The title is a reference to the action of printmaking as well as the sense of an artist’s personality that you get just from looking at their work. This impression is much more impactful when looking at work from artists whose art-making relies on the ability to make a lot from a little. Able Arts Work embodies the principles of DIY art making. Self-published and self-described, featured artists know how to make what they want from any supplies available. This show combines work by Able Arts artists as well as local artists who are a part of the DIY/zine community, a community that encourages those who want to create work that effects change with often only scissors and glue. first impressions is about art that tells you who made it, and what they’re all about. This show kicks off our annual CORE: Defining Ourselves exhibition.
