Obsession: A Juried Exhibition of hand-pulled prints

Presented by Light Art Space sponsored by the Southwest Print Fiesta

OBSESSION is an exhibition of hand-pulled prints responding to the idea of a compulsive preoccupation with an object, idea, person, place, memory, phobia, pattern, thought, image, shape, word, and more. This exhibition will highlight the many visual guises that infatuation can take and challenge the viewer’s relationship to their own habitual fixations and proclivities.

Exhibition on view October 11- November 10, 2019
Reception Friday, October 11th 5 – 8pm

Valpuri Remling, Tamarind Master Printer
