BRIEF: Visual arts: Big prints show at Highpoint Center

September 4, 2014

Sept. 04--StandOut Prints

Opening Friday: When Highpoint Center for Printmaking announced an international juried show, more than 800 entries flooded the south Minneapolis venue. The juror, Susan Tallman, is an art historian and editor-in-chief of "Art in Print" who also teaches at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The resulting exhibition features 67 images by 64 artists from four countries and 23 states. She chose prints that show "attention to locations and moments in time," she wrote, adding that their specificity runs counter to the prevailing winds of contemporary culture. While most images these days are "pixels without location, images without context, places without substance," the prints she picked attempt something more specific, more subtle, more eternal. As she put it, "printed matter has always had a magical ability to be both here and there, a thing you hold and a thing you hold in mind. That is what these prints capture." See for yourself. (6:30-9 p.m. Fri., free opening reception, Highpoint Center for Printmaking, 912 W. Lake St., Mpls., show ends Oct. 4, free, 612-871-1326 or
