East coast style meets Midwest sensibility in Broad Shoulders and Brotherly Love, a group exhibition of print-based works sampling the archives of two of the most highly respected national non-profit organizations dedicated to innovative techniques and concepts in print media. Both Anchor Graphics (Chicago) and Philagrafika (Philadelphia) selected an outstanding variety of work from the other’s residency program or invitational portfolio collection. This exhibition is held in conjunction with Global Implications, the 2009 Southern Graphics Council Conference happening March 25-29, 2009 at Columbia College Chicago. Digital, silkscreen, and woodcut prints, lithographs, engravings, linocut collages, printed paper constructions, and smoked paper prints presented in this show demonstrate the experimental trends in printmaking today.
