Exhibition Overview

Through the medium of printmaking, artists from Hawai‘i and Minnesota have a pictorial dialogue about their individual geography.

It started with a conversation. Two people talking. That was the catalyst for 12 artists in Hawai‘i, and 12 artists on a land-locked parcel of earth just south of the Canadian border, to have a conversation in print—an exchange of visual ideas.

Each artist explores the characteristics of his/her native place, using a variety of interpretations of topography—terrestrial and marine; realistic and imaginary.

Prints, made in multiples, are designed for sharing. So each participating artist will receive a complete set of prints from all the
artists. By trading prints the artists truly create a dialogue with each other. The prints are housed in a collaborative portfolio designed and printed by artists from Minnesota and Hawai‘i.
