From the Lite Box Website:

Lite Box Gallery will exhibit this show from January 14 through February 26 in the ArtFolk space at the Young & Vann Building in downtown Birmin…gham, Alabama. The show will be one of the largest exhibits of its kind in the state, featuring more than 30 Alabama artists who are exploring the increasingly popular medium of printmaking. Featured artists include many of Alabama’s most talented printmakers as well as emerging artists.

Printmaking can take many forms, from colorful screenprints and bold block prints to the delicate lines of intaglio and the nostalgic look and feel of letterpress. Visitors to “First Impressions” will see examples of each type of printmaking and gain insight into the different artistic processes, including the new frontier of digital printmaking. In addition, weekly workshops, demonstrations, and artist talks will enable the public to experiment with printmaking and make their own art pieces.
