PRESS RELEASE: Bennington College printmakers at VAE's Mill Gallery, Bennington

The Vermont Arts Exchange (VAE) presents Universal Health Care, an exhibition of work by seven advanced printmaking students from Bennington College, at VAE's Mill Gallery at the Sage Street Mill from Saturday, November 28 through the end of February. An artists' reception at VAE will launch the show on Tuesday, December 1, from 7 to 9 p.m.

The students in Bennington College's Advanced Printmaking course - Fennis Brown, Margaret Zayer, Natalie Kent, Sarah Kelly (shown at left), Genevieve Senchyna, Will Moss, and Elizabeth Bennett - proposed and executed projects of their own design. Working in a basic structure of critiques and discussions, the group focused in on a variety of printing techniques and ways of handling materials to execute their ideas. The featured artwork includes stone lithographs, photopolymer gravure, screen-printed wallpaper, T-shirts, books, unique 3D and mixed media prints, and copper plate etchings. The works are for sale and a price list is available.
