Recap: The Print Blitz & Parade of Flags


The squeaking of squeegees as they ran across a fine mesh screen, over and over again, filled the air with a playful, cartoonish feeling. While the smell of ink lingered in the lower half of the gallery, residency guest artists John Hitchcock and Emily Arthur, with the help of Ryan O'Malley and Marwin Begaye were screen-printing the many images that were to be used during the Air, Land, Seed exhibition. 516 ARTS in partnership with the NPN/Visual Artists Network has started its first ever residency program, beginning with this exhibition. - Ben Tobias
