaking.

This show hangs in the gallery from Feb 14, 2013 until closing on March 8, 2013.
