Print Day in May and the California Society of Printmakers are pleased to announce TRACES of Print Day in May, an online exhibition of prints highlighting artwork made during Print Day in May 2020–2021.

Four CSP members are included in this highly competitive, international exhibition. Austin Buckingham, Israel Campos, Cathie Crawford, and Francis Valesco. Israel Campos has received the juror’s award selected by Liz Chaflin. Congratulations All!

Traces are marks, features, trails and tracks. To trace is to discover, pursue, find and track. The history of humanity can be traced through artists, their marks, pursuits, recordings and questions.

The Jurors:
Liz Chalfin, Founder Zea Mays Printmaking, Florence Massachusetts, USA
Raymond Arnold, Founder LARQ, Tasmania, Australia
Yamilys Brito Jorge, Director Taller Experimental de Grafica, Havana, Cuba

The California Society of Printmakers is pleased to announce our participation in the global art intervention, Extraction: Art at the Edge of the Abyss with the first of our exhibitions in this series, Searching For Meaning, opening at Gallery Route One, April 3–May 9, 2021 in Point Reyes Station, California.

This exhibition explores climate change and the impacts of extracting resources from the earth not only on the global ecosystem but also human ecology. As humans navigate this new changing world environment, we find ourselves searching for meaning. Juror, Dana Harris Seeger asks “If we can create the meaning that we all search for, how will we exemplify that? What will it look like?”
