THURSDAY, JAN. 28, RALEIGH
WEEMS GALLERY AT MEREDITH COLLEGE—If memories of Colour Correction, the Nasher's excellent show of prints from last year, are still embossed on your brain, then freshen them up with PULL, a new exhibit of work by local and international printmakers at Meredith College. Curated by Supergraphic co-director Bill Fick and UNC-Chapel Hill art professor Beth Grabowski, the show features 23 artists from the U.S., the U.K. and Canada who demonstrate a variety of printmaking techniques, from humble screenprints to cutting-edge 3-D printing. Among the striking sample works we saw, Lynne Allen etches her Lakota Sioux family history on wood and deerskin. Fick offers a grotesquely blemished face that might have sprung from a Charles Burns comic, while Grabowski contributes a cooler design: a black ovoid shape surrounded by grassy scratches. After this opening reception, the show runs through March 27.
